As one of the UK’s core cities, the regional capital of North East England is an integral part of the Northern Powerhouse. Our city is home to more than 50,000 registered businesses, two world-class universities, 50,000 students, a 24-acre innovation hub and some of the world’s most iconic brands. Being internationally connected, surrounded by skill and one of the UK’s most cost-effective cities, we’re attracting more and more businesses each year who recognise the value of our assets and as a place to live, work and enjoy. It is promising to see businesses recognising us as a ‘northern city hub’ as they look to move from multiple office locations and big London-based headquarters, valuing the innovation assets, quality of life and talent we have on offer.
Newcastle’s business offer is all about ideas, energy, and the brand-new world of data, with highest density of STEM students in England and one of the most vibrant and fastest growing digital clusters outside of London. Firms see our region as a place to find and nurture fresh exceptional talent, a place to create an innovative & inclusive culture, where employees can enjoy a superb quality of life in and out of the workplace. Newcastle is a place to embrace. An exciting blend of the historic and the contemporary, a buzzing city, a tranquil coast and countryside all on your doorstep.
This free webinar delivered by Invest Newcastle in partnership with DynamoNE, will focus on Newcastle and why it is seen as a place where companies can grow & flourish, benefitting from a hugely diverse & skilled talent pool, the UKs lowest attrition rates, and happier (and therefore more productive) staff.
Our panellists will share their story and success in identifying and nurturing top-class talent and skills in the region:
- Giselle Stewart OBE, Director of UK Corporate Affairs for Ubisoft
- Richard Smith, Founder of Codification
- Sue Yoxall, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Mkodo
