The Professional, Financial and Business Services sector has been steadily gaining a foothold within the district. There are currently just over 2,000 people employed within the sector, working within a growing number of regional and nationwide businesses, including accountancy firms, legal services, architects and insurance brokers.
Harris Irwin Architects one of the UK’s leading, and awarding-winning specialist care and dementia housing architectural practices, Gayle and Philipson an independent financial planning and investment management firm with offices across the UK and Lycetts, one of the UK’s leading independently-operated insurance brokers with over 60 years’ experience.
The key to this growth is the availability of a wide range of bespoke, high-quality offices located on well-connected business parks. This provides the ideal environment for smaller regional businesses and head offices for nationwide organisations.
Supporting this growth is the lower-than-average salary and office costs; helping businesses to keep overheads down and running efficiently.
