wakefield - the place for business
WAKEFIELD - OPEN FOR BUSINESS
With a £6.5 billion economy and being one of the UK’s most accessible cities, the investment case for Wakefield is obvious. It is the fourth largest economy in the Leeds city region and 30th in England.
Wakefield’s infrastructure connections make it hugely accessible, with the main motorway networks meeting just outside the city centre along with a regular mainline rail service to London. Not just a key location nationally, linking east to west and north to south, it is also on the west-European economic corridor which connects Wakefield to the continent by air and sea. This accessibility by road, air and rail has seen Wakefield thrive, with household names such as Burberry, Haribo and Coca Cola making it their home, a flourishing business community has ensued which is a mix large corporates and SMEs.
A great place, not just for business, but also for lifestyle with access to some of the country’s best cultural assets like The Hepworth Wakefield and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Wakefield’s workforce is flexible and it’s lucky enough to have a diverse talent pool for employers alongside extensive land and property options, a great choice of schools, training, excellent healthcare and various housing options. Contact our team for a chat to see how we can help!
