Growth in North East prompts Harvey Nash expansion
Harvey Nash secures modern Newcastle home
London – May 4, 2016 – Harvey Nash, the global professional recruitment and IT outsourcing group, today formally announces the movement of its Newcastle business to a new, modern and larger office space.
Originally launched in 2013 in response to the emergence of Newcastle as a technology hub of the UK, the business have gone from strength to strength and as a result has moved to the impressive Hoults Yard, which is home to over one hundred businesses from a variety of creative industries.
With the economy in the North East growing after a difficult recession, with particularly strong growth from the technology start-up sector, the new office comes at a crucial time. The 2016 Harvey Nash Technology Survey reported that 82 per cent of hiring managers in the North East are currently suffering from a skills shortage, and 42 per cent are expecting their permanent IT team to increase in size.
Through moving to this spacious new office, Harvey Nash has increased its capacity to help companies recruit hard-to-find technology talent, from software developers through to project managers and IT leaders.
Sandra Erickson, Associate Director for Harvey Nash Newcastle said:
“The city of Newcastle has long been a growth bed for technology firms, from small start ups to large enterprises, including one of the UK’s largest software companies. Now with the influx of a number of games developers and creative start-ups growing in the area, it’s becoming a real tech hub in the north of England. Hoults Yard is a fabulous space for our growing business and will help us connect with the creative entities in the area, over one hundred of which will be our neighbours. The increase in space will also allow us to grow the team, with new hires imminent.”
