Our city is packed with opportunities to innovate and grow
It’s part of our ambition to become the best city in the UK, and we’re already the main driver of economic growth for the Leeds City Region. Leeds has access to over 3 million people, including a skilled workforce of 1.4 million, all helping businesses to thrive here.
Leeds is a global digital destination of choice for people, investment and innovation. Bring your ideas and we will provide the cutting-edge digital skills, tools and infrastructure you need to bring them to life. We love to collaborate within sectors and across sectors. Invest in us and our promise is that we’ll invest in you.
Our digital sector is growing faster than anywhere in the UK, employing over 30,000 people. Leeds also provides key hubs for financial and professional services, manufacturing, health and innovation, and the creative industries.
The city’s young, mobile workforce has attracted some of the world’s leading companies – Burberry, Reed Smith, and Perform Group – who join over 32,000 businesses who already call Leeds home. National broadcaster Channel 4 is about to establish a landmark digital creative unit in the city, which could create 1,200 jobs with an economic impact of over £1 billion over the next decade.
