North West proves an attractive proposition to contractors

Northern hubs in and around Manchester are offering increasing contracting opportunities, that’s according to specialist professional employment provider, giant group.

The company’s team in Manchester has already seen a successful year with increasing contractor activity as more organisations relocate to the growing business hub. And as the appeal of the area continues to grow, giant has seen an increase in IT and financial services organisations bringing in niche contractors to set up projects in Manchester and its surrounding areas.

This is further supported by a recent announcement from Manchester’s inward investment agency, MIDAS, which has supported the creation of 3,038 jobs across 81 projects in Greater Manchester during the past year.

It is reported that, of these recent investments, the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and F&P (Financial and Professional services) sectors have supplied the highest number of new jobs with a 23% and 19% jobs share respectively.

Matthew Brown, Managing Director of giant, commented on this regional growth “As more organisations look to relocate to the growing business developments in the north it’s perhaps unsurprising that we’ve seen such a rise in demand for specialist contractors in the region. Our team in Manchester has been working closely with local recruitment consultancies to ensure contractors are reaping the benefits of this growing economy.”
