Our region is a leading location for Global Business Services.


Part of the Global Business Services sector, outsourcing activity is an increasingly important source of employment in the region. In the past few years, the growing trend for delivering outsourcing activity has accelerated rapidly.

We now have a distinct IT outsourcing cluster, offering end-to-end IT services, from first and second line call handlers to software innovation and development. The cluster includes several high profile organisations including Capgemini, Atos and Fujitsu, all servicing a range of blue chip and major public sector clients.

Opportunities for growth in the Business Services sector exist across our region, for both outsourced and in-house sites. Key areas include shared services functions in particular where complex, high-value skills sets are required such as IT, Human Resources, Customer Service, Legal Services, Finance and Accounting.
