Derby is a thriving town that recognises the importance of investment when it comes to supporting growth in the area. Its commitment to ensuring businesses have all they need to thrive in the region has seen vast financial investment over the past years and many new projects for the future. It now sees Derby become one of the most enterprising forward-thinking cities to live and work within the UK.
But what makes Derby a great place for your business?
Derby provides a central England location within the heart of the Midlands, offering businesses and residents the perfect spot to base themselves. Its central location provides road and rail links to travel around the country in a timely manner.
Good transport links.
Derby benefits highly from its central position within the UK. Derby has good motorway links. It is close to the M1 and has a good road infrastructure, meaning you always have excellent roads and can readily travel both North and South.
Derby’s train station operates trains that provide links for passengers travelling all over the country. Direct access to the north, including Sheffield and Newcastle and southbound to Nottingham, Leicester and London.
Derby City Centre also offers two park and ride schemes when you want to leave the car and use public transport for a visit to the many amenities the town boasts.
Great serviced offices.
Derby benefits from a wide range of businesses that have chosen to base themselves within the scope of serviced offices, commercial and business premises that are available. If you are looking for your first premises or relocating a business, whatever its size or office/commercial space requirement, Derby’s commercial properties offer leased and freehold premises to meet all business needs.
Whether it’s a serviced office, commercial unit, a combination, or even a laboratory, you will find something suitable. Serviced offices are a popular choice for new and existing businesses. Perhaps, choose an office space that runs alongside or within a commercial unit or laboratory, so you don’t need to be based on multiple sites.
When you base your business at Derby based facilities such as those provided by RTC Business Park you’re sure to have a good base for success. Such business parks offer a range of commercial units and offices suitable for companies of all sizes and needs. Some of these suit those looking for on-site restaurants, catering facilities, conference and meeting rooms all within prestigious landscaped grounds, including a range of serviced and non-serviced units.
Great for out of work experiences.
When it comes to attracting talent, it can’t all be about work, even when your workspace and surroundings are lovely. Derby City Centre offers exceptional experiences for shopping, eating out, sport and leisure facilities as well as museums, art galleries and the corporate and team-building opportunities that Pride Park Football Stadium has to offer.
High calibre workforce.
It’s no surprise that the opportunities Derby offer with its array of exceptional working environments and personal experiences, that high calibre staff are readily looking for opportunities within the area. Derby also boasts one of the highest graduate retention rates in the country, meaning you already have access to a locally-based high-quality workforce. The attraction of lower costs of living to cities with comparable facilities and a vibrant and diverse population make Derby a location that offers an excellent choice for individuals looking for employment either close to home or to decide on relocation.
When you choose to relocate to an established modern business park, you can benefit from the diverse range of companies that have already made it their working home. Some of the purpose-built business parks in Derby also offer opportunities for business support and services that are perhaps harder to access in some other forward-thinking cities.
