Northern Powerhouse – full steam ahead!
After coming into power in 2010, the coalition Government launched its proposal to boost economic growth in the North of England, and so the phrase ‘Northern Powerhouse’ was born. At last year’s Spending Review George Osborne reiterated this same pledge to maintain a high level of investment in the North.
Figures released last week by the Office for National Statistics show that UK employment is currently enjoying a record high of 74.1%. George Osborne tweeted these statistics and highlighted the positive effect that the whole of the Northern Powerhouse is experiencing.
It is fantastic that these numbers are reflecting the commitment and strength of talent that lies in the north of the UK. The North is leading the way when it comes to growing regional economies, showcasing how we can compete within the global market.
Freedom Finance has experienced substantial growth over the past few years, most notably within our broker support team, underwriting, packaging and sales support divisions. This recruitment activity follows strong talent moving into the financial services sector in the North. We have ambitious plans for taking the business forward and hope to continue boosting staff numbers and providing employment opportunities for the local area.← back to posts
