As one of the largest employment locations in the North West’, Bolton is set to create more than 10,000 jobs in a variety of key growth sectors over the next 15 years.
Bolton has the second highest employee base in Greater Manchester, yet with wages below the regional average, labour costs remain attractive to potential employers, as does the good mix of skills amongst the workforce.
Public transport links are excellent – including a regular bus route along the A6. 2.3 million people live within 30 minutes’ drive to work time of Logistics North. This will be further enhanced by the completion of Trinity Interchange – a new integrated bus and rail hub adjacent to Bolton railway station.
Occupiers will also have free-of-charge access to MIDAS, Manchester’s award-winning investment agency. With extensive sector & market knowledge, MIDAS aims to minimise the risk and maximise the opportunities of locating in Manchester and can provide a range of business support to help with setup.
