Introduction to Wakefield

The Wakefield District’s economy is worth £6.5 billion; making us the 4th largest in the Leeds city region.

Wakefield is one of the most accessible places in the UK. Three of the country’s main motorway networks meet just outside the city, as well as a main trainline to London. We link East to West and North to South, as well as being on the West-European Economic Corridor linking us directly to the continent by air and sea.

Being one of the UKs most accessible districts by road, air and rail the district has thrived becoming home to large corporations such as such as Teva, DHL, Warburton’s, Haribo and Coca Cola. Our transport and infrastructure makes us a prime location for businesses to invest in.

We have strong representation across different sectors such as Manufacturing, Professional services and Creative and Digital. Hosting a collaborative business community we have various independent groups working to strengthen Wakefield’s positioning across these sectors making Wakefield a catalyst for growth.

As a business location Wakefield has a flexible workforce, extensive land and property options with good choices in education, training and housing. Excellent healthcare facilities and some of the UK’s most unique and popular cultural attractions all help to make the Wakefield district an opportunity not to be missed.
