We saw the opportunity to set up a team of data and analytics specialists in a location that could offer great value for money for our clients and also a really good quality of life and high access to talent. Other places were also being considered internationally, however, our HQ is in London and Newcastle is only three hours away by train. It was also critical that, wherever we set up, we had access to really good graduates, which usually means choosing a vibrant city location. Newcastle fitted the bill.
