Sage was born and built in Newcastle. There’s a fantastic energy up here. The region also inherently has a strong innovation thread running throughout it that has resulted in it being one of the UK’s strongest tech hubs; one where creative minds can thrive, create and challenge the status quo. It’s this problem solving, creative and inquisitive attitude that goes down well at Sage. Add into the mix the warm personalities here and it is the perfect combination for us and it’s one our customers love.
Sage is one of the largest business software companies in the world, and the global market leader for technology that helps businesses of all sizes manage everything from money to people whether they’re a start-up, scale-up or enterprise. Founded in 1981, Sage is now one of Europe’s largest tech companies, employing 13,000 people and serving three million customers across 23 countries.
Sage’s global headquarters is at Newcastle’s Great Park, three miles from the city centre and close to the A1, and Newcastle’s airport and rail station.
The company maintains close links with its local community – its outreach work with young people, teachers and schools focuses on teaching tech skills to children as young as eight – and Sage also has close ties with the region’s schools and universities, supporting the STEM agenda. Sage’s Start-Up Exchange programme encourages international business growth and has seen the company partner with North East start-up Drone Ops, a business that offers research and development services involving Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) and robotic technologies.
