With its convenient transport links and great local amenities Milton Keynes is becoming an increasingly popular spot for office relocation. 45 miles northwest of London, this large Buckinghamshire location was one of the first new towns to be specifically designed as a modern urban business environment. Government figures indicate that many companies are now starting to recognise the potential of having a new office here, with on average five businesses moving into, or expanding within, the city every month.
As a business environment, Milton Keynes has a good mix of existing companies, from large blue chip organisations such as Argos and BP, to smaller sized businesses (87% of businesses here employ 20 people or less). The workforce in Milton Keynes is well suited to making moving to a new office in Milton Keynes much easier where additional staff are required, as 41% of the population is under 35 and 53% of the workforce is managerial, professional or skilled. The city has a wide range of housing, exciting leisure and entertainment activities, as well as the UK’s largest school building programmes and four universities, which makes it a great choice as a location for a new office in terms of staff relocation. Add to that the fact that London is just 34 minutes away by train and that also makes Milton Keynes easily commutable.
