According to a recent study by, Newcastle is best city to work in the UK. Newcastle was ranked alongside 66 other cities, with rankings based on connectivity, co-working spaces and places to eat and drink.

We asked the business community why they think Newcastle is such a great place to work.

‘Datatrial are proud of our 20 years of heritage here in Newcastle.  With huge growth in the tech sector attracting the best people to the region, a transport infrastructure allowing them flexibility with travel, a plethora of trendy working spaces and of course a famed social calendar where else would you choose to be?’


‘Newcastle is an ideal location for us for a variety of reasons, including the strength of the region’s universities, access to high-quality and skilled  talent, and high quality infrastructure. The work carried out in our legal process and business services centre benefits from Newcastle’s position as a centre of innovation and technological advancement. Generally, there is also very much a can-do attitude to business.  Add to that, a great environment both for work and leisure and it ticks all the boxes.  We’re proud to be an integral part of the local economy.’

‘We know Newcastle is great because all our directors have lived and worked elsewhere in the UK before choosing to make the north east home.

All of Karol’s award winning public relations staff live with twenty minutes of our office, a converted pub overlooking the Tyne river, and we have the best of both worlds; a city full of wonderful things to do and the wildest countryside in Britain on our doorstep to explore.

Add to that the energy and collaborative mindset of businesses in the region and we know we’ve got it good!  We are proud to welcome clients from right across the UK and Europe to Newcastle – they are always amazed by what they find.’
