As we venture deeper into the Government’s National Infrastructure Commission, Milton Keynes sits at the heart of a new opportunity area – the Cambridge – Milton Keynes – Oxford corridor; dubbed the “knowledge arc”. There are opportunities to secure substantial external investment into improving road, rail and digital infrastructure and with this we are able to respond effectively to the growing needs of our customers.

"The Regional locations will be a great opportunity to meet prospective clients and candidates, deliver high quality solutions and build credibility for the business opportunities that the aspire brand has become known and trusted to offer. Growth means houses and jobs, two of the key elements in life and with this, anticipate that business leaders will seize the opportunity with the same vision of sense following the £1billion of private investment that has been committed to these locations in the last decade. The cities skylines have been transformed with new architecture, developing infrastructure and an unparalleled air of optimism.”
