Talent needs to underpin Manchester’s future growth

Ken Bishop / 25 April 2017

Manchester must continue to evolve

As Joanne Roney takes the helm at the City Council, ensuring that Manchester can continue to evolve into a European business destination must be a key objective.

Manchester has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Developments like Spinningfields, Mayfield, St John’s and NOMA, as well as a wealth of smaller developments, have been crucial in priming the city for increased inward investment and economic growth.

Focus and vision

Many of these successes can be attributed to Sir Howard Bernstein’s focus and vision to support property development in the city, which has quite literally laid the foundation for expansion. Handing over to Joanne Roney, who has previous form on social infrastructure and skills development, comes at an important time.

Further investment required for city’s talent pool

To continue the upward trajectory, the Council now needs to focus on the city’s talent pool. This means investing in further education, the universities and our science, technology, and professional and financial services sectors.

Broadening of talent pool is a necessity

While London is a far more expensive place to base an office, Manchester’s cheaper rents will only go so far in attracting new businesses to the City. Broadening the talent pool is a necessity. This creates a virtuous cycle as it makes the City more attractive to graduates and new businesses who each need one another.

Sustainable growth should be driven from the bottom up

The pipeline of stock coming forward in the next few years will only go so far in satisfying some of the larger requirements in the market, and demand is still dramatically outstripping supply. However, the key to building sustainable growth is to drive it from the bottom up, through the talent pool.

Regeneration crucial part of city’s continued growth

Given the strength of the market and the many regeneration initiatives already in place, there may be more gains made from this less glamorous area of the Council’s agenda than new flagship property schemes. These announcements may be less scene-stealing but they will be a crucial part of the city’s continued growth.
