Stuart Bullock, Managing Director of Leeds-based IT and business consultancy BJSS, has signed a Partner Memorandum with the Government’s Northern Powerhouse scheme.
Under the scheme, BJSS will help the North of England achieve its full potential.
A recent winner of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, BJSS designs, delivers and supports large-scale digital transformation on behalf of the world’s largest organisations.
It employs over 600 technologists in its Northern office locations of Leeds, Manchester and Nottingham, and has an annual turnover exceeding £100 million.
As part of the Government’s Industrial Strategy, the Northern Powerhouse Partners Programme is a coalition of businesses that aim to promote transformative economic growth across the North.
It achieves this by bringing together businesses, institutions and organisations which are passionate about the north of England and north Wales and share the government’s ambition to draw on the region’s great cities, towns and rural communities to become a powerhouse for the UK economy.
Northern Powerhouse Minister Jake Berry MP said: “I’m delighted to welcome BJSS to the Northern Powerhouse Partners Programme.
“They are a Yorkshire-based company with a strong track record of contributions to the Northern Powerhouse economy and enthusiasm for supporting Northern graduates and apprentices so we are in a great place to work together to build a more prosperous and inclusive economy which is fit for the future.”
