    The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Home Office announced on Wednesday 19 May that a total of 3,000 government jobs are set to be moved to regions outside of London as part of the Places for Growth Scheme to bring policy makers closer to communities and support economic growth.

    Salford is set significantly benefit from a major move by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, securing the lion’s share of job relocations.

    BEIS is a ministerial department, supported by 46 agencies and public bodies.

    The other areas set to benefit from one third of BEIS’s roles placed outside London are Birmingham, Cardiff and Darlington, Belfast and Edinburgh.

    The announcement was made by Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng and Home Secretary Priti Patel.

    Salford is also listed as one of the areas expected to benefit from an increase in Home Office personnel, including senior civil service roles.

    City Mayor of Salford Paul Dennett said:

    “This announcement is great news for Salford and local people, demonstrating the success of our long term strategy to bring in new investment and opportunities.

    “The relocation of jobs to Salford is greatly welcomed and we will work with the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Home Office to make it a local success. Relocations are not just about jobs being relocated outside of London, but also making sure that local people benefit the government department’s presence in our city. It is about unlocking opportunities and linking local people, local businesses and educational providers with what is on offer. It is our job to connect people and organisations in our city to the roles and opportunities available.

    “We’re also pleased that the department responsible for areas including business growth, industrial policy, renewable energy, science, research and development, and employment rights will have a significant base in our city and we welcome the opportunity to influencing their decisions and practices as well as the employment opportunities they’ll inevitably provide.

    “I am proud of the innovation of Salford; the city has a proven track record of attracting investment and creating jobs, growth and opportunities.

    “This announcement comes on the back of the opening of RHS Bridgewater - Europe’s biggest horticultural project this week – bring employment, creating an international visitor attraction, whilst also creating a huge economic boost for our city.”
