Global tech consultancy Credera brings 200 new jobs to Newcastle
RMT Accountants & Business Advisors has worked closely with global technology and management consultancy Credera to help them choose Newcastle as the location for their UK expansion and implement plans to create 200 high-tech jobs in the North East.
Credera worked with the Gosforth based firm to secure a £1m Inward Investment Grant from the North of Tyne Combined Authority, which will support its move to The Catalyst building within the landmark Newcastle Helix hybrid city quarter later this year.
The Dallas headquartered boutique consulting firm, which focuses on strategy, innovation, data and technology, will create around 160 highly skilled positions for programme managers, consultants and engineers with expertise in cloud, data, and software engineering in the first instance, with a further 40 new jobs to follow.
Michael Cantwell and Julie Cuthbertson at RMT Accountants & Business Advisors worked with Credera’s UK management team to develop and refine its Inward Investment Grant application and lead the application process.
RMT was introduced to Credera by Invest Newcastle, part of NewcastleGateshead Initiative (NGI), which has been working with Credera since last autumn on establishing a presence in the region, as part of its drive towards enhancing Newcastle’s position as a leading UK tech hub.
Credera is part of the worldwide Omnicom Precision Marketing Group and has a growing global team of talented consultants in the US, UK, India and Singapore which is driving impact for companies around the world.
Michael Cantwell, head of corporate finance at RMT Accountants & Business Advisors, commented: “Newcastle is increasingly recognised as one of the UK’s leading hubs for the knowledge economy and attracting such a well-regarded technology firm as Credera to the region is further evidence of this growing reputation.
Chris Dean, Credera’s CEO in the UK, added: “Launching our Newcastle office marks the start of another exciting chapter in the Credera story. We believe that the city’s growing tech scene will open the door to new and exciting opportunities for our people and clients alike, and we look forward to welcoming new and diverse perspectives to our community.”
