A city committed to connecting graduates to its bustling industries
As a proud student city with two well-regarded universities, the city of Nottingham has worked hard to make its academic heritage part of its economic future. The University of Nottingham’s University Enterprise Zone (UEZ) has been praised by government ministers in recent years for the way in which it is preparing graduates for the world of work and better understanding what businesses are looking for in graduate recruits.
In recent years, Nottingham City Council has also sought to re-establish Nottingham as a leading manufacturing and engineering power in the UK, whilst cementing its world-leading creative excellence. The Nottingham Growth Plan was subsequently born, aiming at reducing the city’s overreliance on the service sector and nurturing a multi-faceted economy. Today, it is still used as the roadmap for fuelling the East Midlands’ economic growth engine.
It's also worth noting that the City Council is also embarking on a bold plan for Nottingham to become the UK’s first carbon neutral city. Its vision for the city’s post-Covid recovery is focused on Nottingham becoming a greener, more innovative and digitally enabled city, which can add value to businesses based here.
