Financial & Professional Services

We offer a business location with a wealth of experience. It's why the AA were one of the first multinationals to move here in 1973 and many businesses have followed, benefitting greatly from being part of the financial and professional services hub that Basingstoke has created.

Whether you’re a financial provider looking to locate near like-minded businesses, thinking about where to locate your support functions to or looking to improve your operational efficiency, Basingstoke has attracted business in this sector for many years.

Our competitive advantage:

  • A strong workforce. The sector employs over 16,500 highly educated and motivated individuals, many from our local financial and professional business student population
  • An enviable base of essential skills including IT, mathematics, accountancy, economics, finance and business studies all here, locally available, keen to talk to employers like you.
  • Robust local economy has created a dynamic business centre.

Come and see what we have to offer. You’ll find you are in very good company - AA and Barclays are part of the townscape with their landmark buildings and Network Rail, Gist and Hogg Robinson all have business service operations here.

"We can attract the right employees locally with a good quality pool of talent, supported by excellent schools and colleges offering graduates of finance and commerce, as well as digital and media."
