Today I was pleased to visit Netbiz Group, a leading web design company based in the centre of Newcastle, and meet Managing Director Will (pictured), Account Manager Sue (pictured), and Brand Manager Jess.
Netbiz specialises in bespoke web design, web development, search engine optimisation, and online marketing. The digital agency has over 500 customers and has developed more than 1000 websites for a range of businesses - including many based in the North Staffordshire area, some of whom have needed websites for the first time during the pandemic.
It was also fantastic to hear that, as part of its business growth strategy, Netbiz is creating local employment opportunities in the digital sector and will shortly be welcoming a new apprentice.
The digital sector is worth hundreds of millions a day to the UK economy, and our country needs an estimated 1.2 million more people with specialist digital skills by 2024. It is therefore encouraging that Netbiz is committed to attracting and retaining top industry talent here in Newcastle.
