A place to work, train and develop
Alconbury Weald is not just a great place to live, it’s also a great place to work, develop your career and learn new skills.
Alconbury Weald’s Enterprise Campus will be your next-door neighbour. This government-backed Enterprise Zone is located in the middle of three significant business and technology hubs: the global innovation centre of Cambridge, the industrial heartland of Peterborough and the Midlands; and the high-tech and niche manufacturing in Huntingdonshire.
The Campus includes:
- The Incubator – the first flagship building offering flexible and inspiring space to small and start up businesses
- The Club – meeting event space, gym and café
- Bespoke buildings for manufacturing, engineering and low carbon companies: with three planned for 2016/17
- A Mid Tech cluster in development – providing flexible solutions for offices, R&D and manufacturing under one roof
Once completely operational, the businesses at the Campus are expected to employ around 8,000 people. So if you live and work at Alconbury Weald, your daily commutes could be a cycle ride through linear parks and woodlands or a five-minute bus ride.
