Why work with us
Man sat at office looking at something to the left.

The location, cost, package of support and the potential for community are what attracted me to the Centre. Moving in has helped increase my productivity and helped me to focus time better.  I wish I had taken the office on sooner!

Meet Fran Parkinson

University Business Centre Manager

Its an absolute joy to play a part in helping the growth and success of the many businesses we work with. As well as overseeing the Leeds, Wakefield and Halifax Centres, I support the running of our Wakefield Centre. Wakefield is a hugely vibrant city with significant investment from Wakefield Council, making it an attractive option for SMEs to base their business. It’s a place where I really enjoy working.

I am also supporting the work of the #WECAN project. As a fellow woman in leadership, it is truly a delight to be helping other women in business to develop their confidence and leadership skills.
