Place & Destination

By building on our success with people, businesses and place, we’ve grown into an organisation with a truly national footprint.

But success begins at home and we’re fiercely proud of our heritage, which is why we’ll always have one foot firmly in Manchester.

As the economic delivery arm of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), The Growth Company is keen to give back and we support growth in our home town in four key ways:

  • Raising Greater Manchester’s Profile

  • Attracting investment in Manchester

  • Policy Strategy and Research

  • GM Futures

Working at home in Greater Manchester and across the UK, we’re creating a future where everyone has the chance of a better quality of life through new skills, investment and opportunity.
