Worsley and Eccles South MP Barbara Keeley has welcomed ITV’s announcement that it has agreed to move its operations to MediaCityUK.
Barbara Keeley said:
“This announcement is great news for Salford. MediaCityUK expects to be home to up to 5,000 jobs by next year and over 15,000 jobs in the longer term, and is already providing new opportunities for people in Salford. This is particularly welcome now, as budget cuts affect jobs elsewhere in Salford.
“ITV will join the BBC and other companies to bring world-class investment and production to Salford, and this will cement our place as the key base for the digital and creative industries in the North West. This represents a big step forward for regeneration in Salford.”
