The top ten is not completely dominated by one region, but I hope in years to come we will see an even more diverse range of areas appearing in the top spots
South East (PRWEB UK) 21 March 2013
A new league table from company formation agents, Duport.co.uk shows which areas of the UK had the highest percentage of young director appointments during the fourth quarter of last year.
The table reveals that 6 out of the top ten areas are in the South East. Salisbury comes in first place with 8.97% of directors appointed during Q4 under the age of 25. Next in line is Eastbourne with 7.35%, followed by Cambridge with 7.31%.
The West Midlands is also well represented, with Worcester, Shrewsbury and Solihull all appearing at the top of the table. However, there are no Northern towns in the top ten; the first to appear is Harrogate at number 18.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis commented:
“Our league table seems to suggest that there are more opportunities available for young directors in the South East. The top ten is not completely dominated by one region, but I hope in years to come we will see an even more diverse range of areas appearing in the top spots.”
