ANS has invested in a tech hub in Manchester that provides a collaborative space for employees, customers, and the local community and charity partners.
The space will focus on inclusion, accessibility and fostering training and development of new talent. Partners include Manchester Children's Hospital and Manchester and Hide Out Youth Zone.
The tech hub also features a social and recreational space, as well as modern classrooms to support students from the surrounding universities. The campus houses ANS’s Training Academy and its Apprentice Academy, which has seen 250 individuals graduate to date.
Features such as a lower reception desk, hearing aid loops, accessible ‘You Loo’ bathrooms and prayer rooms focus on making technology available to all.
Richard Thompson, CEO at ANS, said: “Our vision is to create a tech movement that empowers individuals, businesses, and communities to reach their full potential through technology.”
