We are also the host provider for the East of England Operational Delivery Network putting us at the forefront of service design in the region.

Norwich is served by two large shopping centres, with all the national chains you would expect, alongside independent retailers in the historic streets and vibrant market. The city also has more than its fair share of restaurants, pubs, theatres and clubs to keep you occupied outside work.
