No physical location has been chosen as yet for the hub, which is expected to bring around 50 jobs to the city and provide fresh impetus to the independent production sector, which has developed a strong presence around Pacific Quay.
A Channel 4 spokesperson remarked: “Further detailed work will now continue to identify locations and property within the national HQ and creative hub locations. It is envisaged that staff will begin to move to the new locations in H2 2019.”
