Capita Symonds has seven offices across Cumbria and the
north east of England.
Capita Symonds worked in strategic partnership with Cumbria
County Council between 2001 and 2011 delivering a number of
benefits to the region including the design and construction of a
new Regional Business Centre at Kingmoor Park in Carlisle and the
generation of capital receipts of £7.5m for the council
and £26m best value cost savings for the council. The
partnership also was the investment of over £11m into the local
economy; and the creation of 450 local jobs across Cumbria. The
partnership came to a close in January 2011 but Capita Symonds
maintains a strong presence in the region
