Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire has all of the key conditions that any growing business would need. That’s why there are so many great stories of how local companies have grown to become national and global players.
The secret of our success is simple. We support business. We make the investments that help to unlock the potential in our area and make it easier for major companies to grow here.
Successful businesses need to be able to recruit and expand. That’s why we’re investing in our skills base and creating a pipeline of talent from local schools, colleges and universities. An Education Trust has been launched to work with education providers and businesses on skills issues.
Successful businesses need space to grow. That’s why we’re investing in sites and infrastructure. Like the transport improvements at i54 South Staffordshire and the new central business district in Stoke-on-Trent City Centre/Smithfield to provide space for new headquarters and back-offices.
Successful businesses need the right access to funding. That’s why the Local Enterprise Partnership is coordinating and promoting assistance which already exists and they’re working with Government and the banks to create new packages.
The Make it Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire team can help to provide information, support and connections that can drive your growth.
