Inward Investment

Driving Inward Investment


We deliver a programme of promotional activity to encourage and secure new inward investment and reduce barriers to growth for businesses looking to relocate or expand; and work to attract investment in key employment sites and regeneration schemes to help create high value jobs.

We can also support you with a range of skills and workforce services, including; linking into the highest quality local provision to develop your workforce, sign posting to local and national skills funding opportunities, providing warm introductions to key recruitment and development specialists and training organisations.

We can also provide investors with an overview of  schools, colleges and higher education.

Our dedicated Access to Finance service offers a confidential and impartial  route to help businesses source the most suitable finance and practical support to ensure they are investment ready.
