Earlier this year Invest Ashfield & Mansfield launched a monthly feature in the CHAD to let businesses across Ashfield & Mansfield know all about the useful and important work being delivered through this project.  Here’s the latest CHAD update for August:

Invest Ashfield & Mansfield’s recent activity has focused on promotion, including a brochure and a suite of videos, to be launched in September, and ensuring we gain maximum benefit from our attendance at MIPIM UK in October.

Our AMbassadors have decided which sectors we want to proactively promote (Advanced manufacturing, Business services, Construction, Healthcare and Logistics) and the Key Messages to use:

  • One of the most cost-effective places to do business in the UK – save around 48% in accommodation costs.
  • 6 million people within a two-hour drive – an extensive, accessible market.
  • Recent enterprise and infrastructure investment of over £100m – including education and transport links.
  • Over 400 acres of development land with high-quality commercial property available.
  • Vision West Nottinghamshire College – within the UK top five of all providers for apprenticeships.
  • World-renowned Sherwood Forest and Peak District on the doorstep.
  • Business-friendly and home to award-winning business networking & hub organisation: Mansfield 2020.
  • World-class businesses include Rolls Royce and Bombardier.
  • Top 20 city for low carbon emissions: improved environment, quality of life and tangible business benefits.

If your business needs extra resource to complete an important project, then our Graduates into Enterprise scheme, offering six-month placements, could be exactly what you are looking for.  Placements can cover a wide range of subject areas and, since students are paid a weekly training allowance of £267, businesses benefit from completing projects they would not otherwise have had the time or resources for at a greatly subsidised cost.
