Mansfield District Council is delighted to support this year’s Chad Business Awards again and to headline the Mayor’s Apprentice of the Year Award. Young people are vital to our ever-changing workplace and these awards throw a spotlight on the contribution that the next generation of talented entrepreneurs will bring to the economy.
The awards also allow local businesses to showcase their work and we are encouraging both well-established and new businesses to enter.
We encourage local businesses to nominate their company or their outstanding entrepreneur for an award. This is their opportunity to shine and to show their pride in the excellence and success they strive to achieve.
It is a great way to enhance your company profile and motivate employees, as well as showcasing your achievements and reputation.
There are financial benefits, too. Companies which have won a Chad Business Award in the past have subsequently enjoyed around a 38 per cent growth in sales.
The awards are happening at a time when the council has lots of exciting plans coming together for the district:
- Mansfield Townscape Heritage Project which will see nearly £850,000 worth of Heritage Lottery Fund grants available to help restore key town centre buildings.
- A multi-million pound investment in the town centre to rejuvenate the Old Town Hall and Stockwell Gate, which we recognise as a major gateway to the town.
We know thousands of jobs are dependent on the success of our high street retail and service sector employers so we’re committed to investing in its regeneration.
This district has so much to shout about and be proud of. As well as being among the top 10 locations in which to start up and grow a businesses, it is also been a successful place for large established companies such as Glenair UK, Linney and KAEFER Group.
The council’s is committed to supporting the local businesses through start-up and growth grants, free advice sessions and skills training. Find out more at https://invest.ashfield-mansfield.com or by calling 01623 463499.
