Skills & Employment
We’re acutely aware of the need for a skilled and available workforce and are making strides supporting employers and potential investors with the skills they need for their workforce. Through the ‘Trafford Pledge’ we help them to recruit the people they need locally and we work closely with Trafford College and other providers to ensure we have effective apprenticeship opportunities and support in place.
We are also working with businesses by providing opportunities and access to resources to help them to establish and grow, with our town centres being revitalised.
Staff on our Business Relationship Programme proactively meets with strategic businesses in Trafford on a regular basis to ensure they are provided with the support they need. In partnership with the Business Growth Hub we are delivering the Start Smart programme through a dedicated advisor providing support for pre-start and newly established businesses.
