11 June 2014 – A new video showing business growth in West Cheshire is being seen by national and international delegates in Liverpool.

Produced by Cheshire West and Chester Council, the video is being shown during the International Festival for Business running from June to July.

Charlie Seward, the Council’s Director of Growth and Prosperity said: “The video shows how West Cheshire is a great place for business.

“From an initial enquiry we have specialists on hand to find the correct business premises and can help in the recruitment of staff as well as help local people gain the skills needed for a successful job interview. The Council also has specialists who can aid a company through the planning process.

“We believe that our welcoming approach is part of the Borough’s success story and we will continue to work hard to attract more businesses to the area.”
