Expression of Interest closing date 20191025

St Helens Chamber is the most successful organisation of its kind in the UK.
Currently the Chamber has an annual turnover of £5m and a staff of 120. Our strength is that we have moved beyond the typical ‘Chamber of Commerce’ model, and have recognised the role that the private sector can play in the broader community, particularly in an area which has high levels of unemployment and a relatively low business density. Our core mission is “To support our Members and enhance the economic success of St Helens businesses and people”.

Our business delivers four main functions:
Business – we aim to boost business performance by delivering a range of business support.
Enterprise – we aim to inspire the entrepreneurs of tomorrow by bringing businesses and schools closer together and we deliver an effective business start up programme for anyone wishing to set up a new business.
Employment – through our employment arm, Starting Point, we offer help and support to unemployed people and young people to find work, and offer help to employers with their recruitment.
Training – we help to develop the workforce to its full potential by providing bespoke training solutions meeting employers’ needs, many of which are free of charge or subsidised.
