Business Doncaster achieves record-breaking year for business investment and job creation

Business Doncaster through its unique public and private sector partnerships offer a wide range of free and impartial advice and guidance to businesses throughout the borough, providing a dedicated relationship manager to support businesses with their business goals.

In the year ending April 2018, the team contributed to over £220 million of new inward investment and supported the creation of almost 1300 jobs in the borough.

Chris Dungworth, Business Doncaster Investment Manager said: "I'm delighted to see these figures, it really is a tribute to the energy of businesses in the Doncaster borough and to the expert advice and signposting of our account managers and business advisors.

"We have a huge pool of knowledge and our highly experienced team of specialists work at all levels and across all sectors including sales and marketing, finance, property search and new product development. The team work also in partnership with many partners and other organisations across the region and nationally, providing businesses with the most appropriate help and advice."

In the most recent edition of the Demos-PwC Good Growth for Cities Index, Doncaster was highlighted as being one of the top five fastest improving business locations, driven primarily by the largest increase in both new businesses per head and skill levels of young people. 

Support for businesses is offered through networking events, access to finance, export and innovation advice, supply chain and tendering, PR and workforce development. In addition to these, Business Doncaster also provides access to a series of free workshops on topical subjects such as GDPR and Social Media Marketing.  

Over the next five years Doncaster is predicted to have one of the highest economic growth rates in the Sheffield City Region, driven by a number of key development projects that act as a catalyst for business development, inward investment and job creation particularly in the logistics, engineering, rail and aviation sectors.
