Stockport’s entrepreneurs of the future had the chance to be inspired when they visited Stockport’s newest business district.
The youngsters joined companies who have made Stockport Exchange their home to find out more about the jobs being created here in their town.
Local primary school pupils met representatives from musicMagpie, Stagecoach, Holiday Inn Express, Sainsburys and Cafelito to learn more about their businesses, the jobs they have brought to Stockport Exchange and what they look for in future employees.
“As Stockport grows and develops, it is important that children and young people to know that they have the potential to fulfil their dreams, and be excited about the opportunities being created locally to help them achieve this.”
Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration commented:
“Our investment work is about the people of Stockport both now and in the future. We want children and young people in our town to be as ambitious for themselves as we are for Stockport.
“As developments like Stockport Exchange open they bring with them many new opportunities and jobs that we want everyone in our town to be able to benefit from, whether now or in the years to come. Regeneration in Stockport continues at pace with further development of our new commercial quarter given the green light and the council’s commitment to further investment.”
The visit shone yet another light on Stockport Exchange development which was fully let within only six months of its completion.
Being developed in partnership with Muse Developments, phase 2 of Stockport Exchange has proven phenomenally successful since its completion and the area is already home to over 250 new staff. The demand for the buildings was so high that plans for the next phase of the development are already moving ahead.
