Celebrating apprenticeships in Chesterfield

Businesses throughout Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire are celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2016 from 14 – 18 March.

The annual awareness week is coordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and designed to showcase apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications whilst getting real life work experience and being paid for it. Available in 170 different industries from hair and beauty to aerospace engineering, apprenticeships have been making an impact on local businesses for hundreds of years. Click here to read stories from some of the area’s current apprentices.

A number of the town’s business leaders and figureheads started their careers as apprentices, including some of the UK’s biggest and best known business leaders and personalities– Michael Caine (not a lot of people know that), John Frieda, Jamie Oliver, Alexander McQueen and Sir Alex Ferguson were all former apprentices who are now leading in their respective fields.

Closer to home, Chesterfield Borough Council’s Leader Cllr John Burrows began his career as an apprentice with the National Coal Board, as did Stuart Cutforth, Principal and Chief Executive of Chesterfield College Group who did an electrical engineering apprenticeship.

Hailing from the mining village of Staveley, university and a teaching career was not even considered for Stuart Cutforth as a 16 year old school leaver in 1970. He followed in both his father’s and brother’s footsteps and spent the next eight years working at Westhorpe Colliery in Killamarsh as an electrical engineer.

He left the mining industry in 1978 after completing a degree in electrical and electronic engineering and having worked his way up to Chargeman Electrician, a modern day equivalent of an electrical engineer, during his period with the National Coal Board.

His entered the further education sector in 1979 and has since had a career in it spanning 37 years and eight different colleges. In 2014 he returned ‘home’ to take up the role at Chesterfield College where he is responsible for the future of over 4000 apprentices.

Peter Swallow, Chair of Destination Chesterfield and Managing Director of Bolsterstone, the developer behind the £300million Chesterfield Waterside scheme, commented: “I am a huge advocate of apprenticeships – they are vital to the economy, particularly Chesterfield’s, where young people are the future life blood of many of the SME businesses within the town.”

A number of local former apprentices are making waves nationally, including Marcus Leverton, director of Leverton UK, and the youngest ever person to become a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) in 2014 and Liz Fisher, Head of Tax at Mitchells Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, who last year scooped top honours in a national Chartered Institute of Taxation exam. She beat more than 1000 candidates to gain the highest marks and was awarded the prestigious Ronald Ison Medal and the CCH Prize for the highest distinction mark awarded in the UK.

Liz’s original plans on leaving sixth form were to continue to university and undertake an English Literature degree. Breaking the news that she was turning down her university place in favour of beginning a workplace training scheme was not welcomed by everyone. She said: “The head of sixth form at my school said that it was the worst decision I’d ever make, but he was wrong, I have no regrets about leaving education and taking up a workplace traineeship, not for a second. It was definitely the right thing for me to do. I don’t regret it for a second.”

Marcus Leverton added: “Becoming a Fellow of the CIOB was the proudest moment for me. I think that my apprenticeship was definitely a contributing factor to this as I was able to get professionally qualified a lot more quickly than most other people in my trade.”

With a generation of skilled workers set to retire in the next 10 years and no obvious way to replace them, apprentices are being seen as keen to addressing the severe shortage of skilled workers across the construction, engineering and manufacturing industries.

Struggling to recruit skilled staff and faced with an ageing workforce, United Cast Bar, based in Chesterfield, instigated an apprenticeship programme in 2015. The business currently has three apprentices and will recruit a further apprentice in 2016.

Managing Director James Brand explains: “With our apprenticeship programme we are taking a medium to long-term view to address the issue of recruiting skilled staff. A number of our skilled workforce will retire in a few years and we are training apprentices now to replace their roles. The beauty of having apprentices is that we are able to handpick their studying and tailor their learning to our business’ needs and ensure they become rounded individuals and have a long-term career with United Cast Bar. Although we are a foundry, we have roles right across the spectrum from maintenance and machinery to sales and admin.”

The ability to experience the many different roles within a business as part of the apprenticeship programme enabled Marcus Leverton to decide on the area he wanted to specialise in. He explains: “It was through doing an apprenticeship and shadowing skilled members of all different trades that I realised being in the construction industry was the right career for me. I particularly found the project management and computer design side of the business really interesting so I decided to specialise in this area of the business.”

“As I say to my 15 year old niece, do something you really enjoy and feel passionate about because in reality, you’ll be working for a really long time, and you don’t want to be stuck doing something you don’t like for the next 60 years.”

As well as Chesterfield College, Chesterfield has a wealth of apprenticeship and training providers including NLT Training Services which specialises in the engineering sector, East Midlands Chamber and Slic Training.

Study into the benefits of HS2 for Chesterfield approved

A £300,000 grant through the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership will aid feasibility studies looking at proposed HS2 sites in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and how they can best benefit the local economy.

Phase Two of the planned national high speed railway, HS2, will create a track running up from the West Midlands, before splitting into western (towards the North-West) and eastern lines. The eastern line will pass through the D2N2 area; with a proposed East Midlands ‘hub’ at Toton and a major maintenance depot at Staveley, near Chesterfield, before the track continues to Sheffield and the North-East.

The Phase Two route is due to be confirmed by Government this autumn (2016). Trains would not operate on it until 2033 at the earliest, on the current project timetable.

D2N2 has approved funding for feasibility studies looking at both the Toton and Staveley HS2 plans, to see how the maximum economic benefit could be gained for the area from this national rail project.

A £45,000 grant will fund research into the Staveley maintenance depot; which will be responsible for maintaining tracks, bridges, tunnels, signalling and overhead power supply for HS2’s entire eastern line (Birmingham to Leeds). It’s estimated the site could support around 540 jobs directly and a further 700 indirectly, through supply chains.

The work (consultants for which have yet to be selected) will:

  • help develop the wider HS2 masterplan, particularly its wider regeneration ambitions;
  • identify the road links which the depot will need to connect it to the local area;
  • alongside education providers, promote the case for a local rail training facility to act as a secondary site linked to the proposed HS2 College campuses at Birmingham and Doncaster;
  • increase awareness among north-east Derbyshire businesses of the opportunities HS2 represents.

The remaining D2N2 study funding will be used to look into the feasibility of creating road and tram links, which would connect the proposed East Midlands hub at Toton with other important sites, to provide a more integrated transport network for passengers. This will include:

  • the feasibility of NET tram extensions to Toton’s HS2 station and beyond (study to be led by Nottingham City Council’s NET team);
  • updating of the traffic model for the hub area (to be led by Highways England);
  • a study looking into tram-train links (to be led by Network Rail and Nottingham City Council’s NET team).

David Ralph, Chief Executive of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “Our IIB board members set aside funds for feasibility studies some time ago, realising that where there is a chance for significant economic gain, investment in further study would be needed.

“The HS2 project represents an enormous opportunity for the D2N2 LEP area. We want to make sure we’ve investigated any practical means of taking full advantage of that, to grow the economy and create jobs.”

In his Comprehensive Spending Review last November (2015), Chancellor George Osborne awarded £1.25million to the D2N2 LEP, to develop a growth strategy for the proposed HS2 hub at Toton. In his previous July Budget, the Chancellor had agreed £5million to develop Midlands Connect – the cross-region co-operation between Midlands’ LEPs, local authorities and businesses – to integrate the region’s transport networks, which will also include work on HS2 development.

Local specialist appointed to senior role at Mitchells

FCCA Chartered Accountant and motor trade specialist, Rob Bray has joined the team at Chesterfield-based Mitchells Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers.

Rob (31) from Walton in Chesterfield, is the latest in a series of senior appointments to join Mitchells following its business growth over the last 12 months.

He joins from a local accountancy firm and brings considerable experience in the motor trade to his new senior corporate manager role. He has both worked directly in the motor industry himself as well as advising garages and dealerships, on finance, industry regulations and commission structures.

In addition to the motor trade, Rob brings extensive knowledge of business within the local area having worked closely with businesses throughout Chesterfield, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire for more than 10 years.

He commented: “I am delighted to join the team at Mitchells. The firm has excellent relationships with the big finance houses, which is critical for motor traders and businesses looking to grow. Cars are my passion, so I am particularly pleased that I will be working so closely with existing and new motor trade clients, as well as those across the board, helping them operate more efficiently and competitively.”

Securing the best devolution deal for Chesterfield and Derbyshire

Chesterfield Borough Council has voted to apply to join a devolution deal with Sheffield City Region that could bring millions of pounds and hundreds of job opportunities to Chesterfield and Derbyshire.

The devolution deal will see powers and funding held by ministers and civil servants in London – on issues such as housing, skills and training, business support and transport – transferred down to a local level.

At a special council meeting held on Thursday 3rd March, councillors confirmed that entering a deal will mean absolutely no changes to Chesterfield’s geographical boundaries with the town remaining firmly part of Derbyshire. Those councillors will also continue to control the running of all the services Chesterfield Borough Council is currently responsible for.

The additional devolved powers will be managed by a combined authority, which is made up of a group of councils, which will be led by an elected mayor. Chesterfield is applying for an equal seat at the table of the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority alongside Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster councils. This builds on the strong relationships that have already delivered significant investment in Chesterfield from the Sheffield City Region.

The decision by Chesterfield’s councillors starts a process that will include a full period of public consultation – likely to be in late spring or early summer – ahead of the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government making a decision, anticipated to be in the autumn.

Councillor John Burrows, leader of Chesterfield Borough Council, said: “I’m Chesterfield born and bred. If you cut me open I would have Chesterfield written on one side and Derbyshire on the other.

“So from day one I have been very clear that this is not about us moving anywhere as some people have claimed. Chesterfield is a Derbyshire town and will always be a Derbyshire town. Changing that has never been on the agenda and it never will be.

“This decision has been about what is going to be best for our economy and will most benefit our residents and businesses.

“It’s about creating jobs opportunities for young people who tell me they are desperately struggling to find work. It is about supporting the Chesterfield businesses who tell me that they want to expand but need staff with the right skills to do so.

“And it’s about giving our town an equal say at a table where £900 million is being handed out over the next 30 years.”

Three other Derbyshire councils – Bolsover, North East Derbyshire and Derbyshire Dales district councils – are applying to join the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority as non-constituent members.

They have also decided to be full members of a similar North Midlands Combined Authority formed of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire councils, Derby City, Derbyshire County Council and around half of the Derbyshire district and borough councils.

Chesterfield Borough Council has also decided to apply to become a non-constituent member of the North Midlands Combined Authority.

This partnership is currently negotiating with government for a devolution deal that would also see powers come down from Government to be managed by a combined authority led by an elected mayor.

Councillor Burrows added: “I am in the unique position of being the only council leader to have been involved in negotiating devolution deals for both the North Midlands and Sheffield City Region areas.

“I’ve read every document on the subject and sat in the meetings here and in London. So I’ve heard every argument for and against both devolution deals and in all that time I’ve been looking for what is best for Chesterfield and Chesterfield alone.

“After hearing all the issues at the debate I came to a clear conclusion that this deal is in the best interests of Chesterfield. That view was shared overwhelmingly by councillors of all the three political parties represented on the council, who decided this is the deal we should put out to public consultation.

“What is on offer is so great that it would be reckless and gambling on the town’s future to walk away and not seek any devolution powers.”

Residents can view the report which has all the details considered by councillors at the meeting by visiting and clicking on the devolution button at the bottom of the page. Paper copies can be seen at Chesterfield Town Hall.

Amber Plastics Completes Management Buy Out

Chesterfield-based manufacturer Amber Plastics has completed a Management Buy Out led by Tony Bunting for an undisclosed sum, which has secured 40 jobs at the Sheepbridge manufacturing facility.

Funding to support the deal has been provided by RBS Invoice Finance and Royal Bank of Scotland and was overseen by Chesterfield-based Mitchells Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers and BRM Solicitors.

Tim Leeman, partner at Mitchells Chartered Accounts and Business Advisers said: “It is particularly pleasing that the MBO has been wholly managed by Chesterfield-based organisations, showing that the town has the skills and resources to successfully complete deals of this size.”

Established in 1978, Amber Plastics is one of Europe’s leading rotational moulders. Located on Broombank Road on Chesterfield Industrial Estate the business employs 40 staff. Tony Bunting has purchased the business from Derrick Round who will continue to work with the business in a consultative role. Tony Bunting originally joined the business in 1987 as a machine operator progressing to the role of General Manager three years prior to the MBO.

Amber Plastics has enjoyed significant growth in recent years, securing contracts in the domestic and overseas motorhome, health and construction markets. Tony Bunting is focused on driving growth further and has put in place a three-year plan which will see staff numbers increase by more than 25%.

A team of Chesterfield-based advisors and funders have supported the deal.  RBS Invoice Finance represented by Kevin Burrows has provided a working capital facility which has released funds to assist the purchase of the business. This will also support ongoing cash flow requirements and the firm’s future growth strategy. The Royal Bank of Scotland’s banking team led by Simon Bellamy has also secured the day to day banking needs of the company. Tim Leeman from Mitchells Accountants and Business Advisers and Sarah Rowland from BRM Solicitors also advised on the completion of this transaction.

Tony Bunting, Managing Director of Amber Plastics, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to secure all jobs within the company as part of the purchase. Having managed the business on the ground since 2013 as General Manager, as well as worked alongside many of the team over the last 29 years, I know Amber Plastics is a strong position. It is both successful and profitable. Through the funding we have in place with RBS together with the team of advisers at Mitchells, the business is now committed to growing production to pre-2008 levels and significantly increasing the workforce over the next three years.”

Tim Leeman added: “As Tony has been effectively running the business for three years he was the perfect purchaser. Together we were able to provide detailed information to enable RBS Invoice Finance to make a funding decision. It has been a seamless change of ownership and one that sees the business remaining owner-managed.

Kevin Burrows, Commercial Business Development Manager at RBS Invoice Finance said: “We are delighted to support Tony with the successful completion of the MBO and support a local business. Tony has been part of Amber Plastics for a number of years and played a key role in the management team’s recent growth strategy.  He is committed to continuing the firm’s success and building the reputation of Amber Plastics across the UK. I am delighted to support them and work alongside a team of Chesterfield advisors on the deal. In particular I worked very closely with Mitchells and together we recognised an appropriate funding structure which would suit Tony the best. The working capital facility in place has reduced the need for additional debt funding and provided a flexible facility that will support his future growth plans.”

Sarah Rowland, Head of Company Commercial at BRM Solicitors said: “Amber Plastics have been a BRM client for many years. My colleague Anna Cattee and I were pleased to advise them in this deal, and wish the company a successful future.”
