Work and Live in Chesterfield

Work and Live in Chesterfield Campaign

Chesterfield Champions often highlight the importance of developing a skilled workforce. Destination Chesterfield will continue to promote opportunities to businesses to encourage them to develop existing staff and attract new talent.

The Made in Chesterfield initiative will continue in 2023, and Destination Chesterfield will continue to offer marketing support to Chesterfield Borough Council with skills activity.

Work will be carried out to develop a narrative to attract people to live in Chesterfield. Content and assets will be created alongside developing marketing campaigns, which will be included in the Destination Chesterfield Plan 2024 – 2027.

The changes in the way that people work, quality of life, and the affordability of Chesterfield, all provide an opportunity to think differently about attracting talent to live in the area.
