Recruitment firm opens Queensferry office with support from Deeside street enhancement scheme
A training and recruitment company has opened in Queensferry, with the help of
grant support from Flintshire County Council.
The Council has provided grant support for building works for Enbarr
Recruitment and Training, as part of its Deeside street frontage enhancement
grant scheme. The scheme is funded by the Welsh Government Vibrant and Viable
Places programme which allocates money to regenerate counties across Wales.
The scheme provides grants for property owners and tenants to refurbish shop
fronts and commercial building frontages as an important step towards enhancing
the local shopping and trading experience in the Deeside town centres.
The grant support received by Enbarr Recruitment and Training has enabled them
to carry out a number of improvement works, including new windows to improve
the street frontage, new signs, updating and improving the guttering, painting
the building and repairing the brick work.
Grants to improve the external appearance of shops and commercial premises in
the town centres of Connah’s Quay, Garden City, Shotton and Queensferry are
still available through the County Council.
Councillor Derek Butler, Cabinet Member for Economic Development said:
“I would like to congratulate Enbarr Recruitment and Training and wish them
every success with their venture, which is bringing the former NatWest bank
building back into productive use as a training and recruitment office. The
Vibrant and Viable Places programme recognises the important role that town
centres and shopping areas play in the life of Flintshire. An attractive street
which is well designed and well managed can improve the vibrancy and viability
of Deeside’s town centres and encourage other investment. We would welcome the
opportunity to support the development of other businesses in the area.
Vicki Roskams, Owner of Enbarr Recruitment and Training, said:
“We are delighted to announce the opening of our new office in Queensferry,
with the creation of jobs and the opportunity to invest in what is a fantastic
Our organisation has been set up with the sole purpose of helping people in
the local area to gain training and confidence to allow them to reach their
full potential in roles and positions which are long term solutions and not
short term stop gaps.
This venture has been made possible through partnership working with the
Council. The Vibrant and Viable Places initiative presents wonderful
possibilities and I would encourage others to find out more about it, to help
uplift the whole look of the street and the local area, which also helps people
to feel good about where they live. I was well supported by Flintshire County
Council through the process and would urge other businesses to take advantage
of the support provided.
A maximum grant of up to £15,000 per property is available, with the grant
funding available of up to 50 per cent of the total cost of the improvements.
