Working in partnership to help local business
Stratford-on-Avon District Council has been working together with local landlord Gordon Bott to support local businesses in Southam.
In June Mr Bott sublet his business unit on Northfield Road, Southam to Tesco to carry out their recruitment process; a large number were interviewed, with the majority recruited locally.
The successful partnership continues as Christmas comes early for another local business as it expands its internet mail order company, Find Me A Gift.com, by moving from Kineton into the Unit in Southam allowing the business to expand during its busiest time of year. Find Me A Gift.com has seen orders rise by almost 100% since 2008 and is anticipating a further increase of 50% this year and is hiring 150 seasonal staff from the Southam.
