Cimteq has joined the Young Chamber sponsors. The Young Chamber Programme looks to bridge the skills gap, between education and the business sector. In a recent QES, results showed that 88% of businesses believed that most school leavers were not ready to start working; and 83% of respondents said that in the past six months they had struggled to fill a vacant position. Young Chamber provides a range of different ways in which the chamber can help schools and colleges tap into the knowledge, skills and experience that local businesses can provide students for them to succeed in the world of work.
Katy Harrison, Marketing Manager, Cimteq said: “We are delighted to be able to get involved in the Chamber of Commerce Young Chamber initiative. Established in 1998, Cimteq provides cable design and manufacturing software to the Wire and Cable Industry. We are the lead industry experts and produce all our software in house by our team of developers. We are looking forward to working with the West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce to provide support for schools and colleges within the region and getting involved in providing work placements, talks from our experts and offering apprenticeships in the future which in turn, will support us in recruiting the best candidates within our region”.
Debbie Bryce, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce, said; “It is a pleasure to have Cimteq join our growing list of sponsors for the Young Chamber programme and it was great to meet the Cimteq team yesterday, who will be involved with upcoming Young Chamber projects. Cimteq won our International Trade Award at our Recognition Awards last year and we are delighted for them to be involved with Chamber projects and hope to work closely with them again in the future.”
