East Cambridgeshire District Council
East Cambridgeshire District Council is proud to be headline partner of the 2017 Business Awards and sponsor the Innovation Award
EEC is East Cambridgeshire District Council’s Economic Development team, which provides business support, information and advice to local companies, while working hard to attract important inward investment to the area. EEC is therefore a perfect partner to support this year’s event.
The team operates two business centres, one in Ely and another in Littleport, which serve as starter offices for small and growing businesses. The e-space centres provide local companies with a base from which to develop until they are able to buy or rent their own premises elsewhere in the district. In addition, advice is always on hand to e-space tenants from the EEC team based at the respective locations.
The District Council also provides ongoing support to employers looking to take on apprentices. As was the case last year, in 2016, they will be supporting selected local firms with top-up grants, which can be put towards training, equipment or apprentice salary costs.
With an extensive portfolio of expertise and contacts, and working with businesses in a multitude of sectors, EEC takes great pleasure in providing support across a variety of business areas. The team views no enquiry as too small, or project too large.
As headline partners of the Ely Standard Business Awards, EEC and the District Council hopes to further promote the important work it does to an even larger audience, spreading the message that East Cambridgeshire is a great place to do business.
Entries from companies wishing to be considered for an award must be submitted by the 21st July 2016. EEC encourages as many local businesses as possible to get involved, and is looking forward to an enjoyable evening that will highlight the bright and thriving business community within East Cambridgeshire.
