Welcome to the Somerset Chamber of Commerce

Neil Murphy

The Skills agenda is a key topic in the August issue of the Somerset Business Magazine. Neil Murphy highlights the impending skills issues for the county, which has an aging population and a reducing pool of working age people. Following the recent launch of the Chamber’s ‘Bridging the Gap’ initiative, he outlines the importance of highlighting options such as apprenticeships and traineeships to students, to help keep more of our young talent in Somerset.

Other skills-related topics in this month’s issue include information about a trailblazing British Chambers project that aims to get more girls studying STEM subjects, and read how 15 year old Georgia Thompson got on during her week of work experience with the Somerset Chamber.

The Chancellor’s Summer Budget and the recently issued business-led Cole Commission review on exports are also covered, plus find out how Google’s new rules could be having a negative impact on your website’s search traffic.

Somerset Chamber represents and works collaboratively with the Somerset business community to encourage strong, sustainable and creative alliances that promote members’ businesses, raise the profile of the county, and help to lobby for greater influence for Somerset at all levels of government.
