Recruitment is underway for a new service to help Bolton businesses.

All ten local authorities across Greater Manchester, including Bolton, have teamed up to set up a business compliance service

The project has secured funding of £503,728 from the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy via the Regulators’ Pioneer Fund.  

Ten new jobs will be created, five environmental health graduates/postgraduates and five regulatory compliance apprentice trainees.

Over the course of a two-year contract graduates and trainees will be supported to gain further qualifications whilst working alongside experienced and knowledgeable trading standards, environmental health, and licensing officers across Greater Manchester and helping businesses navigate complex legislation and regulations, crucial for their growth.  

This new project will provide a consistent and readily available business compliance service offering free training, support, and advice to local businesses across Greater Manchester.
