Fine Gael TD for Dublin North Alan Farrell has said that the allocation of a Business Development Manager to the Balbriggan Enterprise and Training Centre is good news for community businesses, entrepreneurs and job creation in Balbriggan. This is part of the Jobs Action Plan set out by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD.
“Appointing a Business Development Manager to a Community Enterprise Centre in Balbriggan will drive business links and entrepreneurship on a community level, and ultimately create local employment.
“As part of the Government’s Jobs Action Plan, these allocations will create jobs in the community. Nationally, this scheme will grow up to 800 companies, creating up to 5000 jobs. In Balbriggan, there should be an increase from 68 to 82 the number of positions forecast from this announcement alone.
“The Business Development Manager will be responsible for managing the Enterprise Centre, facilitating the graduation of companies from the centre once their employment levels take off, manage cooperation with other business and training stakeholders, while collaborating with other enterprise centres in the area.
“County Enterprise Boards have a proven track record in supporting business and entrepreneurship within the community. I am confident that this will have a positive and significant impact on business development in Balbriggan, and I look forward to further proposals of a similar nature to be announced by Minister Bruton as part of the Government Jobs Action Plan”
