Government Cash Leads to Chesterfield Jobs

A Chesterfield company that is employing at least 12 people every week has been hailed a ‘huge success’ by jobs campaigner Toby Perkins, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Chesterfield

Toby, who has put new jobs for Chesterfield at the heart of his campaign, arranged for Labour’s Minister of State for Business, Rosie Winterton MP, to see the Insurance firm’s Chesterfield offices which employ around 270 people.

CPP moved into their offices on Future Walk after a £1.75M grant from the Government funded East Midlands Development Agency. The firm are employing apprentices at their call centre and showed Toby and Rosie their hi tech offices that also boast a gym and relaxation room.

After the tour members of staff who work on both a full time and part time basis at the firm met with the Labour duo to explain the secret of CPP’s success.

Toby Perkins said: “CPP is a great example of marrying the best of business, hard work and government investment. From the £1.7 Million investment by the government over 270 people have found work, and 65% of the staff are under 30. At a time of economic difficulties this shows the value of Labour’s approach to employment and business and why cuts in public spending would have drastic and detrimental effects on thousands of people who don’t see their roles as being relevant to public funding at all.”
