Ant Marketing Secure NPIF Investment
Ant Marketing will create up to 50 new jobs after securing investment from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF).
Following our Scottish Power contract win, we approached Finance For Enterprise to secure funds to strengthen our efforts in recruiting additional members of staff. Ant currently employs over 300 people in full time and part time positions, and we will be bringing around 50 more new jobs to Sheffield. We are pleased to announce that we were able to gain funding from the NPIF within just one week, allowing us to add 25 new members to our team immediately. In addition to this, 12 members of staff were awarded promotions and we are planning to recruit 25 more team members within the coming weeks.
The NPIF project is funded by the EU using finances taken from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme and the European Investment Bank.
Anthony Hinchliffe, Founder and CEO of Ant Marketing said:
“We have always built our reputation upon providing high levels of customer service, the result of a comprehensive training programme which all our staff undertake. Investments in staff, training and new equipment can place considerable pressure upon our cashflow – the lifeblood of any business, and so we called upon Finance For Enterprise to enable us to undertake the all-important preparation work, prior to the beginning of the Scottish Power contract.
“Finance For Enterprise were acutely aware of the time pressures we were facing, however, we were able to secure the finance we needed within just one week and as a result of the funding we’ve received, coupled with the success we’ve achieved to date, we’re looking to add more people to our workforce.”
