East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Economic Development Service has revamped its web page and now has presence on social media, with the aim of supporting the growth of business.

The service’s account @ER_Business already has over 200 followers and provides information about a wide range of subjects, including employment and skills opportunities with some of the region’s big companies.

Councillor Jane Evison, cabinet portfolio holder for economic investment and tourism at the council, said: “Promoting the East Riding economy is one of the council’s top priorities.

“By ensuring that all the information a business could need is available online and that a point of contact for advice identified, we can help support new and existing businesses to flourish.”

The East Riding Business Investment & Tourism Service also has a Facebook page.
