Have your say

A financial planning company has created two jobs since moving to Barnsley from West Yorkshire.

QED Financial Associates is based at a newly built commercial centre in Penistone,

Director Wayne Harper said: “We identified Penistone as a location in which to expand because it has a large catchment area and a very active business community.

“Securing highly visible high street offices was very important and we’ve since employed two staff from the local community. Our aim is to continue building the business.

“We’ve relocated to the Barnsley borough in order to create jobs and grow and the support we’ve received from the Enterprising Barnsley coaches has been superb.”

Kevin Steel, business development manager at Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre, said: “We supported the company with a new website which coincided with the move and we’re pleased to be able to offer ongoing coaching and business development support. QED Financial Associates made a conscious decision to relocate to Penistone. The company has been able to access quality business support.”
