A ROTHERHAM man is flying high after setting up his own aircraft valeting business – thanks to backing from the Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce.
Edward Birks was previously unemployed, before realising a gap in the market for ‘high-quality aircraft valeters’.
He was guided through the process of setting up his business through the Regional Enterprise Programme, obtaining financial backing and business planning.
Edward said: “I spoke to the Jobcentre and they referred me on to the Chamber.
“I met with Jav Khan and the advice he has given me has been excellent.
“I would encourage anyone needing business help to get in touch with the Chamber, whose advice is free.”
