OPPORTUNITIES DON'T HAPPEN. YOU CREATE THEM.

WELCOME

 

 

Since being established, Corby Business Group has become one of the foremost information sources on Local Legislation, Planning & Environmental matters which have a direct effect on you and your business.

As a key part of our work with local government we have a Lobby Group which has access to local MP's, MEP's and Councillors to protect the interests of local business.

We are also proud to be part of Employment and Training Initiatives and as a group we can advise and assist, our target is to develop a labour pool of well trained, eager young people.
