  • Business Matters: Businesses struggle to find right staff but don’t think to train

    Recent research shows that employers are still struggling to find the right kind of people to work with, with 70 per cent of companies saying that they struggle to find the right individuals to fill vacancies.

    When asked why they struggled to find the right people 67 per cent said the candidates did not have the correct skills for the job, while nearly half  said they did not have the work ethic they were looking for. Interestingly even though 55 per cent of respondents said that there was a skills shortage in their industry, only 28 percent had taken on an apprentice.

    Although the apprenticeship scheme was established in the UK over 50 years ago, it seems that for some SME business owners, taking on an apprentice isn’t an option.

    Lyndon Wood, CEO and founder of, said: “Our findings show that despite many small businesses in the UK struggling to find the right skills for their companies they are still reluctant to take on apprentices.

    “Apprenticeship schemes aren’t just for building trades or hairdressers, these days apprentices can be in any sector. It is a great scheme that can help upskill your workforce and teach them about your business and industry.”

  • Business Matters: Reuben Singh Launches Scholarship for business leaders of tomorrow

    Successful business leader and entrepreneur, Reuben Singh, is offering a helping hand to the start up tycoons of tomorrow.

    The Manchester-based businessman is launching a scholarship fund for students wishing to study at UK universities.

    Singh, who himself was an entrepreneur from an early age, is pursuing his passion for supporting young entrepreneurs and a belief that business education in the UK should be anchored in real-world requirements and scenarios.

    The scholarship will provide students with up to £9,000 in funding for tuition fees for the 2016/2017 academic year, and will give them the opportunity to continue their studies whilst running their successful enterprise.

    Applicants must be UK resident undergraduates with a confirmed place at university for the 2016/17 academic year. They can be anything from fledgling eBay entrepreneurs, to the founders of social enterprise start-ups, or even those involved in business activities linked to schools, social groups or community causes.

    Young business people who have already shown initiative in creating their own business venture will be required to demonstrate the nature of business, why they set it up, what they achieved and the lessons they have learned to date.

    Hopefuls can enter the scheme by filling out an application form and submitting an essay of no more than 2,500 words, addressing the following questions:
    What does the future of business look like to you?
    What does entrepreneurship mean to you?

    Identify the next big domestic or international market and discuss why you feel this is such a big opportunity

    Entries should be submitted to, by 31st May 2016.

    They will also need to provide evidence of their entrepreneurial activities to date, including examples of ventures or endeavors they have undertaken.

    Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview with the Reuben Singh Scholarship panel.

    Reuben Singh, CEO of the UK’s most trusted call answering service, alldayPA, said: “I know myself what it is like to have been in business from a young age, and my experiences setting up from scratch have shaped my understanding of the ever-changing business world. It is important to pass on this knowledge and experience to the next generation of entrepreneurs, and one of the ways this can be done is through the Reuben Singh Scholarship Programme.

    “I was privileged to have support behind me as a result of my parents’ own hard work in their business, and financial capabilities at the start of my business career – this is something I am so grateful for. I believe it is now my turn to do this not only for my children, but for a number of deserving students wishing to further their business careers.

    “The next generation of entrepreneurs needs both academic qualifications and real world experiences from both business and first-hand interpersonal interaction. The world is now a global village and it is important that tomorrow’s business leaders embrace the skills and business opportunities available to them from all over the world.”

    Entry for the Reuben Singh Scholarship Programme will open on 5th October 2015.

  • Business Matters: Nationwide set to use automation to boost productivity

    Prof Harrick Vin, VP & Chief Scientist, Tata Consultancy Services, said: “The digital revolution has created many opportunities for businesses like Nationwide, but it also brings challenges, perhaps the most significant of which is the rapidly increasing complexity of IT. New digital products for customers, combined with the vast amounts of data that today’s organisations have to process, can make it difficult to make fast, informed decisions.”

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.
