Wirral Chamber's Latest Recruit!

The objective of the Wirral Chamber of Commerce is to create a business environment stimulating growth, employment, and economic prosperity for both its members and Wirral alike. It achieves this through engagement so its members are aware about the support mechanisms available, so important for business growth.

Having worked closely for a number of years, Graham Maddrell, Wirral Chamber’s Marketing Manager, contacted Steve Wood with an opportunity for a Graduate Press and PR Officer to support and promote the Wirral Chamber across the borough. Having referred many of the Chamber members to Graduate to Merseyside, Graham is now experiencing the service directly himself.
