News: UK Steel Enterprise boosts SCR support with new hire


UK Steel Enterprise has announced the appointment of regional executive Alan Stanley who joins the company's growing team with immediate effect.

A subsidiary of Tata Steel, UK Steel Enterprise supports the economic regeneration of communities affected by changes in the steel industry and has helped over 6,000 organisations to date.

Focused on working with SMEs and providing funding of up to £1m to companies looking to grow and expand across the Sheffield City Region and Humber areas, Alan brings with him more than 28 years' experience within the finance industry.

His previous roles have included working for the Royal Bank of Scotland Group where he was focused on business development, and providing funding solutions to SMEs.

Alan (pictured, centre) said: "I am delighted to be joining the UKSE team at a time when they are increasing the number of companies they work with at pace with an increased level of finance available.

"I look forward to meeting existing clients, and working to support further SMEs to access the funding they need to drive their businesses forward and create more jobs."

Keith Williams, regional manager at UK Steel Enterprise Pictured, right), added: "Alan's appointment provides us with additional capacity to provide more finance to growing companies in the region and we are delighted to have secured someone with great experience across a range of sectors. Expanding the local team is part of our plan to be able to increase the number of companies that we can help. I'm sure Alan's expertise and commitment will help us achieve these goals.

"Any business that needs finance to grow or create jobs should get in touch. We can provide loans from £25,000 and investment finance up to £1m."

UK Steel Enterprise pledged £1.55m to support job creation following Tata Steel's latest restructure that saw almost 700 staff were made redundant within the Rotherham and Stocksbridge plants. Last year it launched the 40:40 challenge, marking its 40th anniversary, with a £40,000 pot open to schools and other youth organisations to work with students aged 18 or under.
