It was great to open the Fire Training Centre at Viking Recruitment in Dover. Viking is an incredible expanding business and is creating more jobs and money in Dover. They are constructing a new, state of the art maritime training and conference facility. Included in the Maritime Skills Academy is a new specialist fire fighting centre. This will meet increased demand for training and development. It was really encouraging to see how their new development is boosting training and new careers in our area.
Viking recently secured a £1.3 million loan from the East Kent Expansion Fund. This is part of the Government's regional growth fund to help small businesses. This money is helping Viking to expand and create jobs and money in our corner of Kent. We need to do everything we can to help successful businesses like Viking to get the funding they need to grow and boost our economy.
