Our partners are organisations we invest in and work closely with - enabling us to forge strong connections with education and business sectors, to develop career opportunities for young people, and to tackle the UK STEM skills deficit. The team also enjoy supporting local charities that are closely linked with the values of our business.
Chemicals Northwest is an industry-led organisation working with chemistry-using industries in the North West. They are an established business network and actively promote this important regional sector. Their aim is to improve the industry’s sustainability, and to promote science and engineering-based skills in the region, to address future needs. We share a similar vision for the North West and regularly engage with members, as shown in CNW's Elements Winter 2018 magazine.
This independent, not for profit organisation represents the business community across the whole of West Cheshire and North Wales. Celebrating its centenary in 2021, the Chamber has a strategic vision to drive our regional economy forwards.
Their key priority aligns with ours: to develop a skilled and able workforce, allowing businesses and the regional and national economy to grow and thrive. Our businesses can only perform as well as the people that start, run and work in them.
Young Chamber is a new initiative for collages and schools, from the West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce. The scheme helps bridge the gap between businesses and the education sector. It enables educational institutions to tap into the knowledge, skills and experience that we, as a local business, can provide.
Co-founder Dan regularly speaks to STEM pupils and students across Cheshire and the North West, offering careers advice and learning about their vocational challenges along the way. We've been proud sponsors since September 2018 and look forward to an exciting 2020-2021 year of events where we can support young people in the region with their business aspirations.
We have partnered with Thornton Science Park to strengthen our mutual academic and industry connections. We are also working with the Science and Engineering Faculty and the Chester Business School, and are actively supporting graduates in both STEM and Business & Management related subjects. We regularly take on students for work-based learning experience.
As an alumnus of the University of Chester’s Business Research Institute, Hybrid Search’s Research Advisor, Dr. Henry Sidsaph, has cultivated these relationships along with creating a European database of companies in the petrochemicals sector.
An educational science centre and museum focussing on chemistry and its history, we love Catalyst and the incredible impact it has engaging and exciting children about science and other STEM subjects. Catalyst started as a client of ours when they asked us to conduct a search for their new Chief Executive Officer.
Since then we are proud to call it Hybrid Search’s designated charity, for any charitable fundraising we do. Because we want to invest in the change makers of the future.
"It's great to be able to forge mutually beneficial relationships with our regional community. Our region is unique in having a large amount of Industrial Science companies, therefore, the community relationships we have built with industry and academia help us support our international clients which intern enables us bring that international perspective back into the region. We can practice what we preach in terms of a local feel with a global reach."
