Tailored Support

Rochdale is a great place for business, and part of the reason for this is the tailored support which the RDA offers to every business in the Borough.

The RDA is not a one-size-fits-all service. Our vastly experienced team of business professionals get to know your organisation in detail so that we can give you exactly the right support you need to succeed.

Commercial property in Rochdale

If you’re looking for commercial units to let in Rochdale, we can help. Rochdale is home to some of the North West’s best-performing business parks, including highly regarded facilities at Kingsway, Stakehill and South Heywood, all within easy reach of the motorway network. In addition, we offer first-class office space, both in our rejuvenated town centre and further afield. We can recommend cost-effective premises for both start-ups and established businesses.


Training and recruitment

After helping you find the property you need, we can help you find the right staff too. That goes for companies relocating to the Borough, new business startups and established businesses. Whatever your status, we can help you access excellent training and recruitment partners.

We have long-established links with organisations like Hopwood Hall College, one of the best performing Further Education colleges in the region, and the highly rated Rochdale Training Association. We offer guidance on apprenticeships and choosing the right apprenticeship provider for you.

We also offer advice on recruitment using Employment Links, the Council’s free service. We help you match your needs with the right people from the region’s large, skilled and cost-effective labour pool.

Business networks

Some of the best business advice comes from those already prospering in the town. Another part of the RDA’s role is to put you in touch with the business contacts and networks that can help you succeed.

To take one example, the RDA facilitates the Rochdale Ambassadors, a business group that comes together for mutual support and advice and to spread the word about Rochdale as a thriving centre for business.

And Rochdale really is a great place for business. The RDA’s job is to make sure the companies that invest in our town get all the support they need.
