Seren Skills Network moves to The Stables Business Park

A new enterprise has moved on the Stables Business Park at Rooksbridge in Somerset. Seren Skills Network provides training for the next generation of leaders, managers and entrepreneurs.

Set in a rural location in open countryside the park is located just off the A38 within a few minutes by car from two railway stations, Bristol International Airport and nationwide road links including J22 on the M5.

Emma said the firm needed a rural setting

“It’s the best place as we were looking to build a rural training academy,” said Seren’s HR and Quality Director Emma Wasike, “so we investigated the site as it is in the countryside. The business park is surrounded by fields and hedgerows that are teeming with flora and fauna. There are herons and buzzards, and the campus has its own meadows, landscaped gardens and a large pond. It’s absolutely the ideal spot for us.”

She said one of the attractions was that the park is within a short commute for the senior management team with members in nearby Berrow and Blagdon, something endorsed by her colleague Jason Lloyd, Seren’s Delivery and Resources Director.

He said: “We’re all local which is something close to our hearts, and being so close to the office means we also reduce our carbon footprint. It’s also a lovely setting with wildlife all around, there’s free unlimited parking and the internet and is super-fast. And if you get stressed at work you can look out of the window or go outside and sit in the gardens to relax.”

Patrick has experience with training apprentices in Australia

The park’s owner and manager Tom Dalley said the Stables Business Park’s sales pitch is ‘relax, you’re at work.’

“We’re delighted to welcome Seren here,” he said, “as we have a hugely diverse range of firms operating from the site. From the NFU to a country clothing firm and from a cleaning business to surveyors, people are drawn to the Stables Business Park for the high quality offices, location and rural setting.”

Paul is the financial director of Seren

The village of Rooksbridge has a general store and Post Office, pub and garage, plus within a short drive are supermarkets and a range of shops.
