Acorn Training expands in Burton

Burton-based commercial property agents, Rushton Hickman Ltd, has let 2,145 sq ft (199.3 sq m) of prime ground floor office space to Acorn Training as part of their business expansion program.

Milton House, on Worthington Way, in Burton town centre, is prominently located and was formerly occupied by The Burton Mail for a number of years.

National training provider, Acorn Training, confirms this latest office launch adds to the company’s footprint across the Midlands, comprising offices in Coalville, Chesterfield, Hinckley, Daventry, Loughborough and headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent.

The office will serve as a hub of support for the community where the Acorn Training team will deliver their employability, skills, training and youth service work. Around 20 employees will be based from the office.

Gareth Saldanha-Fallows, Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our footprint to Burton, bringing our strong core values and inclusive ethos to provide opportunity to individuals from all backgrounds.

“The expansion is an important step towards strengthening the delivery of our services across the Midlands and growing our success to help more people secure sustainable employment. The new office will serve as a welcoming and safe space to give the community access to information, advice and guidance for life and work.

“As the country recovers from the effects of the pandemic, Acorn Training will play a vital part in boosting the local economy in Burton and the surrounding area and continue to have a positive impact on the lives of the individuals and communities that we serve.”

Simon Walker (Rushton Hickman agent) said: “I carried out viewings with Gareth on several potential locations in the town centre. Given Acorn’s brief, it was evident the property on Worthington way (Milton House), was ideally placed to tick most, if not all the boxes on the search criteria requirements, particularly as it had operated as a Learn Direct Training Centre several years ago. This is an excellent opportunity and ideal location for Acorn Training to open their new Burton Office and we wish them every success in their new venture.”

Graham Bancroft, director at Rushton Hickman, added: “This is a fantastic letting and shows that despite the previous work from home rhetoric, there is now a real push from businesses to get people back into the office. The services offered by Acorn Training will also help train both young people and adults and we wish them all the best in their new surroundings.”
