Jay Grant, 24, who has supported international trade with East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, Nottingham, and Doncaster Chamber of Commerce, has joined  ChamberCustoms, led by Ioanna Orfanidi, which helps UK exporters complete customs declarations, now needed for UK trade with EU countries.

He says: “I’ve heard a lot of great things about Chamber International and am excited to be here and able to add value to such an important service.”

Jay Grant was previously a semi-professional footballer, playing as a winger, or striker, for Grantham Town FC and Harrowby United FC in the United Counties League, before joining the chamber network.

Since Brexit, about 202,081 UK businesses must now complete customs declarations and understand tariff classification numbers, customs valuation, and customs procedures if they previously exported only to the EU when UK membership meant the declarations were not needed.

Chamber International director, Tim Bailey says: “Britain’s departure from the EU has created more bureaucracy, as well as global opportunities, and we are delighted to welcome Jay to our Chamber Customs team so UK businesses can continue to benefit from trading with the EU.” 

Chamber International, which has offices in Bradford and London, helps hundreds of new and experienced exporters throughout the UK with a wide range of specialist services to make exporting easier and more cost effective.
