'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

Wilfred Mitchell joined FSB in 1994 and was elected to the position of Non Operational Director in March 2015. He has previously held a number of positions at both branch and regional level as well as being a National Councillor, National Policy Vice-Chairman and currently is the Policy Chairman for Northern Ireland.
Wilfred has worked hard to build good working relationships with all political parties since the Northern Ireland Assembly’s inception. This has been crucial in helping to deliver positive benefits for small businesses, such as Small Business Rates Relief, devolution of corporation tax setting powers to Northern Ireland and the simplified Workplace Disputes Resolution process. He believes small businesses are at the core of the local economy; in Northern Ireland, they account for 99.9% of all businesses. It is these firms that will drive forward economic recovery and FSB will continue to lobby and advise on the policies and legislation required to achieve this.
He also has a great deal of experience running his own successful business – more than 25 years ago he set up a specialist trout hatchery and represented the business on UTV’s Head Start Business Competition and was successful in winning the County Heat and the Ulster Bank Award.
Wilfred has also served as a Governor on the N.I. BBC Council, for five years he was Chairman of an Agriculture Association and also held the position of Chairman of a tourism association. He was appointed to the N.I. Rural Development Council, a position he held for many years and he was also appointed a Planning Appeals Commissioner by the N.I. Secretary of State.
In 1996 he was awarded the OBE for services to the Rural Community. Currently he is Chief Executive of a Specialist Residential F.E. College and a Panel member of Industrial Tribunals. Recently he was awarded the status of Visiting Professor to Ulster Business School at Ulster University.
His extensive experience of community issues, coupled with his business experience, mean he is ideally placed to represent FSB in Northern Ireland as Non Operational Director to help drive forward FSB’s modernisation programme.
