Corporate offers to help your business grow
Across the country some 2,000 people a month are moving off benefits and into their own business. The self-employed come in many shapes and sizes. Some are entrepreneurs, driven by high-growth ambitions & innovation but many are sole-traders simply looking to ‘make their own jobs’ and create their own earning and profits. Over the past five years the biggest increases in employment have been in SELF employment and 4.5million people across the country are happy to have become ‘their own boss’.
Starting up your own business is a very real alternative to conventional employment or even unemployment. Often people do not consider starting up in business because they believe it’s too difficult, too expensive, they don’t know where to start and they don’t know what support is available to them. We can help. We can show you how to start a business and provide everything you need to start and grow your own venture and your self employed career.
