BudeWorks

Bude Works is a project that brings together jobseekers, employers, budding entrepreneurs and a range of support services to help more people in the area to get into work, progress in work or start a new business. We engage with a broad range of people and businesses to overcome recruitment challenges and barriers to work in Bude, North Devon and many outlying rural communities. We work hard to understand factors such as transport, welfare reform, digital inclusion, health and wellbeing in our communities and what challenges and opportunities these bring for jobseekers and business. There are various initiatives within Cornwall and Devon to support Jobseekers and local employers – including training and events. Bude Works was established through Jobcentre Plus, funded by the DWP Flexible Support Fund and was supported by Inclusion Cornwall/Cornwall Works Hub.

From Sep 2015, the Budeworks project is supported by BudeBEAM, Bude Coastal Communities Team only.

Comments From Previous Networking Meetings

I find the Networking Meetings extremely helpful – it is invaluable to meet up with other local business people in an informal setting, catch up with what people are doing and meet new faces in the Bude Business Community. BudeWorks are tireless in its efforts to keep us informed of available funding, business opportunities and bringing speakers to Bude who we would surely miss otherwise. Thank you BudeWorks!

Networking in our fabulous community is a great way to find out about businesses, people, funding, events, new items, fundraisers, issues; need I go on? At every Bude Networking Meeting, I hear a snippet I have not heard about before that may be beneficial to businesses in Bude. Many are fund raising opportunities that a lot of the businesses in Bude could benefit from. What not to like? Free coffee and cake from the hosts, meeting old and new acquaintances, and learning more about our wonderful area and what’s available.

The Business Networking Meetings have allowed me to discover businesses in and around the Bude area which I otherwise wouldn’t have come across. As a result, they have allowed me to connect with businesses that were looking for something a little different in 3D visualisations or website designs, which is my specialism.  As I love producing 3D visuals, this was perfect for my business.
