Susan Hawkins, Manager at Business Gateway Edinburgh introduces the support they offer to micro-businesses, specifically employment. Susan's presentation at Taking On An Intern: How To Clone Yourself and Grow Your Craft Business, covered their partnership with Joined Up for Business (joinedupforjobs.org.uk/employers/joined-up-for-business/) which advises micro-businesses in Edinburgh wanting to grow their businesses, including taking on employees.
Taking On An Intern: How to Clone Yourself and Grow Your Craft Business was an event for professional craftspeople and makers wanting to explore where to start with taking on an intern or apprentice. It was the first in a short series of events on the topic. The event was delivered in partnership with Business Gateway Edinburgh (bgateway.com/local-offices/edinburgh), in Edinburgh in February 2015.
