EDP are looking to work with businesses local to Exeter to help them get people into work who have been accessing our Hidden Gems project.
Hidden Gems is a project for people who are out of work which supports them towards and into paid employment. Those taking part learn how to design, make and sell jewellery and other handcrafted products from recycled and reclaimed metals. Participants also undertake the Social Enterprise Qualification developed by the Real Ideas Organisation. You can find out more about the project on our Hidden Gems webpage and also by reading this recent article from the Western Morning News Westcountry Life supplement.
EDP are looking for businesses local to Exeter who would be interested in providing work placements and experience to those accessing our project. If you are interested please contact Charlotte Burrows, EDP’s Director of Innovation and Growth, by emailing [email protected].
