Bespoke mentoring is being offered to businesses in the Ards & North Down Borough Council area

Ards & North Down Borough Council is providing hands-on specialist business support to micro and small enterprises (of less than 50 employees) through the Shine Programme.

The support can be used by you or individuals within your team and can be delivered onsite or virtually when required. The level of mentoring support will be assessed in relation to the potential your business has for job creation.

Programme details
The programme could be used to look at social media, finding good staff, looking at selling into new markets, new marketing material, selling skills / sales training / development or simply looking at finances, material costs, looking at a business plan or how to manage cashflow.

Essentially, the mentoring support will focus around business efficiencies, marketing, digital marketing, business strategy and operations.

Cost to attend the programme:

  • The programme is fully funded so it is completely free for businesses.
  • It will require time for mentoring at your premises or an alternative location, or virtually.
  • Time required to attend workshops (six half-day workshops per year at the Signal Centre - at this time workshops are being delivered digitally).
