We're far more than just a workspace at the Lighthouse. We're a community of people working for themselves, who want to collaborate and help each other to grow and succeed. We know that there's so much talent here in the Sid Valley, but it’s often hidden from view. We buy local and we want to encourage others to do the same, so please check out our members to find people you can to work with or buy from.

Business Development Manager

I currently run the business development side of our amazing app Imployable. We launch on 18th February


I have worked as a PGA Golf Professional for the last 9 years, I was then offered to become BDM for Imployable. We are a new app which is going to change the face of the recruitment industry. We have just won the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur of the Year Spirit Award, we have developed contracts with the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Defence, Department for Work and Pensions and the Department for Education. We have also signed up SODEXO, Renault Formula 1, Virgin, Sir Robert McAlpine to name but a few. We also work with training providers to make sure people are re-trained to enter a career that they are suited to and enjoy, and charities, in order to get people access to experience to again help them find work.
