When Elizabeth came to Jobs & Business Glasgow looking for support to get a job, little did she know that her hobby was about to be developed into a successful business.


As part of Jobs & Business Glasgow’s personal development training, she undertook an assertiveness course which helped her to improve her confidence and identify her key skills. From this, it was discovered that she was a keen crafts maker with talent in card making and jewellery design. Elizabeth was referred to an experienced business adviser who supported her to create a business plan, identify market research and undertake further business training workshops. In addition she gained access to funding that enabled her to set up her business. With the support of Jobs & Business Glasgow, Elizabeth has turned her hobby into a successful business.

“The staff at Jobs & Business Glasgow were very supportive and friendly. It didn’t matter how silly my question seemed, I was reassured, any ideas were talked through and implemented in my business plan.”
