We really recognise the current gap for funded business support in Cornwall, and therefore this fully funded hire fits within our strategic vision to support the Cornish business community and her support will be complimentary and exclusive to our customers. Rebecca brings a wealth of business experience across a multitude of sectors and is dedicated to bridging the gap of advice and support.”
