The Ilfracombe Works development team focus on career-based education and support for all ages alongside business and economical development. The team regularly meet with local businesses and through either events or our Annual Business Survey. Through these we can establish the needs of local businesses and help them work towards better, positive outcomes.

There is a great relationship between Ilfracombe Works and the Ilfracombe Academy which allows for educational events and schemes which both teach and encourage Ilfracombe’s next generation.

Ilfracombe Works Projects

A business survey is carried out annually and networking events are held to ensure a good connection with local businesses and to keep on top of any arising issues.

You’re Hired

You’re Hired is an annual event run by One Ilfracombe in conjunction with the Ilfracombe Academy. Local businesses hold a series of workshops which prepare students for working life and give them ideas and helpful tips on areas such as CV writing, transferable skills, first impressions and interview techniques.
