The Invest in Renfrewshire business team were drumming up interest last week with a visit to St James’ Business Centre in Linwood.
The business centre was recently converted and is home to fifty businesses, but keeps a link to its past, recently celebrating fifty years since the first Imp rolled off the production line at the Rootes Group’s purpose-built car plant in Linwood, Renfrewshire. Invest in Renfrewshire advisors visited the business tenants over two days, letting them know how Invest in Renfrewshire could help their business. As a result of the two day event, there have subsequently been job opportunities, interest shown in the graduate internship programme and the offer of a work placement for Trainee Ecologist. These opportunities are now being circulated round Invest’s Youth Services for clients to note their interest. The Invest team would like to thank John Workman, the owner/manager, and his colleagues for their hospitality over the two days.
