Open to any women in the UK, irrespective of her age, background or experience, the Women's Trade Network will provide two access routes for women in trade. The first will be open to women already qualified in a trade and looking for advice on training on starting a business, while the second will provide entry-level training to women without relevant qualifications.
Cem Savas, CEO of Plentific and co-founder of the Women's Trade Network said: "The Women's Trade Network is an important initiative to encourage women to consider a career in trade. With the backing of the wider industry, we will be able to make a big difference and we are delighted that Wiggett Group has pledged its support; not just to the network, but to aspiring tradeswomen everywhere. Together, we will enact real change."
