Nwes provided a number of services across three entities, the three sectors of the business make up the company and supports its mission statement and Values “Encouraging Enterprise”
The three sectors include Services, Property and World of work.
Services initially provide direct support for clients who are looking to start up in self employment, offering free business advice and training. Property ties in well with services as we are able to offer clients who come to us for the support easy in, easy out tenancy in our premises across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge and Essex, this gives them the opportunity to utilise professional offices for their new businesses.
Our third entity is World of Work, also known as WoW which is a charity enabling us to provide work experience and educational packages for students.
Our main customers are young entrepreneurs looking for business advice for their ideas, although we attract a large variety of customers. Business ideas can vary from high end Solicitors to garden and maintenance, therefore the courses we provide are generalised so that we are able to support everyone.
Nwes is a social Enterprise so that support we offer relies upon contracts that we win from either government or private entities. Either way we have to abide by guidelines, for example one contract we have recently gained is Start Up Loans, which is low rate loan for 18-30 year olds. Sometimes our customer base is restricted because of our contracts.
