A new website bringing together a host of information about career and training opportunities in Cornwall has been launched for job hunters, students and residents thinking of changing careers.  

Cornwall Opportunities has been developed by Cornwall Council following a £257,000 grant from the government’s G7 Legacy Fund. 

Cornwall councillor Louis Gardner, portfolio holder for economy, said: “Cornwall Opportunities showcases the support that’s available for individuals and employers at a time when the nature of skills and employment is constantly changing. Whether that’s the gig economy, flexible working, net zero, automation, artificial intelligence or opportunities in our growth and emerging industries. 

“Importantly, this is a resource for people of all ages living in Cornwall and Scilly to provide a local perspective on opportunities, and it will support our local employers in raising the profile of their industries, recruit to their future needs and up-skill their workforce.”
