We've had a busy few weeks since our last newsletter, November is looking to be a really productive month, the previous quarter was close to where we usually are.
Looking forward to the next quarter it feels somewhat uncertain as to what we'll achieve, but as usual we strive to support where we can and deliver great service along the way!
This month I'm sharing 3 articles on different topics, all of which are pertinent right now.The first is 'Everything you need to know about applying for a sponsor licence'.

The full article includes details of the Nesta £2.8m Rapid Recovery Challenge supported by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation and Money and Pensions Service. The challenge aims to encourage the development and scaling of innovative solutions that improve access to jobs, training and financial support. Read the full text here.
