Cornwall Marine Network

About Cornwall Marine Network

Cornwall Marine Network (CMN) is a membership owned organisation: created by a small group of Cornish marine businesses in 2002.

 

CMN’s main aims are to improve and grow the prosperity of the Cornish marine sector, to maintain and increase marine job opportunities, to improve the skills of the workforce and to encourage networking between our members.

New initiatives include building links with schools and colleges to encourage young people into the marine sector. Our aims are reached with focused activities including:

 

  • Training programmes and grants for developing skills
  • Business directories and websites for creating awareness
  • Events that encourage networking opportunities
  • Business advice that supports profitable growth
  • Sourcing funding to help businesses develop

 

directory2014transOur recent key achievements include delivering a marketing grant scheme which supported more than 100 member businesses and created over 220 new full-time jobs, supporting 80+ member businesses to become self-sufficient at risk assessment, developing new national qualifications plus finding ways to overcome the barriers to training engagement which have enabled us to arrange and support training to over 1,000 marine employees. Membership Membership of CMN is split into two categories:

  • Full membership (for marine businesses)
  • Associate membership (for businesses who work with the marine sector)

 

If you’re a marine business in Cornwall we’d love to hear from you. Simply call us on 01326 211382 for a no obligation discussion about how we can help your business.
