Could your Business work with the Defence Sector?

25th October 2021

NEXT week, Fife Business Week kicks off a programme of events with a great opportunity for businesses who are looking to be involved in the Defence Sector and access business opportunities there and in the Security industry.

On Monday 1st November, MakeUK will deliver a half day virtual supply chain event aimed at helping Fife SMEs to find out more about working in the Defence sector and understand what the expectations are: the “ask” and the “dos and don’t’s”. Businesses will also hear about the support available to help access opportunities and gain insight into how to pitch and market a business in the Defence sector.

MakeUK champions and celebrates the UK’s Defence and Security industry. They represent the sector’s interests to government and champion their innovative, global and dynamic industry to the public.

Pamela Stevenson, Service Manager, Economic Development, Business & Employability at Fife Council commented: “This is another excellent opportunity for businesses to learn what is necessary to be considered for working in the supply chain in the Defence sector. MakeUK is the key organisation and link between the sector and government, so their advice, support and knowledge are invaluable for anyone wishing to get involved. This is one not to be missed!”

Fife Business Week 2021 features more than 20 exciting events featuring a wide range of topics from Finance, HR, Digital Skills to Industry Expert advice delivered by experts in both the private and public sectors.
