Jack Gifford Marine Design has taken on Charlotte Monks as a designer, thanks to support from Marine-i.

Charlotte has completed her interior design degree at Falmouth University and a work placement at Pendennis Shipyard.

Although Charlotte’s skill set is not one usually associated with naval architecture, Jack Gifford could see her potential and how she could add value to his business. With the help of the Marine-i salary subsidy, he was able to offer her a full-time job as a designer.

Jack says: “Taking on a new employee always puts an initial strain on cash flow. The salary subsidy support we received from Marine-i was a great help, giving us breathing space to get our new employee up to speed.”

Charlotte receives ongoing support from Marine-i innovation manager Dawn McColl from Falmouth Marine School.

Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Marine-i is designed to help the marine tech sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
