I worked at Business Link full-time (More than 3 years)
A thoroughly enjoyable job dealing with SME's across the North East. Opportunities to specialise in certain sectors and work with a wide variety of different people.
As previously stated, a very "political" environment where hard work and results which would have been valued in a more commercial setting were often ignored in favour of pre-existing relationships.
