Enterprise Manager, Enterprise & Start-up Team, Careers & Employability

Rhys has worked with students to help coordinate the very successful Grangetown Festival 2017 and the Grangetown World Market in July 2017.

Rhys leads the Enterprise & Start-up Team who work to help students bring their ideas to life. Enterprise skills can give students the confidence to excel in all areas of life, be that education, work placements, graduate jobs and in the community. Developing these skills can also open up the possibility of self-employment as a legitimate career.

In 2016/17 we piloted experiential projects where students could develop their enterprise skills in the community. In collaboration with Community Gateway and Grangetown Community Action, we supported a team of students with taking operational responsibility for the annual Grangetown Summer Festival. We also supported a team of students from the Cardiff Business School who undertook research to help launch the first ever Grangetown World Market in July 2017. We hope to build on both of these successful projects and to continue giving student the chance to develop their skills whilst making a difference to local communities.
