Beacon LogoThe Beacon Initiative was established by Cork County Council in January 2012 and is funded by the Economic Development Fund.

The initiative was set up to assist companies to sustain existing employment, create growth in turn over and increase overall profitability.

It also assists in the creation of new employment opportunities within existing businesses.


Beacon Retail Programme

The Cork County Council recognises that as the economy changed, Retailers needed
additional support without investing large sums of money in extra resources – this is where the Beacon Retail Programme comes in.

The initiative is individually tailored to the retail business in question and a dedicated Beacon Retail Advisor will work closely with management to discuss first hand the challenges they are facing. Once these challenges have been identified, a strategic working document is then compiled and put into action. This plan is continually reviewed, over a 4 month period.
