About the role
This is a great opportunity for an individual with experience of working with SMEs at a senior level to make an impact within the local SME business support landscape.
The main purpose of the role is to significantly contribute to the support of Three Rivers SME business growth and development by providing growth advice and support to SMEs applying to access the Three Rivers Business Growth Grant.
We are looking for someone who has ‘real life’ experience of operating at a senior management/board level position within SMEs; experience of coaching and mentoring at a strategic level and ultimately someone who has a real passion for working with and supporting SMEs to realise their potential.
The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills; must have a good understanding of the needs and challenges of SMEs; have the ability to manage client relationships at all levels; possess a natural passion for a sustainable SME sector and be a collaborative team player.
This is a fixed term contract until 31 March 2022 and it is a part-time role working 28 hours per week. We are currently working remotely due to Covid-19 and meet our clients through video calls. Therefore, we are flexible around where you are based. However, you will be required to travel to clients around the Three Rivers Area and occasionally to our Hatfield office once restrictions are lifted.
We are committed to equality of opportunity for all and value diversity in our workforce. If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation, please let us know.
