Business Growth Adviser Tayside - Fixed Term

35 hours per week (fixed term until 31st March 2020, potential to be extended to 2023).  Funded through the European Regional Development Fund.

Our Business Advisers play a key role in supporting growth within our local economies. Working closely with business owners across all sectors, their business skills, experience and networks unlock opportunities and open new doors for their clients. This is an exciting and positive time for our region, and we have an opportunity for a Business Adviser to join our team as we help to shape the future.

Operating at the leading edge of our industry, we are viewed as a thought leader for the future of enterprise and business support. Each year through the delivery of Business Gateway services we help over 2,000 new businesses to start up and deliver in excess of 500 workshops, masterclasses and individual events. We run Enterprise Conferences and Challenges that encourage future generations of entrepreneurs while our Business Awards celebrate successes. We manage 20 Business Centres which provide a home to over 300 SME’s. We have established 2 Centres for Entrepreneurship designed to accelerate high growth ventures. We are pioneers within our field and this is an exciting time to join our organisation.

We are Elevator.

We are growing and are looking for people with the energy, skills and talent who will further fuel this expansion. Within our organisation, Business Advisers work at the leading edge of our service delivery. We expect that you will already have a proven skill set encompassing core disciplines such as finance, marketing and strategic planning but we are looking for much more. In order to support our clients to grow, we need you to have an understanding of the factors influencing our local economy and utilise your creativity to inject new ideas into their plans. You will have a client focussed approach which is underpinned by great interpersonal skills and above all share our passion for improving business and enterprise across Tayside. In return, we offer you an exciting and varied team working environment where one day you might find yourself working with a food manufacturer from Perthshire and on another a renewable energy business from Dundee. We’ll help you to develop your networks of business contacts across both private and public sectors throughout Scotland and show you where to access innovation funding and specialist support to further enhance your clients’ growth opportunities. Truly, every day is different.

The post holder requires a degree or professional qualification within an enterprise or business related field and / or previous experience of running a business, along with a full driving licence as this role covers the Tayside region.
