Business Development Manager - 18.25 h.p.w - FTC until 23/12/2020
Following the University’s success in securing European Regional Development Funding (ERDF) for the Digital Solutions project based at the University Centre Shrewsbury, an exciting opportunity has arisen to work on this new and developing project. Digital Solutions is aimed at supporting small and medium-sized businesses in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin to develop, commercialise and exploit new and emerging digital technologies. The project will work with any industry sector, but has a particular focus on the heath sector.
A Business Development Manager is sought to provide a proactive point of contact for businesses accessing the project’s services, helping them to identify and exploit the opportunities that digital technologies offer to growing businesses. You will have proven experience of business development activities with small, growing businesses, preferably in a project/Higher Education environment.
You will be educated to degree level (or equivalent), and a relevant, professional qualification in either business or the project sector focus - digital technologies (and related) is desirable.
