Fixed-term – 6-month contract January to June 2022 (with potential to extend)
£30kp.a. pro rata
Elevator is recruiting now for a Digital Manager to be involved in the delivery of a £2.8m national business support programme (E3) to produce significant local community impact!
Due to recent contract success as part of the UK Government’s Community Renewal Fund, Elevator will be establishing a network of Rural and Urban Enterprise Hubs across Aberdeenshire, Dundee City, North and South Lanarkshire. From here we will co-ordinate a number of support initiatives including: Business Support; Access to Funding; Mentoring; Digital Skills education and Inspiring workshops, all with consideration to the environment and Carbon Reduction. In Dundee City itself, there will be a large amount of mobile outreach to businesses and the communities of Lochee and Stobswell.
We are looking to recruit a people-centred and technically competent Digital Manager to support our delivery of community focussed enterprise and business support activities in Dundee comprising start-up and existing business support. This project is funded through the UK Government’s Community Renewal Fund and is considered to be one of the pilot programmes that will help shape the future for community-based enterprise and business support.
You will report to the Elevator Dundee Business Enablement Manager who will oversee the delivery of services specifically in the two areas of Lochee and Stobswell. These will add to Elevator’s local services presently delivered from our Business Gateway office located in Dundee City Quay. Your role will be flexible and will cover several aspects including ensuring interconnectivity between the City Quay office, outreach activities via mobile van supporting remote delivery of programmes, specific events, and activities focussed on these very local communities. You will work towards ensuring that any pop-up HUB locations become recognised as the places to go to for digital training support for businesses; to help sensitively introduce digital skills to these community areas; supporting early-stage start-ups, young entrepreneurs, those seeking new careers/opportunities and those who find traditional engagement with Business Gateway services challenging. We anticipate that activities will be wide ranging and will include (non-exhaustive): technical support for the pop-up HUBS, specialist support for the communities to maximise community engagement to level up digital skills and increase the rate of digital engagement, helping general digital understanding and user operability. Community engagement via our pop-up HUBS will include facilitating webinars, 1-2-1 digital support to access e-learning/training materials and business advice digitally using on-demand laptops and headsets with access to the CRF projects’ bespoke E3 Portal, LMS and other communication platforms like MS Teams, as well as social media expertise.
