Based 2.5 days in each of North and South Lanarkshire
Fixed term – 6 month contract January to June 2022 (with potential to extend)
£30k p.a. pro rata
Elevator is recruiting now for Digital Managers 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.
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 across North and South Lanarkshire 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 North and South Lanarkshire Project Managers who will oversee the delivery of services across four Enterprise HUBs located in Cumbernauld and Shotts in North Lanarkshire and Blantyre and Lanark in South Lanarkshire. These will add to Elevator’s local services presently delivered from offices located in Bellshill and East Kilbride. Your role will be flexible and will cover several aspects including ensuring interconnectivity between the HUBS and outreach activities via mobile van supporting remote delivery of the programme, its specific events, and activities to the local community. You will work towards ensuring that our four HUB locations in North and South Lanarkshire become recognised as the places to go to for digital training support for businesses, and to introduce digital skills in challenge-based community areas, supporting early-stage start-ups, young entrepreneurs, those seeking new careers/opportunities and those from multi-disadvantaged backgrounds. We anticipate that activities will be wide ranging and will include (non-exhaustive): technical support for the HUBS, specialist support for the communities to maximise community engagement to level up digital skills within local communities and increase the rate of digital engagement, understanding and user operability. Community engagement via the 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.
As a vital part of Elevator’s Strengthening Communities team, we expect that you will already have a proven skill set.
