The Business Ready programme provides fully funded support to ambitious, tech-based SMEs who share a common determination to succeed. We support a diverse portfolio of clients by helping them meet their potential by overcoming the barriers to scalability and sustainable growth.

We are starting the third iteration of this successful programme, which first started in 2016, and looking to add key skills to our friendly and experienced team.

Applicants should evidence, either in their CV or covering letter, proven skills or experience in at least one or more of the following areas:

  • Marketing, including online/digital marketing and social media marketing
  • Digital and/or enabling technologies (including 5G and AI/ML)
  • Electrification and autonomous vehicles
  • Sector specialisation (eg: medtech, biotech, IT and systems, manufacturing, etc)

You are someone who understands the unique challenges that drive SME business growth. You have a track record of success working across sectors and industries. You are able to engage and establish trust quickly, and draw on a range of experiences to support the business and its management team. You know your limits and are able to judge when best to bring in supplementary expertise to support the client.

Working out of University of Warwick Science Park you will be joining an experienced, friendly and supportive group who are passionate about making a positive difference and helping to drive success in the West Midlands. Experience of operating within an ERDF (or equivalent) funding environment would be desirable but not essential. Roles are part-time and flexible.
