Oxford Innovation Advice (OI Advice), is recognised as one of the UK's leading business support providers, with over twenty years' track record of success in helping high growth innovative businesses thrive. The last seven years saw OI Advice exceed all targets in supporting Growth businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly under the previous round of EU funding and we are proud to have been appointed (subject to funding agreement) to deliver the next wave of flagship business support programmes here. The purpose of these programmes is to accelerate economic development in Cornwall through the nurturing of businesses that will contribute to a stronger local economy for the benefit of everyone.
About the Role
One of the new projects is focused on Financial Readiness, supporting client businesses to raise funding to support their business development. This exciting project will guide and mentor businesses through a variety of funding raises including traditional debt to Angels, Venture Capital and the Crowd. We are seeking a Project administrator to join us. You will be part of a close knit, energetic and motivated team who relish the fast paced and flexible requirements of the programme. Your role will be responsible for the smooth running of online GROWTHmapper assessments and Helpdesk support. The GROWTHmapper Administrator will be both home and office based, supporting clients and the wider team with all activities relating to GROWTHmapper assessments, programme delivery and the client journey. To achieve this, travel within Cornwall will be essential so you must be able to demonstrate the ability to attend the office and local events when required.
You will be a central point of contact for clients, advisors and others outside the company so a bright personality, confidence and being able to work on your own initiative is imperative. The ability to deal with a varied workload in a professional and efficient way is essential.
For these important roles we are seeking a degree level or equivalent professional with client relationship, data collection and administration experience. Competent across all Microsoft Office applications and simple data analysis, confident with providing technical support via the telephone or email, comfortable with meetings, challenging targets and timescales, whilst ensuring critical quality control measures are met, you must relish working in a collaborative and supportive team environment where individual efforts are committed to and celebrated in the context of the achievements of the group.
If this sounds like a team where you would thrive, we look forward to hearing from you.
