Business Growth Hub’s Digital Growth service is tasked with supporting Greater Manchester’s SME’s with proactive advice and guidance on the use of digital technologies to innovate and help their businesses grow. This support is delivered on 1-2-1 basis through a team of specialist digital advisors and through a programme of 1-2-many digital workshops, masterclasses and events. Working in our central Manchester office, this position will support the Digital Growth Manager in the delivery of the overall Digital Events’ Programme.

This is a fast paced and busy role requiring someone with an intelligent approach, excellent organisational skills, high attention to detail, a focus on the customers’ total event journey and the ability to drive a number of projects simultaneously.

An understanding of the principles of digital marketing and the digital landscape of Manchester would be an advantage, as is a willingness to learn and grow your wider digital knowledge.

You will also be required to build relationships with existing entrepreneur networks, partners and local authorities to raise awareness of the programme and to ensure the highest level of engagement across the Greater Manchester region as well as work with our in-house marketing and events team to develop a fully integrated offer to ensure the delivery and required impacts of the contract are achieved.

The successful applicant will have great communication skills, a professional and courteous manner along with confidence in both working and communicating with people and management at all levels.
