  • Sector: Charity
  • Location: Inverness
  • Up to £31,000 per annum, pro-rata + 5% pension
  • Hours: Part Time Contract
  • Contact: Firstport
  • Reference: Business Support Advisor

We are looking for a confident, experienced individual with excellent people and communication skills, extensive practical knowledge of business start-up support and the ability to assist social entrepreneurs across a wide spectrum of sectors.

You will contribute to the successful delivery of the Just Enterprise programme, as well as support your colleagues in the delivery and outreach of our other programmes in the Highlands and Islands region.

The role is client-facing and you will be confident providing support on a tailored, one to one basis (face to face, telephone, by email), as well as on a group basis in workshops and events. An understanding of the wider social enterprise ecosystem and being able to tap into your network and contacts to source advice and information for your clients is highly desirable.

This is a varied, mostly autonomous role and you will have the freedom to use your previous skills and experience to decide the best approach to support emerging social entrepreneurs. However, you are likely to have a busy workload, so you will be expected to manage your time effectively to make sure our contractual targets are achieved whilst maintaining an outstanding service to your clients.

This role is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced advisor with a track record of delivering business support to start-up businesses and looking to contribute towards creating a pipeline of robust, confident early stage social enterprises in the Highlands and Islands region.
