WES is expanding its staff team and is seeking to appoint a Business Development professional on a part-time contract basis.
The growth rate of start-ups in Scotland is encouraging but there are still twice as many men starting businesses as women, and women-owned businesses make up only 20% of the total. So there is much more potential to be realised.
Women's Enterprise Scotland (WES) was set up in 2011 to provide advocacy, research and policy influencing, and to create a dialogue with business support organisations to raise awareness of the untapped growth potential of women entrepreneurs.
The Business Development Manager will work with the WES team and directors and be responsible for developing opportunities to enable the organisation achieve sustainability and growth.
We are looking for a self-motivated individual who takes the initiative and is also a good team player. Experience of working with SMEs and knowledge of the women’s enterprise policy context, in addition to a business development background, will be useful.
The contract is initially for twelve days per calendar month and location is flexible.
You can find the full role description here and further details of the contract are also available.
Applications are invited in the form of CVs, with a covering letter telling us why you should be appointed to this role.
They should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org and the deadline for applications is midday on Tuesday 11th December.
Interviews will be held in Edinburgh on Monday 17th December.
