Location: Bournemouth (home and office)
Salary level: £40,000-£45,000
With potential for job to be based on a 4-day week
Silicon South is looking for someone to take a prominent role in leading the organisation, providing strategic direction and delivering our activities and events.
Silicon South is dedicated to supporting the Digital, Creative and Tech industry in Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Dorset and surrounding areas. It has created a Network for local companies to join and participate in. You will take a major role in shaping the future direction of the work needed to support the Network and the wider digital economy. This involves delivering activities which benefit our Supporters – e.g.: delivering events where they can meet prospect businesses; promoting the activities of the sector locally, nationally and internationally; linking with talent pipelines, such as local universities, to enable simpler access for employment.
You will help define the activities needed to achieve these aims in the longer term. This will be through regular contact with local companies and responding to the guidance of our industry steering group. You will also be instrumental in generating new revenues and seeking funding opportunities that can help support these activities. In the shorter term, you will manage the delivery of specific events which are already scheduled over the coming months. This is a senior role with the intention to take on growing responsibilities for the running of Silicon South as a whole.
