Durham City Incubator (DCI) is a unique partnership between Business Durham, Durham University and New College Durham to increase new business start-ups and graduate retention in Durham. Based at Salvus House in Durham City, the project will provide an intensive incubation process for start-up businesses, aimed primarily, but not exclusively at students graduating from Durham University and New College Durham that are ready to start up a new enterprise.
Business Durham is seeking a highly motivated and experienced individual to set up and drive forward the operational model for the Durham City Incubator. This role offers an exciting opportunity to be ‘in at the beginning’, to shape and deliver a new project, bringing your experience and ideas to achieve the vision of the partners, and ultimately help to create a self-sustaining model.
The role will involve responsibility for the design, delivery and management of the intensive incubation programme, including liaising with partners, recruitment and engagement of participants onto the programme, marketing the DCI, developing an alumni network, identifying potential future sponsors and maintaining the necessary records for ERDF audit purposes.
The successful candidate will have substantial business and commercial experience, and a track record in developing and managing business relationships. A connector, you will have strong interpersonal and networking skills, genuine interest in supporting the success of others, and the ability to build influential relationships and establish trust. Recent experience of managing and delivering business incubation or acceleration services is essential, as is knowledge of the business support landscape in the North East LEP area. Ideally candidates will have experience of working with graduate start-ups and of delivering ERDF funded projects.
This post is part funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Fund Programme.
