University of Northampton Enterprises Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Northampton. The University is the leading University in the UK for social impact and social innovation, supporting all types of enterprise and entrepreneurship. Through Northamptonshire Growth Hub we provide a high quality business support service which is designed to help individual and SME business clients across the UK to successfully start, build and run their businesses.

We are a delivery partner in a European Regional Development Fund part-funded project led by Northamptonshire County Council. The Northamptonshire Digital Enhancement (NoDE) project aims to help SMEs who want to improve broadband connectivity and develop their business using digital technology.

Working within the Northamptonshire Growth Hub team, the Digital Adviser will support local businesses, seeking to understand each SME’s digital needs and providing them with relevant information, advice and guidance appropriate to the development stage of their business. They will account manage, monitor and track client progress through different elements of support offered through the NoDE ERDF project.

The individual should possess a comprehensive and practical understanding of digital applications and emerging technologies which could benefit pre-start, new and established SMEs together with an understanding of how digital solutions can be used to facilitate business transformation and scale-up activity in local SMEs. Experience of delivering European funded projects (ERDF or ESF) would be a definite advantage.

The successful candidate will be self-motivated, collaborative, organised and able to manage time effectively.

This is an exciting time to join our University as we prepare to relocate to a new state of the art, vibrant, town centre campus in 2018. We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of TRANSFORMING LIVES + INSPIRING CHANGE.

We are an AshokaU accredited Changemaker University that believes in providing students and staff with the opportunity to change their world for the better.  

Please note that the University of Northampton Enterprises Limited are unable to offer sponsorship to work in the UK. We can therefore only accept applications from individuals who are currently eligible to work in the UK. 

The University of Northampton as an employer strives to achieve diversity among its staff which reflects the communities it serves.



This role is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund
