New Opportunities to Join the SparkFund Team

We are now recruiting additional members of the team to help deliver this established programme.

The existing team includes a Programme Manager, three Innovation Managers, two Finance and Audit Officers and an administrator.

We are seeking to recruit two additional Innovation Managers and a Procurement Support Officer. These posts will be based with the current team at the University of Hull in the Research and Enterprise department, although the roles will cover the YNYER and Humber Local Economic Partnership (LEP) areas so travel will be essential.

The Innovation Managers will work directly with SMEs across the two LEP areas. This work will include: proactively engaging beneficiaries; leading a diagnostic process; supporting SMEs in action planning and project development to secure grant assistance; supporting SMEs to procure delivery agents; key account management as SME projects are implemented; and evaluating outcomes.

The Procurement Support Officer will work closely with the beneficiary SMEs and the SparkFund Central Team to ensure the efficient and effective delivery and administration of the procurements related to awarded grants.
