The Opportunity

The South East Local Enterprise Partnership (South East LEP) is a partnership of the private and public sector which drives economic growth across East Sussex, Essex, Kent, Medway, Southend and Thurrock.

Local Enterprise Partnerships are responsible for ensuring the provision of Growth Hubs in their areas, which help businesses navigate the business support landscape. The SELEP Growth Hub operates via three sub-hubs in Kent, East Sussex and Greater Essex. This model requires co-ordination and some central delivery of activities across the SELEP area.

The postholder will be the key co-ordinator between the sub-hubs and will lead on compliance and reporting against Growth Hub funding agreements, provision of the digital service offer, and priority workstreams decided by the Growth Hub Steering Group and/or the SELEP Business Development Manager.

There will be a requirement to work with suppliers of IT systems, lead Local Authorities and the Government Department that is funding the Growth Hubs.

The post will be part of a small Secretariat team based in Chelmsford and will report directly to the SELEP Business Development Manager.
