Business Growth Manager: Access to Finance
Grade 10 – Salary: £32,486 – £38,099
The Skills and Growth Company is responsible for delivering access to finance services across Cheshire and Warrington.
The Cheshire Business Needs survey states that a quarter of businesses are failing to access finance to secure growth. Evidence from the British Business Bank indicate that this is due to a lack of awareness among SMEs of the availability and benefits of alternative forms of business finance, other than commercial lending.
The Business Growth Manager: Access to Finance will be responsible for working with business to ensure they are ‘investment ready’ to improve their chances of securing finance. The individual will be responsible for ensuring that businesses have a good understanding of the different funding options available including government backed lending schemes such as the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.
The individual will operate as part of the Growth and Investment Service providing growth and investment services to around 500 businesses per annum across Cheshire and Warrington. The post is part funded by ERDF, supported by the 2014 to 2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme. The programme is supported by Cheshire West and Chester Council and Warrington Borough Council. The role is a fixed term three year contract.
