Along with being a region renowned for its beautiful beaches and inspiring landscapes, underneath its’ picturesque exterior belies the tech industry revolution, propelled by ambitious, visionary businesses and supreme connectivity. Not only will this role include global travel, but you’ll have the chance to meet innovative businesses that strive to make a difference around the world, and you’ll be collaborating with a close team of vibrant, highly motivated and passionate people, in one of the most beautiful locations in the UK.

Educated to degree level and having a strong interest and understanding of Creativetech and Healthtech smart specialisation sectors, you’ll need to show a strong knowledge of inward investment drivers, as well as current business issues. We’re looking for someone who’s experienced in developing B2B brand marketing strategies and can demonstrate a successful track record of client management. Our new team member should also have excellent communication, report writing and presentation skills, as well as enhanced networking and problem-solving abilities.
