Job Title: ERDF Project Manager/UK Lead
Working For: F6S Network Ltd
Salary: £36,000 - £50,000
The EDUCATE project is a 3 year ERDF funded initiative that will be delivered by UCL in collaboration with F6S, Nesta and the Education Foundation. EDUCATE will set up a physical and virtual working space where EdTech SMEs and researcher entrepreneurs will work together with research and business experts. All participants will be trained, supported and resourced.
A range of services will be offered to SMEs: product evaluation, testing and validation; accountancy and tax advice; grant writing, investor readiness support; dissemination and showcasing. This support will be available as required and not in a strict order. In addition, bespoke training sessions will be organised in response to needs expressed by the community.
The EDUCATE project, and the EDUCATE Project Manager, are part financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), as part of the England 2014 to 2020 European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Growth Programme.
F6S is a community of entrepreneurs, programs and others that help entrepreneurs grow. We’ve grown quickly since launch in September 2011 and now serve users in 100+ countries.
We are growing fast - we need people who can join us and run our UK government funded projects department.
Most of the time, you will be responsible for leading the EDUCATE project. That means delivering more value to the community of tech founders in London and making sure the project delivers results for them.
The rest of your time will be dedicated to leading development of more opportunities to help founders grow in partnership with the UK public sector.
