Networks Manager


Salary: £28,000
Hours: 35 hours per week

Closing date for applications: Thursday 19th May 2016, 5.00pm

Creative development agency, Generator is looking for an outstanding, well-connected individual to take responsibility for Digital Union, the creative and digital business regional membership network we recently took-over and re-launched. Further information on Digital Union is attached.

You will be responsible for growing subscriptions for the Digital Union membership and should demonstrate direct experience of developing similar networks or subscription-based models. We are looking for someone who is target-driven but not exclusively so – fundamental is an appreciation of the unique characteristics most businesses and individuals working in this exciting sector exhibit.

Generator’s CEO, Jim Mawdsley, has assembled a new Digital Union advisory board, and you will be responsible for maintaining this board as well as being guided by them and linking their collective expertise to the network businesses.

Digital Union is also firmly bolted into Generator’s new business support project (information attached) that will run up until December 2018 – you will work alongside the Business Support Programme Manager in ensuring strong take-up from the digital business contingent, linking talent, entrepreneurs and business to the opportunities available at Generator and through its partner’s network.

We are looking for someone that actively enjoys developing and cultivating relationships with people, businesses and organisations – engagement and follow-up are going to be key aspects of this role. Project and/or account management experience will be useful and Generator would be interested in hearing from candidates who have business development experience and ideally events experience.

We are looking for someone that can ‘join-the-dots’ between all the individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses and organisations working in the North East’s growing creative and digital sector which you will be passionate about and committed to.

This post is part-funded by England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.

*subject to approval of contract conditions and signed funding agreement with DCLG
