Oxford Innovation Services (OIS), is recognised as one of the UK’s leading business support providers, with over twenty years’ track record of success in helping high growth innovative businesses thrive. The last ten years has seen OIS exceed all targets in supporting SME businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly under the previous round of EU funding and we are proud to be delivering the current wave of flagship business support projects here. These projects are funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), part of the European Structural Investment Fund (ESIF) portfolio. The purpose of these projects is to accelerate economic development in Cornwall through the nurturing of businesses that will contribute to a stronger local economy for the benefit of all.

Access to Finance is one of these projects, focused on Financial Readiness, supporting client businesses to raise funding to support their business development. This exciting project guides businesses through a variety of funding raises, from traditional debt to Angels, Venture Capital and the Crowd. After an extremely successful first Phase, the project has been extended for a further 3 years until December 2022 for which we are seeking a Project Systems Executive to join us. Working in modern offices that include a café and free onsite gym, you will be part of a close knit, energetic and motivated team who relish the fast paced and flexible requirements of the project.

Overseeing the Client Relationship Management (CRM) system and other in-house systems, your role will be responsible for building relationships with client businesses in order to facilitate the collection and processing of documentation and data evidencing the project output and investment match targets. The Systems Executive will be predominantly office based supporting clients and the wider team with all activities relating to project delivery and the client journey.

This will include the ability to deal with all referrals and enquiries, from clients and stakeholders, in a friendly, professional and efficient way. A bright personality, confidence and being able to work on your own initiative is imperative.

For this important role we are seeking a degree level or equivalent business administration professional with data collection or client acquisition experience. Competent across all Microsoft Office applications, comfortable with meetings, challenging targets and timescales, whilst ensuring critical quality control measures are met, you must relish working in a collaborative and supportive team environment where individual efforts are committed to and celebrated in the context of the achievements of the group.

If this sounds like a team where you would thrive, we look forward to hearing from you.
