Join Our Team: Open4Business Programme Manager

We are developing our support services and wish to appoint a Programme Manager to establish a procurement portal service, ‘Open4Business’ for all businesses operating across the Highlands & Islands.  This role will be initially funded until the end of 2020.  Our expectation is that the role will become a permanent position following the successful conclusion of the programme.

Inverness Chamber of Commerce is the region’s leading business organisation with a growing and active membership and hosts the region’s leading business events.  This is an exciting time for Inverness Chamber of Commerce as we continue to grow our service offering and programme delivery for the benefit of the region’s business community.

Inverness Chamber of Commerce plays a key lobbying and campaigning role, as well as providing a full range of services and events for our members, including our ‘Inverness Chamber International’ technical and export support services.  We also host the DYW Inverness & Central Highland Programme aimed at bringing the region’s educational providers and employers together to meet the needs of our young people.

The successful candidate will possess strong business development experience and a keen knowledge of the business environment across the Highlands & Islands.  Experience of working in private-public sector partnership would also be advantageous.  This is an important programme role, in which the successful candidate will report directly to Inverness Chamber of Commerce’s Chief Executive, and will become a key part of our small, hard-working and highly effective team.  The role will involve some travel throughout the Highlands and Islands.

The working hours will be between 9.00am – 5:30pm, Monday – Friday.  A competitive salary is available for this position, which is dependent on experience and qualifications.
