The Ad: Venture Enterprise Growth Programme is an £18m Business Support project which offers wrap around support to help new and young businesses in their first three years of operation. To date the programme has worked with over 2700 individuals & businesses.

The project is a partnership between Leeds City Region local authorities, Chambers of Commerce, Universities, the Voluntary Sector and West Yorkshire Combined Authority and is partly funded by the European Union* until 2022.

Having secured a second round of funding we are currently seeking to strengthen our programme delivery team by recruiting a Compliance Manager. This is a new post, and will play an important role in helping us deliver a successful second phase of the Ad: Venture programme.

The successful candidate will be responsible for managing contract compliance across the Ad: Venture programme, ensuring that the project meets a range of contractual obligations, while fulfilling its overall objective of supporting new and young businesses to grow and prosper.

The positon represents an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated individual with; an interest in helping businesses in the Leeds city region grow; experience in a project or programme management role and an understanding of how to work with a diverse partnership to deliver systems and processes that work better. You should also have a good working knowledge of ERDF Regulation as they apply to business support projects.

We are looking for an individual who is a good team player but also has the confidence and ability to work and lead on their own initiative – often working to tight deadlines, ideally with some experience of working with or developing information management systems.

The post is offered on a fixed term basis for an initial period of up to 24 months – with the potential for extension. The post holder will be based in Leeds City Centre but with regular travel to Ad: Venture partners across the Leeds City Region.
