These are exciting times for Oxford Innovation. We are a leading operator of Business and Innovation Centres which provide office and laboratory space to growing companies throughout the UK. In 2011 we have expanded our network by nearly 50% and now manage twenty centres across the UK, providing space and support to over 550 innovative and growing companies – the kind of growth that gives us interesting challenges!
With this growth set to continue, we will have exciting opportunities for dynamic Centre Managers and Senior Centre Managers to play a key role in the management and promotion of our new and existing centres across the UK - most vacancies are likely to be in Oxfordshire, the Midlands, Yorkshire, the Thames Valley and on the South Coast. Our Centre Managers and Senior Centre Managers have the opportunity to play a significant role in the growth of an organisation that recognises and rewards hard work and commitment.
We welcome speculative applications from energetic individuals with a sales background who may be looking for a new challenge. If you have experience of operating a facility similar to an innovation/business centre, coupled with refined networking, management and negotiation skills, then we would like to hear from you. You will have superior commercial and financial acumen, the necessary skills to deliver an effective sales and marketing strategy to attract and retain new and existing customers, understand the importance of exceptional customer service and be able to successfully motivate, manage and develop a small team. Those interested in possible Senior Centre Manager vacancies will also have experience of multi-site management and the necessary gravitas and inter-personal skills to represent the company at a senior level.
If you would like to submit your application on a speculative basis for any future vacancies which might arise, please email your CV with a covering letter, including salary expectations, to "firstname.lastname@example.org":mailto:email@example.com.
