Salary: £25,000
Start Date: ASAP
Location:
Manchester

Company background:

We are recruiting for one of the country's leading regional investors, able to drive significant and profitable growth through their Complete Connected Capital model. Their mission is to find great domestic businesses with global potential. Because of their strong local footprint, deep understanding, and knowledge of the regions, they have been successful in finding such businesses through serial founders that trust us to invest and behave responsibly. Some of these are in quite discrete sectors which they are only able to access through their specialist expertise and established networks, many of which have performed well in this current environment. An exciting time for the company despite what has been an unprecedented year in terms of the disruption of COVID-19, the organisation has emerged a year ahead of plan and has already grown its team by more than 20 people over the last 12 months.
