The Women’s Organisation – Positive Action Trainee Business Advisor

Term: 6 Months with intention to extend when funding secured.
Hours: Full Time
Salary: £25,000 pa
Location: Liverpool

We are seeking to recruit a trainee business adviser to support the delivery of the Nia Black Business Hub (NBBH) services throughout the Liverpool City Region (LCR). This pilot intends to confirm and develop our understanding of the multiple complex barriers faced by BAME communities when trying to access business support and advice.

The NBBH is an innovative pilot led by The Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre in partnership with The Women’s Organisation. It will be the LCR’s first business incubation and support hub that focuses on supporting potential and already existing Black owned businesses. The NBBH will enable, empower, and encourage members of the BAME community to start and grow their own businesses within LCR. The NBBH, which will be established within the Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre, will provide a range of opportunities including offering business support and incubation as its main priority.

This role is a positive action post to support the diversifying of the professional business advice and support profile by increasing the number of BAME business advisers in LCR.

This role will be employed by The Women’s Organisation and trained within their highly skilled business advice team. At The Women’s Organisation we are committed to flexible working and applicants applying for full time or part time posts will be considered.

If you are have an understanding of the multiple challenges that BAME communities face, including when starting or growing their businesses, and are interested in gaining the knowledge and skills to become a business adviser, please visit The Women’s Organisation website  for an application pack.
