If you have connections to the UK start-up or SME community then we’d love to talk to you.
TYPES OF PARTNERSHIPS
Associate Business Adviser
You will perform a similar function to our in-house Business Advisers, although you will work remotely (you’re always welcome to our offices of course!).
You will help promote the Start Up Loans scheme, find suitable applicants, and assist them through the business planning and financial forecasting process.
You will be an experienced business adviser, preferably with experience of running your own business, and a good working knowledge of the Start Up Loans scheme. You will largely be responsible for generating your own clients although Transmit Start-Ups may also pass clients over to you.
As a Network Manager you will be responsible for promoting the Start Up Loans scheme to help recruit potential applicants and Affiliates (see below), through networking and marketing activity. You will be required to do an initial sift (to make sure the loan applicant is suitable) but you will not be required to provide business planning support.
You will be a well-connected business person (probably working freelance) with access to business support networks. You will either be given a geographical area to cover (e.g. West Midlands, Northern Ireland or East England) or a specific sector to focus on (e.g. digital/tech, manufacturing, retail, franchising).
If you are a business consultancy, accountancy firm, web design company, franchisor or any organisation that has access to the start-up community, then you are probably suitable to be an Affiliate partner.
If you are a recipient of a Start Up Loan and feel that you can help promote the scheme to your start up community then contact us about being a Start Up Loans Champion.
We will provide you with marketing materials so that you can promote the Start Up Loans programme via your website, blog, social media and newsletters.
As an Affiliate or a Champion, you will not be required to advise the applicant in any way.
