The West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF) is recruiting an experienced and self-motivated Project Procurement Manager to be an integral part of the team that is delivering the AeroSpace Cornwall Research & Development programme. Reflecting the growth of the aerospace and space sectors across Cornwall, the programme promotes and delivers Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) and Business Improvement across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (CIoS).
The programme is delivered by WEAF in Cornwall in partnership with the Cornwall Development Company. Businesses can benefit from RD&I funding for projects, Innovation Vouchers of up to £5,000 and Supply Chain Support of up to 100 hours. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Cornwall Council.
Reporting to the Project Manager, the Project Procurement Manager will utilise their detailed knowledge of current ERDF procedures and protocols to manage the planning, monitoring and reporting of beneficiaries’ claims and ensure they meet the requirements, protocol and scrutiny of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and ERDF. The post is a key role as a bridge between beneficiaries and AeroSpace Cornwall in managing the compliance and financial risks associated with ERDF.
