We are looking for an equally ambitious and highly motivated individual to support and coordinate the development and growth of this exciting new venture.

Comfortable working to tight deadlines, you will be required to respond to enquiries regarding Tech East, inputting and extracting information and producing documents and reports.

With wide experience of administrative duties as well as a confident and pro-active approach, you will be reporting to the Tech East Chief Operating Officer and Board to deliver the initiative that celebrates and supports local digital technology businesses.
