ICE, Information Catalyst (www.informationcatalyst.com), is a high-tech, future looking SME operating in the ICT and software domain. ICE is currently looking for a range of highly motivated personnel as we grow including someone responsible for a mix of activities coming under the banner of Marketing, Administration and (junior) Project Management based in Cheshire, UK and thus the candidate should be local. The key responsibility will be to offload many of the elements that the CEO is currently involved with, allowing them to focus on core business development aspects. ICE participates in several exciting R&D projects (FP7, H2020…) to strengthen developments in the areas of science, technology, and innovation. Our profile revolves around Big Data, Integration, Cloud, Services and generic software development. These projects are large-scale, cutting edge, and including partners such as leading IT companies and Universities from all around the world.
As an SME we are looking for a flexible person who can contribute proactively to a range of activities, as listed below. We fully recognise you probably won’t be able to do them all but you should be able to do 60% now and feel you can cover much of the rest over time. However, interested candidates must have a good background in at least two of the main activites (Administration, Marketing, Project Management) to be considered for this role and you must be comfortable in fitting into all of these activities so, for example, if you are only interested in working with figures and not interacting and pushing members of a project team (e.g. to provide you the required input/information) this probably isn’t the role for you.
As well as assisting in day-data administration of the company, in this part/fulltime function, you will act as one of the members of multifaceted and multicultural teams that will also support project management, dissemination and communication activities and whilst not essential it would be beneficial to have experience of website content creation and the production of marketing material using off the shelf commercial packages.
[XXX – TBD]: The goal of the Project is to develop an Open Operating System. As project coordinator ICE is involved in most of the research and development activities as well as Project Managing the entire project. Thus in the context of this role it would largely be administration support and project management assistance
[XXX – TBD]: The goal of the Project is to provide an open platform, tools and services that allow European companies to create and operate collaborative networks across the value chain. ICE is leading the dissemination, exploitation, and standardisation activities in DIGICOR and you will be the responsible operational person to devise and execute many of these activities and do relevant reporting to the ICE Project Lead who in turn reports to the external project coordinator
