Making Rural Business Digital (MRBD) - Contractor Opportunities
GrowBiz’s LEADER-funded project aims to provide the support rural enterprises need to sustain and grow, with a focus on digital routes to market, co-working spaces (enterprise ‘hotspots’), and digital upskilling. Our vision is to make Perth and Kinross the most entrepreneurial rural economy in Scotland.
Through peer learning, mentoring, networking and 1-1 meetings this project supports anyone seeking to become self-employed, start/grow a small/micro-business or social enterprise. A key element of the MRBD project is the development of at least ten Smart Villages (digital communities) in rural Perthshire.
To successfully deliver this project we are recruiting additional self-employed contractors for the following roles:
