Worcestershire County Council are seeking an experienced and highly organized Business Support Assistant to support delivery of the next phase of development of the Business and IP Centre Worcestershire. This exciting new role will support the development of Worcestershire Libraries' new business support offer for entrepreneurs and SMEs across the County.
