The Connected Cumbria team will work together assisting SMEs in developing innovative new products and services and addressing those issues of connectivity. 

You will have experience of delivering analysis and innovative responses to diverse challenges. Client and stakeholder engagement will be critical, with a view to designing plans, products & services for improved connectivity both for individual project beneficiaries and as part of a broader, county-wide stakeholder initiative.
