Chief executive officer position

- Ludgate Hub, Skibbereen Co Cork.

In less than five years time a small market town called Skibbereen on the Southwest coast of Ireland will restore its original population, within its hinterlands, back to close to 6,000 people. The nature of its commercial patina will evolve to include a significant but diverse mix of science led and digital cottage industries.

Consistent with West Cork in the sixties and early seventies, our population will be enriched with people that will have made the astute choice to relocate from the four corners of the world to Skibbereen and its wonderful collection of beautiful villages. Skibbereen will be a place for people that work tirelessly on their entrepreneurial endeavours, design great products, and uniquely understand how to market all things globally with a hallmark from Skibbereen.

Through the endeavours of the Ludgate Board & team the journey has already started, We have ensured every building is wired up with 1Gigabit of Internet connectivity (one entrepreneur has relocated to Skibbereen from Clontarf in Dublin because his team can upload 4K video files in 120 seconds rather than 120 minutes), We have built a state-of-the-art hub, we have our community behind us, and we have an ambition to be the best small place to work and live in Europe, if not globally.

Success is coming fast and we want to a person of substance to consider joining our team to lead us wherever they maybe in the world today,  on one condition – you must possess an enduring belief in the potential of things and not a pre-occupation with why things might not succeed.

A conventional job specification would lay out lots of must have’s but we won’t do that in Skibbereen, preferring to see who is genuinely interested in our project, community and wants to live and work amongst us. The good news is we have extensive, entrepreneurial, industrial and International experience. We have relationships you can work with globally and we don’t take no for an answer.

The kind of things you do need to know is we have targets;

1. Join us to create 500 new jobs and 1500 indirect jobs

2. Help transform our place to bring all our people back home

3. Inculcate our culture to be unique in the world for  being entrepreneurially altruistic towards others

4. Assist us attract talented global business & investment professionals in the creative and technology industries to relocate lock, stock and barrel to Skibbereen and

5. Encourage us always to be top of the class when it comes to Science, Engineering & Innovation in this small place.

To close, if you have experience we value that but if you have tenacity and lack total experience we value that too. If you have both – perfect but hard to find! We believe that fulfilling the role of CEO of the Ludgate Hub is not just prestigious internationally but will more than likely convert you eventually into being a successful entrepreneur, whether you like or not – we are an infectious bunch.
