Ross Whinnett

Grant Facilitation Manager

I’ve been involved in the delivery of publicly funded business support programmes across all industry sectors, including providing grant funding support to third sector organisations, managing a multi partnership project, providing business start-up support and working as a Business Engagement Manager. 

More recently, I worked supporting businesses engaged with Marine-i, helping them to shape their projects and develop funding applications.


Career highlight: I’m not sure this qualifies, but taking time out of work to travel extensively was probably the most rewarding thing I have ever done, it developed skills and enhanced perspectives that continue to help me in my day-to-day life and career.

I'm always best remembered for my home brew! It’s nearly always volatile and nine times out of ten it is what you might describe as an acquired taste.
