Tempest Revenues & Benefits
The Government provides support grants for those businesses which have been most severely affected by COVID-19. Swindon Borough Council takes the Government’s guidance and rules for each scheme, creates, and promotes online application forms and then processes and pays eligible applicants.
Since March, Council staff have been processing the grants alongside (or in some cases instead of) their day to day roles. We are now looking for a team to take on this role, working with the Business & Economy Manager to assess the applications.
Each scheme has its own criteria, some set by the Government and some by the Local Authority, but each one has its own set of guidance and back office checking instructions. We are looking for a small team to take on the role of following the instructions, assessing the applications and recommending payment of grants or refusal.
These grants are essential to support Swindon’s economy and many businesses may not have survived the year without them.
