Job Description

Project Description:

Unlike traditional spaceport sites where launch is the core business, Spaceport Cornwall’s business model is different, targeting businesses to establish on site who are enabled but not reliant on launch, so Spaceport Cornwall is the focus for the UK’s next technology revolution providing a year-round business location that encourages R&D and attracts space enabled companies and related enterprise.

While the brand is strong it is currently very focused on launch, and this project aims to broaden the reach of the brand to better communicate the whole offer, and to produce a suite of marketing assets suitable for our core markets and customers. In addition to launch operations Spaceport Cornwall also offers –

• Future flight services

• Engineering, office, lab workspace

• Business Park

• On site cluster support

Spaceport Cornwall has recently moved into Cornwall Airport Newquay which is currently updating its own brand identity which will be completed by the start of the SPINternship. Part of the project will be identifying how the Spaceport brand integrates and compliments the wider airport brand.
