Business Development Manager

Hours: 21 Hours per week 

Salary: £38,553 – £42,613 pro rata

Join us!

Contact a Family is a national charity for families with disabled children. We provide information, advice and support, and bring families together so they can support each other. We campaign to improve their circumstances, and for their right to be included and equal in society.

Your role

Contact has already established some key Business Development approaches and networks that generate income to enable us to extend our reach and share our valuable expertise to help improve lives for families of disabled children.  

This work means that we are increasingly cementing our reputation as a charity with outstanding in-house expertise, able to offer a range of “off the peg” or bespoke solutions to improve the experiences of families with disabled children.

With this solid base to build on, we are now recruiting an additional part time Business Development Manager to join our existing team so we can fully explore and maximise our potential in this area.  Targets will be stretching but there will be support from colleagues to help us achieve success for the charity as a whole.

 The post will be part of our Participation and Regional Development Team.  It will be home based with travel across the UK as required.   

What we’re looking for

We are looking for someone who is confident to build relationships with customers, colleagues and external partners and who is passionate about delivering good customer service and making a difference to the lives of families of disabled children.

You’ll be a natural problem solver, confident with financial information and motivated by delivering targets. Ideally you will have a good knowledge of the issues faced by families of disabled children and a strong understanding of what support and services can make a difference to their lives.  Experience of statutory commissioning processes and writing funding proposals will be an advantage, as will some experience in a commercial environment.
