Business Development Manager

Your role

Contact aims to support families of disabled children, whatever their condition, wherever they live in the UK.  To do this we need to be financially sustainable. The Business Development Manager will play a key role in achieving this by working collaboratively with colleagues to both grow existing income generating projects and identify and secure new ones. 


21 hours per week. Normal working hours with occasional evening and weekend working as required.


What we’re looking for

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.   

Knowledge of the voluntary sector and the issues it faces
Excellent knowledge of the issues faced by families of disabled children
Knowledge of the political and legislative drivers that impact families with disabled children
Knowledge of SEND, Health and Social Care legislation that impacts and affects families with disabled children
