Contact 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.

This is an exciting time to join the Business Development team as we build on our already established approaches and networks to deliver our valuable support and expertise to families of disabled children and other key partners and customers.

The successful applicant will be crucial in supporting the delivery of our business development programmes. This role will have key touchpoints throughout the organisation and externally, and will support the delivery of our range of ready made and bespoke support to families and professionals.

The successful applicant will enjoy opportunities to develop in a well-supported role within a growing department with strong links both internally and externally.  

Your role:

You will be responsible for setting up events online and face to face, contacting trainers, taking bookings, and making sure families find the right support from our wide-ranging options.  You will also be updating our CRM database, making sure invoices are raised and paid and collating information for reports from the database or Excel.

What we’re looking for

We are looking for someone who has excellent IT and digital skills, ideally with experience of online event systems such as Eventbrite and Zoom, a good knowledge of Excel and experience using a CRM database. You’ll need to be extremely organised with excellent written and verbal communication skills, a friendly, confident phone manner and a good knowledge of the issues and concerns families with disabled children face.

This is a home-based role so you will need to be self-motivated and able to work on your own initiative without daily supervision.  You will be expected to use online communication daily to maintain contact with colleagues and customers.
