About You

As Business Development Manager you will need to manage a varied workload and not be scared of getting stuck in. You will be enthusiastic about the Hospice goals and vision and be able to demonstrate the creativity and ability to generate new business opportunities with the aim of increasing Hospice support, income and awareness.

Whilst previous experience in a similar role is desirable, high energy levels, passion and a keen desire to succeed are all essential qualities.

You will be business-focused and target-driven as well as being an excellent communicator who is skilled at building and maintaining contacts and who presents a personable and professional image at all times.

You will have exceptional organisational, planning, prioritising and project management skills, and possess a flair for problem solving. With a strong “can-do” attitude, you will not be afraid to challenge and improve on existing practices and bring the team on board with new initiatives.

You will be working in a fast-paced, very busy office environment so it is important that you are a real team player with the ability to get along with and influence people at all levels, whilst staying calm under pressure.
