Business Development Manager
Full time position (37 hours per week) – permanent
Based at the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham
Salary 35K- 40K, dependent upon experience
British Canoeing is the United Kingdom's Governing Body for the sport and recreation of canoeing and kayaking. This is an exciting time to join British Canoeing, as we are making progress in delivering Stronger Together - an exciting and ambitious new strategy for paddlesport in the UK (2017-2021).
We now have ambitious plans for further development and we are therefore looking to recruit an experienced business development professional who can deliver a strategy to help us realise the full commercial potential of our sport. We are searching for an innovative and dynamic individual, who can quickly understand the organisation and develop and activate business opportunities. The ability to drive new initiatives and diversify our revenue streams is essential.
Whilst a knowledge and passion for sport would certainly be advantageous, it is not essential. More vital is that extensive experience in business management and marketing, ideally in a sports environment, and a proven track record of delivering commercial success.
The ideal candidate will be a positive and determined self-starter, with the ability to multi-task and meet tight deadlines, working equally well autonomously or as part of a team. We are looking for someone who is confident and articulate, with the ability to be an effective ambassador for British Canoeing, helping to build relationships with our key stakeholders and associated third parties.
Candidates will also ideally have substantial experience of working in project management at a senior level or able to demonstrate experience in this kind of role and have the ability to take individual responsibility for projects from concept to completion.
Please send a covering letter clearly stating your salary expectation and CV to:
HR Department, British Canoeing, National Water Sports Centre, Adbolton Lane, Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, NG12 2LU. Or Email firstname.lastname@example.org
