Business Development Officer Vacancy
Do you want to make a difference in getting more people to take up cycling? We are looking for a committed and target-driven individual to build strong relationships with schools and businesses to encourage them to take up our cycle training services.
Outspoken Training teaches life skills and creates more confident and more able cyclists through interactive and engaging cycle training.
We run courses and initiatives throughout the country but our inspiration comes from where we started - in Cambridge, the UK’s city of cycling. We have a dedicated team who make it their mission to show others how much (fun!) can be done on a bike.
Position: Business Development Officer
Location: Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
Job Type: Part time, permanent
Hours: Minimum 20-30 hours per week (some flexibility on times)
Salary: £19,000 - £23,000 pro rata
About the role:
We are looking for a dynamic person to be part of our growing team of committed staff that is helping to get more people onto their bikes.
The main areas of the role are to:
- Encourage school, businesses and individuals to take up cycle training and other related services. This will be mostly on the phone and most schools will already be working with us. Getting schools to take up the free or subsidised training will be up to 50% of the role.
- Help develop and ensure we have positive and relevant marketing materials.
- Manage our communications outlets, including writing regular newsletter articles, social media posts and working with local media
We are looking for positive and results-driven candidates with an impressive track record in sales or business development, either in the commercial or education sectors. You will be a self-starter with the ability to build positive relationships, especially on the phone.
You will possess excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, along with the ability to identify new business opportunities by building productive relationships. High-level attention to detail and organisational skills are also essential for success in this role.
We’re a small business, so the job is varied. You’ll need to be flexible as well as having a can-do and positive attitude. We’re ideally looking for candidates who share our ethos and have a genuine interest in encouraging cycling as a normal, everyday means of transport.
