Prospectus is a widely respected recruitment business with an enviable client base drawn exclusively from the beyond profit sector – charities, funders, social enterprises, membership organisations, universities, museums, arts bodies and government. Our outstanding reputation in the Sector is well-deserved and has been earned as a result of the professional, ethical and values-based approach we bring to every facet of our business. It’s no doubt because of this that our own personnel are highly sought after both by other recruiters and by the clients we serve. Our current Head of Office and Professional is moving to a well-known charity, which is why we’re now looking for someone equally talented and driven to fill her shoes. Make no mistake this will not be an easy task, even for an experienced professional. However, get it right and we can promise immense job satisfaction working with a bright and motivated team, genuine input into company strategy as part of the SMT and a generous share in our profits.
We’re not going dwell too much on the scope of the role as you are no doubt familiar with the challenge of leading, developing and getting the very best out of your team (there’s11 people in this one). What’s just as important to us - and perhaps worth highlighting - is the level of client facing activity we will expect from you whilst building an external profile and presence within the sector. This is critical as much of the Desk’s business is through client referral - the rest will be down to you coordinating, directing and managing business development and marketing activities throughout the team. As you might expect you’ll also be involved in generating consultancy work and leading key accounts yourself.
Working here is probably a little different from wherever you are now (everyone who joins says so). We can’t emphasise enough the importance we place into truly understanding our clients’ needs and recruiting individuals that are able to make a real difference to both the organisation and the Sector. It’s because we’re so passionate about Beyond Profit that we approach assignments with more thought, integrity and care than our competitors; and that’s the essence of what’s makes us different..
Finally, to help you decide if you’re right for us (and us for you) here’s a few facts: We pay fairly but not extravagantly, nobody gets commission, and everyone can earn individual PRP as well as a share in our profits. If you’re good you will get on quickly and have the opportunity to help shape our future as well as your own.
