At Barnardo’s, we believe in children. Our purpose is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children. As we strive to achieve that goal, we have ambitious plans to develop our Children’s Services across the UK through focusing on key priority growth areas.

Now we need you to spearhead that growth as you lead our nationwide Business Development function, inspiring and empowering your teams to deliver exceptional performance. Bringing strong creative thinking skills and an innovative approach, you’ll manage all aspects of business planning and resourcing as you oversee high value and strategic tenders. This high-profile role will also see you carry out market assessments, business risk analysis and management, build sound partnerships with external organisations and work closely with senior colleagues across Barnardo’s.

With substantial experience of business development gained in Children’s Services or a related setting (adult social care, health or public sector contracting for example), you’re a first rate leader with excellent interpersonal, presentation and proposal management skills. You’ve also proved that you can lead successful proposals and influence thinking at senior commissioner levels. Last but definitely not least, you must have the drive, vision and tenacity to overcome obstacles and achieve outstanding commercial results.
