Business Development Coordinator

Location: East London | Full-time | £19,500 - £22,000 (DoE)

Renaisi is a long-standing and award-winning social enterprise with a simple goal: to spark change in place. We believe that the best way to do this is to ask a question: what does it take to improve a place?

What makes us unique is the fact that we combine two things in one business:  • we deliver employment support, advice, connection and engagement services to individuals, and  • we help social organisations, charities and institutions to deliver greater impact through our consultancy services.  We then generate new insights and learning from across our work with a range of people and organisations to think differently about how to support places well. As part of our twentieth anniversary, we have pulled together twenty essays from across the social sector on the question of what it takes to improve a place.

We’re currently growing our business and are looking for somebody to complement our busy and dynamic team. This is a new role that will be primarily focussed on supporting the progress of our newly-formed business development function but will have the opportunity to get involved with projects across different parts of the organisation (especially our consultancy team). We will offer you varied experience and a great opportunity to gain a valuable skill-set as well as build your knowledge of the non-profit sector, before choosing where you want to specialise in future.

What we are looking for: 

As much as we’re looking for someone with the relevant skills, knowledge and experience, we are also looking for someone who wants to make a difference to communities, organisations and places. We’re passionate about that and you’ll need to be too!

Most of all we are looking for someone who will be a great fit for our team. You will need to be:

• A “people-person” who shares our values

• Organised, methodical, self-motivated and able to juggle several projects at once

• Able to work confidently and collaboratively with a range of colleagues

• Inquisitive and curious about business problems and processes

• Resilient, willing to get stuck in and able to turn your hand to a range of work

Ideally, you will also have some relevant skills and experience, including some of the following:

• Knowledge of the challenges facing the non-profit sector

• Experience of stakeholder management and/or CRM systems would be useful, but not essential

• Experience of market and competitor research

• Strong MS Office skills

About the role:

The role will coordinate and monitor business development across Renaisi, tracking progress, communicating updates, maintaining records and attending group meetings. It will develop, manage and maintain systems to help busy people do their best work.

The role will involve liaising with staff from all teams across the business, including working with the Chief Executive and other senior staff. Whoever fills it may also have the opportunity to be involved in growing specific new areas of work or be involved in the work of the consultancy team.

The work of the role will be on a variety of projects and tasks, mostly supporting business development activity but with the opportunity to gain some experience across different teams in our organisation.

To start with, this role is a fixed term contract for 12 months with a start date in May 2019 (or as soon as possible thereafter).
