Job description

Business Development Lead for Vulnerable Children

Location: This post can be based in either our London office in Battersea or our Leeds head office. BookTrust is a hybrid working organisation with the expectation of at least 8 in person meeting days each month. There’s an additional requirement for occasional UK travel to engage with our users, partners and beneficiaries across the country and to connect with colleagues in our other hub locations.

Contract: Full time, Permanent

Salary: £50,000 - £55,000 per annum

This is an exciting and influential new role. Our work with vulnerable children is at the heart of our strategy. We are ambitious to reach more looked after children, previously looked after children, children in kinship care, and children on the edge of care across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. You will be part of a dedicated team developing a portfolio of new offers centred around the needs of these children.

Our ambition is to enable equal life opportunities for all children through developing regular reading habits. Reading brings profound and wide-ranging benefits that can have lifelong impact on children’s lives. These benefits have the potential to be particularly lifechanging for vulnerable children: reading supports attachment and bonding, stability, emotional regulation, and helps children explore issues of identity.

We are looking for an ambitious, pro-active, and engaging individual, with substantial and proven business development experience to design and deliver a strategy that will identify and secure the new customers and partners we need to deliver new support to vulnerable children. You will lead our work with partners in the vulnerable children sector, ensuring we reach new customers within the system to bring about the transformational benefits of reading to those who need it most.

To find out 'How to Apply', please go to our website. Please send a copy of your CV along with a covering letter showing how you meet the person specification and your motivations for applying for the role. Your covering letter should not be longer than two sides.

Closing date:           Monday, 27th November 2023 at 5 pm
