Job description

Brighton College International Schools (BCIS) seeks an ambitious, driven and detail-oriented Business Development Officer to identify business growth opportunities and develop strategies to support our programme of international expansion.

Brighton College – awarded the title of ‘UK School of the Decade’ by The Sunday Times in 2020 – is consistently recognised as the United Kingdom’s best co-educational independent school and this success has been replicated with the opening of award-winning international schools across the globe.

This opportunity represents an exciting professional challenge for a recent graduate, just starting their career, or an established professional with experience in similar roles.

The Business Development Officer’s responsibilities include identifying opportunities in the market for working with new partners, therefore extending the reach of our premium education overseas. The role will also involve effective research, planning and relationship management to support the school’s business development programme and natural networking skills.

The successful candidate will have a strong academic background with a track record of meeting deadlines and an enthusiasm for working towards set targets.

Further information about Brighton College and Brighton College International Schools can be found on our website.

The deadline for the receipt of applications is at 12pm on Friday 12 November. Brighton College reserves the right to appoint a candidate prior to the closing date, so early applications are encouraged. Interviews will take place during the week commencing 29 November.

Brighton College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of employment will be subject to successful completion of pre-employment checks, including an enhanced DBS disclosure, the receipt of satisfactory references, the College’s pre-employment medical questionnaire, relevant original ID documentation and examination certificates. 

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.

The College is committed to ensuring that the recruitment and selection of staff is conducted in a manner that is systematic, efficient and effective and promotes equality of opportunity. Our full equal opportunities policy is available on the ‘Careers’ page of our website.
