Job description

Business Development Commercial Manager

Itad is a global organisation. Our strategy, monitoring, evaluation and learning services work to make international development more effective. We generate evidence on important issues – from malnutrition to migration – to support our partners to make informed decisions and improve lives. We work with our partners and a global network of consultants to deliver a complete interdisciplinary service of the very highest standard, anywhere in the world.

Our partners include foundations, public and private sector organisations, governments, corporate clients and non-governmental organisations. We know that no two organisations are alike, and every project brings new challenges, so we take an agile approach, tailoring our services to each context and for every partner.


We specialise in providing high-quality evidence and insights to help our partners make better decisions based on an understanding of what works, how and for whom, anywhere in the world. Our cutting-edge work in monitoring, evaluation and learning – combined with consultancy services in strategy and design – spans topics, countries and regions.


Do you have an eye for commercial excellence and are familiar with the international development arena? Do you want to join a passionate team who make a difference?  If this sounds like you then you could lead the commercial elements of Itad’s business development work. This includes the development of financial proposals and guiding bid teams on overall commercial positioning and strategy.

The Team

The Business Development team works across all Practices to identify opportunities that align with our strategic priorities, build relationships with potential client and partner organisations and manage the development of successful proposals for our clients

The Role

You will be working with key stakeholders across the business, using your expertise and knowledge gained in International Development to manage the delivery of pre-contract budgets, cashflow plans and commercial proposals for new business opportunities.  You will lead the development of complex financial proposals and share this knowledge with the team and wider business through the delivery of learning modules.   Expertise in commercial analysis and reporting of key financial metrics is a core part of the role alongside developing commercial narratives and production of client proformas for inclusion in proposals.


Who you are

With a proven track record in the bidding space, you will be used to working to very tight deadlines with a particular focus on detail of accuracy.  You are able to flex your communication skills across a wide range of stakeholders to build and develop collaborative working relationships and convey complex financial concepts to non-financial members of the team

The role is based in our offices in Brighton & Hove (East Sussex) but will largely work remotely for the foreseeable future.  However, you will already have the right to live and work in the UK and be able to occasionally travel to the office if needed

Please apply on our website by Dec 7 but please note we will be interviewing candidates on a rolling basis

The salary rage for this role is up to £55K with a generous benefits package
