Business Development Officer

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

We are a provider of high-quality person-centred learning disability, autism, substance use, and mental health support services. 

We have a very successful growth programme, and we are seeking a bright energetic and motivated person to join our Business Development Team in further building on our performance, our creative thinking and our excellent rates of opportunity conversion.

To match our ambition to grow the scope and scale of our work we have created a new Business Development Officer role that provides further resilience across our delivery capabilities and solution development.  

Role Responsibility

As a Business Development Officer, you will be supporting a small team of Business Development Managers in their roles.

You will be responsible for creating and communicating property specifications and maintaining a tracker of properties being sourced. You will also be conducting property searches and some site viewings to support growth activities.

Assisting with the generation of referrals for new and vacant homes and creating productive internal and external relationships will also be a part of your role.

This role requires some travel to visit local areas to explore options for new homes and to support relationship development and shortlisted property viewings. Occasionally this may include evening or weekend work, but this should be rare, and you would take time back on other days. You will need to be able to work flexibly and to undertake the travel required.

The Ideal Candidate

This is an ideal role for someone who is passionate about health, social care or housing and has experience of working in one or more of these sectors; or who has lived experience and has worked in a sales or marketing support role. It will be important that at all times you positively embrace and promote the dignity, rights, ambitions and potential of individuals we support to achieve and sustain their best lives.

Collaboration, relationship management and team work with others will be essential, and you will need to use sound judgement when both leading and informing analysis, ideas creation, growth activities and decision processes. You will be busy. You will need to be very organised and be able to prioritise your work in a dynamic way.  

Your existing relevant knowledge will be valuable in this role and there is significant scope for further learning. This opportunity is ideal for someone thirsty for new knowledge and with the ability to apply this quickly and effectively.

About us

As a leading health and social care provider with more than 300 locations across England, we take real pride in the services we offer.

Across the varied regions, sectors and settings we operate within, our organisation is held together by a shared vision – and our people are connected by the same values. These include belief in potential, confidence in communication, embracing positive change and always treating each other as individuals.

We run all of our services on a not-for-profit basis; instead, we invest every penny back into our services and people. We never stop believing in change for the better, and we work constantly to improve the lives of the people we support.

Our people bring our vision to life. So, if you are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to support others to fulfilling their potential, here at Turning Point, we don't just offer you a job – we offer you a career.
