This Bracknell based professional body are recruiting an experienced Operations Manager to oversee their nine UK and Ireland regional hubs.
You will have nine regional Development Managers reporting directly in to you, who's remit is to build relationships with prospective employers, education providers and other key external stakeholders with a view to increase both membership and other income generating opportunities, via a suite of sponsored events.
You will be responsible for reviewing targets, setting KPI's, managing budgets and providing exceptional line management to your team.
The successful candidate will be well versed in what it is to provide a consultative, soft-sell approach when building long term business relationships.
This role would not suit candidates with a more direct sales approach used to opting for a quick-win.
Although you're scope is mostly operational and line management related, you will be expected to support the Development Managers with larger accounts,
by mentoring, coaching and leading on external clients visits.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a strong leader looking for a new challenge. Although this role is predominantly office based, there will also be extensive national travel involved.
It is essential that you have extensive line management and relationship building experience within a business to buisness context.
It is also essential that you have a strong empathy and understanding of the "not for profit" sector.
