Director of Business Development
Together for Mental Wellbeing
London and remote
Together for Mental Wellbeing is the UKs oldest mental health charity. Since 1879, we have believed that people experiencing mental distress have the right to live the life they choose and determine their own future.
We offer a wide variety of support services and the people we work alongside are at the heart of everything we do. We currently work with around 5,000 adults every month via 70 projects throughout England, but we aspire to reach many more people through our five year strategy.
We are excited about our future, and through the fantastic commitment and dedication of everyone who works at Together, we will achieve our vision of continuing to be a recognized charity leader in its field delivering high quality mental health, wellbeing and support services.
As Director of Business Development, you will play a critical leadership role in the ongoing development and financial prosperity of Together, creating the conditions for our future success. You will be a key advisor to the Chief Executive, and the Board of Trustees in delivering our ambitions for the future, developing and driving our income generation work streams.
The role involves supporting a varied portfolio of opportunities based in different regions around the country. As well as looking for new funding opportunities, a key part of the role also lies in maintaining effective relationships with existing funders.
With proven experience in income generation with strategic and operational level expertise, you will be a collaborative and inclusive leader, who will work beyond your function to leverage the overall performance of the organisation and increase our impact. In addition to your business development credentials you will have significant experience of driving wider organisational change and of building, motivating and inspiring teams.
You will be a rigorous, clear thinker who acts with integrity, personally promotes equality, diversity and inclusion and who understands that people who use our services are at the heart of everything we do.
We have a firm commitment to encouraging fairness and diversity in our work force and we welcome applications from disabled people and those from BME backgrounds.
