Job description:
Parkwood Leisure Head Office, Worcester

Parkwood is one of the leading leisure management companies in the UK, currently operating 90 varied facilities that include leisure centres, theatres and outdoor activity venues on behalf of 28 Local Authority clients. The company has enjoyed steady and consistent growth since its inception in 1995, and now manages revenues in excess of £80m per annum.

Over 35,000 swimming lesson participants each week.

Following an internal promotion and investment into the team, a new Head of Business Development is being sought to secure ongoing growth for the company. This is an exciting time for the business when diversification opportunities are being proactively sought out. Reporting to the Sales and Marketing Director, you will provide a strategic lead to securing new management contracts through effective pipeline management, research into new and existing markets and local government procurement processes. The department also seeks out appropriate acquisition opportunities outside of procurement.

The Head of Business Development will be an astute business leader with strong numeric, written and communication skills. Applicants will need to demonstrate capability in winning new business, be innovative in their approach and capable of negotiating complex commercial deals with new and existing clients. They will be expected to coach and lead the dedicated business development team to deliver bespoke proposals adapted to each of our clients requirements, to review and improve upon the quality standards within bids and deliver robust financial business plans.

The chosen candidate may offer a successful background in winning business within public sector, B2B commercial sales or sponsorship, ideally in a leisure related industry. Experience of design, build, operate and maintain (DBOM) contracts or project management would be advantageous but not essential. Applicants should evidence in their covering letter any comparable roles within a sports, theatre or outdoor activity related sector where possible and highlight how they have influenced the strategic direction or growth of a similar organisation. Ideally a graduate, this role would suit a professional looking to develop their career with a successful private sector business.

Please send a covering letter and CV, together with current salary details by clicking Apply Now. Alternatively, you can send you application direct to Helena O'Keeffe, HR Assistant, Attwood House, John Comyn Drive, Worcester, WR3 7NS.
To discuss this opportunity further contact Emma Stones, HR Manager or Joanne Martin, Sales and Marketing Director on 01299 253 400.

Interviews will take place throughout the process, so early applications are encouraged.
