Business Development Manager (PT – Flexible Hours) at The Care Hub
Calling all Ex-Recruitment Consultants, Recruitment Resourcers and Administrators
If you’ve seen the news then you’ll know that the care sector is in crisis. The Care Hub specialises in helping care providers to find the talent they need to continue delivering outstanding care. We’re not a recruitment agency and we don’t supply temporary staff. We provide recruitment process outsourcing, software and consultancy solutions to help care providers to grow their business, and where required, reduce their agency spend.
Due to our continued success, we are now looking for a warm hearted, passionate and driven individual to join our business development team. This role would ideally suit someone who has worked in recruitment as a recruitment consultant, resourcer or administrator, but maybe you didn’t enjoy the ‘pressure cooker’ environment that is often associated with most staffing agencies. Our business is completely the opposite of this, we are a warm and friendly bunch that pride ourselves on our team spirit, office banter and ability to do great work that really adds value to the care sector.
About the role and how you fit in.
Our clients tend to be either Domiciliary Care Providers or Care/Nursing Homeowners and directors who are either struggling to grow their business or are losing money because they are too dependent on using staffing and recruitment agencies.
Initially, your role will be to follow up on inbound leads from shows, exhibitions, inbound marketing campaigns to set-up a conversation with The Care Hub’s Managing Director. You will work closely with the MD so that you can learn how to manage the sales process, create proposals and develop a strong value proposition that ultimately leads to a sale.
We offer flexible working hours, and we already have two members of our team working shifts to fit in with their childcare needs. One works 10am-2:30pm, 5 days a week, the other works 10am-3pm 3 to 4 days a week depending on her commitments. We find that by adopting this modern approach to building a team, everyone is happy and motivated to give their best while they are at work because they have the flexibility they need to ensure that their family always comes first.
What are we looking for?
Above all else, you must fit in with our company and company culture, if this isn’t a fit, then nothing else matters. What is our company culture like? We are a warm and friendly bunch, we work hard but we don’t work stupid hours and having a laugh at work is really important to us. If you’re the type of person who takes yourself too seriously, doesn’t enjoy a bit of banter and you prefer a stuffy, shirt and tie or trouser suit type office then we’re probably not the company for you.
You must be PC literate and be comfortable with using either a CRM system, ATS system or similar as everything we do at the Care Hub is online. If you are not from a recruitment background then you must have excellent sales and business development experience and you must be committed to learning new skills. Full training will be given on the role but we do expect individuals to invest in themselves as much as we invest in them.
What do we offer?
We offer a competitive salary, 20 days holiday, up to a maximum of 25 days. We are closed from 23rd December until 2nd January and we have regular team nights out and do various challenges and events either for a charity or just for fun. Some people are doing a Tough Mudder event, some people did a 10-mile charity run, we’ve done the Santa Dash, complete with post dash Christmas drinks, quizzes and more.
If you want to work somewhere that’s probably not like anywhere you’ve worked before and you think you’d be a good fit for us then we’d love to meet you and find out more about you and your motivation to join us.
