Are you ready to drive the commercial development and growth of our globally influential training organisation? Do you know how to lead and inspire others in pursuit of ambitious operational and strategic goals? And are your hands-on technical and marketing skills matched by entrepreneurial flair and proven ability to deliver business results in a competitive international environment?
Then join CompEx as a Head of Business Development and Operations and we can promise you a career of exceptional variety and impact.
We are already recognised as the leading international certification scheme for people working in potentially explosive atmospheres, and you will help us take that leadership to a new level. It’s all about developing customer relationships, implementing new market initiatives and delivering outstanding levels of innovation and service. You will plan and manage all aspects of business development strategy – from identifying new opportunities and enhancing our existing qualifications and product portfolio to engaging with new customers and working closely with marketing and product development colleagues to provide and promote relevant, best-in-class training solutions. And in addition to putting robust policies, procedures and systems in place, you will use your leadership skills to create a dynamic, collaborative and performance-focused environment.
What we’re looking for
Along with a technical or engineering qualification to at least Level 3 or equivalent, you will have strong business development, marketing and sales experience – ideally gained in an international vocational education or training setting. You will certainly be thoroughly versed in developing business plans, formulating value propositions, setting pricing strategies and delivering effective marketing communications. Practical experience in digital marketing and developing efficient operational systems would, of course, also be invaluable. And it goes without saying that you will be a first-class people manager with good IT skills and the ability to communicate clearly in both writing and speech. A current UK passport and driving licence – and the willingness to travel nationally and internationally on occasion – are required.
What’s in it for you?
In return, we can promise you an attractive salary, benefits including a pension and life assurance, flexible home-based working and the kind of career prospects you would expect from a business belonging to JTL, one of the UK’s leading work-based learning providers in the building services engineering sector.
