Creating a world-class combined education and training facility, with strength in professional skills and finance and the capability of supporting the learning demands of thousands of individuals and businesses in the years ahead, is a realistic ambition of the proposed new College in South Shields.

In the meantime they are looking to recruit to a key post as Director of Business Development to take forward the Merged College from 1st August 2017. This post is critical to the success of the new organisation and will report directly to the Chief Executive Dr Lindsey Whiterod OBE.

This position is key in leading, managing and supervising the work of the Business Development team at the newly merged college. In addition the postholder will be required to actively engage employers, the LEP, partners and subcontractors by selling the newly merged college's learning provision and assets to generate an increase in participation in terms of learner numbers and revenue generation. This cross college role requires the postholder to work with curriculum and other colleagues including the PVC and TyneMet Principals and the Head of Apprenticeships to influence the development of the newly merged college's employer focused provision.

The successful candidate will have solid experience within Business Development, with a proven sales track record, from pitching to negotiating to closing final sales agreements and achieving sales targets. Experience working within both SME and large corporate sales environments is also essential.

Closing date 5th April 2017.
