Business Development and Consultancies Coordinator
|Contract||Full time (0.8 FTE will be considered), permanent|
|Salary||£25,000 – 28,500|
|Location||Remote; note that we can only directly employ people based in the UK, with a right to work in the UK|
|Application deadline||1 October, midnight UK time (UTC+1). Interviews likely Monday 9 October.|
We are a values-based not-for-profit with a mission to strengthen civil society organisations (CSOs), providing training, consultancy and research to CSOs around the world to do what they do, better. We are at an exciting juncture as we embark on a new organisational strategy and look to develop our offer in line with movements to decolonise, shift power and localise, building on our highly respected consultancy and training programmes.
About the role
INTRAC is seeking a versatile and dynamic Business Development and Consultancies Coordinator to support the smooth running and improvement of our consultancy practice, as we develop our organisational strategy. This will include business development, coordinating and ensuring high quality bids, providing essential coordination, logistic and administrative assistance for the successful delivery of our consultancy work. You will have experience as part of business development or support teams, involving administration and coordination of portfolios of work, ideally in a consultancy environment. You will have an eye for detail, capacity to coordinate multiple tasks with competing deadlines, and confidence communicating clearly with colleagues, external consultants and clients, to help ensure smooth collaboration and a high professional standard of work.
In return we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, and a chance to work with a respected, values-based organisation contributing to more resilient civil society and social change. We work remotely, with occasional team together days in the UK. Our long-term aspiration is to have staff members located across the globe, however, currently we can only directly employ people based in the UK, with a right to work in the UK. If you are based somewhere outside the UK and are interested in the role you would need to find a host organisation, or join us on secondment. We would be happy to have a conversation with you to explore these possibilities.
We are actively encouraging racialised minorities, people with disabilities, returning parents or carers who are re-entering work after a career break, people with caring responsibilities, people from low socioeconomic backgrounds, to apply. This is because these groups are under-represented within our teams, especially at senior level, and we recognise and value the contributions members of these groups make to strong, creative and high performing teams. Having lived experience of Africa, Asia or the Middle East would be an advantage.
Please note this is a readvertisement for a role we were unable to fill in July. Previous unsuccessful applicants need not apply.
