Senior Development Manager (Public Sector)

Catch22Pear Tree St, London EC1V, UK, Remote

Catch22 is hiring a Remote Senior Development Manager (Public Sector)

Company Description

Catch22 exists to help build a society where everyone has a good place to live, good people around them, and a fulfilling purpose. We’ve been a charity for 200 years, and today we continue to make a difference to people’s lives by designing and delivering quality public services. We work with prison leavers to reduce violence, we provide education to enable young people to succeed, and we support the young people experiencing crisis who need us.

But we don’t stop there. Our vision is to fix the complex web that can trap and disempower those it was set up to help. Our emphasis on public service reform is about investing in new structures and programmes that will change the system for good.

Our team is made up of over 1,700 people from all over the country, and every single person means a lot to us. We’re a diverse bunch, we reflect the communities we work in, and we really do believe that diversity makes us stronger. Our London office is home to our Leadership and Corporate team, and is an entrepreneurial, energetic, and passionate base with a fun but hardworking culture. This office also serves as a base for colleagues who work remotely.

Job Description

Where you fit in

 

As a Senior Development Manager (Public Sector), you will be integral to Catch22’s work with public sector commissioners: you will build new public service delivery propositions using your relationship-building and sales skills. This role is central to Catch22’s Development Team’s ambitious plans for finding large-scale public sector opportunities that align to our reform mission and our goal to build resilience and aspiration in people and communities.

Reporting to the Business Development Director, you will be joining an entrepreneurial, energetic and passionate unit with a fun but hardworking culture, all relentlessly committed to Catch22’s core mission and purpose. You will be bringing in-depth knowledge or interest in one or more of our areas of policy focus (children’s services, employment, justice and education). Public sector income is our main source of funding; you will be key in helping us to deliver on ambitious goals to reach more people and increase the scale of our impact.

You will have autonomy over sourcing and securing large-scale strategic opportunities in public services and will play a major role in Catch22’s overall development objectives. Most of the time you will be expected to operate under your own initiative and curiosity, researching and identifying prospects, building solid proposals, and convincing public sector commissioners with expert insights and belief in the work that we do. Relationships will be at the centre of what you do, and getting alongside, impressing and persuading people will be key to your and our collective success. A Development Coordinator will report to you and support with market research, proposal writing & development and general project management.

The Development Team as a whole is the engine room of Catch22’s mission and business plan. It also consists of the Partnerships and Communications and Marketing units and collectively seeks to grow our reach, influence, impact and secure funds that allow us to change peoples’ lives for the better. If you are intrinsically motivated by impact, have the skills, but more than anything, you are creative, entrepreneurial and passionate, please read on.

Main Duties and Accountabilities

Lead the way in securing significant public sector opportunities for Catch22

You’ll be bringing a contact book with you but also invest effort in researching and approaching public commissioners that share our vision for transforming communities. An agile networker, you will know how to land the big meetings and to prepare for and execute them. You will be amazing at building relationships from scratch and attuning to commissioner requirements that match to what our beneficiaries need and our organisational strategy. You will bring the big ideas with energy and passion. There will be few constraints to your ambition, but you will also be expected to perform to high standards at all times and to deliver results.

Build a pipeline of public sector opportunities

Your aim will be to build a pipeline of new opportunities across our key public sector hubs (justice, employability, children’s services and education) and convert 2-3 large tenders into real projects, every year. You will have deep knowledge of one or more of our service areas, enabling you to operate at senior levels and persuade public sector commissioners that Catch22 is the right partner for them. You will also be prepared to do some of the heavy lifting in bringing together fully costed proposals and funding pitches that win people over. An entrepreneurial spirit and commercial literacy are a must.

Design innovative delivery programmes and write persuasive proposals

You will have free rein in building effective responses to commissioning intentions, working with our Operations experts and aligning to their unique skills. This will involve running design workshops, working alongside expert partners and Catch22 operational hubs. You will write strong, impactful proposals and deftly present your pitch to commissioner panels. You will produce quality output every time: you are motivated by the win.

Champion Catch22 and our work on every occasion

You will keep your ears closely to the ground and watch government policy developments in our key areas of work, always on the look out for new opportunities. You will work collaboratively with the Communications unit to amplify our interests and generate new public sector leads, making sure our messaging is in line with the work we do, and that all events and engagement work is targeted at the right stakeholders. You will be happy and proud to project Catch22’s work through your networks.

Nurture relationships and look for opportunities to build in existing accounts

You will be skilful in cross-selling Catch22’s skills and expertise in existing accounts, recognising that current funders might be interested in the range and depth of our skills and experience. You’ll be on the look out for ways to build on existing relationships, and will always have an eye on the needs of the people we support and build strong rapport with funders who want to back our work.

Grow your internal relationships and take Catch22 forward

Behave like this is your organisation and to take control of your and our collective success. To do so, you’ll need to build strong relationships and make it your business to know what is happening across the organisation and spot opportunities for collaboration.

What does good look like for this role?

You will be working in Business Development and with the wider Development Team to hit our income targets. You’ll be generating new leads, developing strong relationships, designing new services and, once funding is secured, handing over to operations.

About You

  • You are engaging and build solid relationships. A master communicator adept at expressing complex ideas simply and telling compelling stories. You listen well, and find ways to build rapport with others quickly.
  • You can think strategically and know how to connect to the essence of what Catch22 does. You understand what we are trying to achieve and how this might fit with the intentions of specific public sector commissioners.
  • You’re exceptionally well-organised. You can keep on top of a shifting set of projects and opportunities and bounce back quickly at times of high stress and from inevitable setbacks. You can project manage not just the work, but the people involved to keep energy levels and momentum up.
  • You can think big and challenge ideas. You understand social outcomes and have a deep understanding of one or more of the policy environments in which we operate (education, justice, children’s services and employability), and can balance up commercial risk and reward. You can apply business-minded thinking to helping us achieve our goals.
  • You can write, pitch and present brilliantly and are confident flying solo. You know how to summarise complex information succinctly, and how to get into the mindset of the audience to pitch it in the right way.
  • You’re not afraid of working hard in pursuit of a big vision. You have resilience, dedication and a keen interest in the sectors we’re working in – and you read around the subject in order to remain sharp in the pitch.

Organisational Relationships

  • Report to the Assistant Director of Business Development and contribute to the delivery of Catch22’s Business Plan.
  • Work closely with the Head of Partnerships, Chief Development Officer and Business Development Director to identify future funders and partners, sharing your insights across the team.
  • Build strong relationship with other Chief Officer Group functions, especially Operations in order to understand our operational hubs and markets and develop quality proposals.
  • Establish a key working relationship with corporate and operational colleagues and corporate services (such as finance) that you will be reliant on to do your job well.
  • Liaise with external stakeholders, especially prospective and current commissioners and partners.
