Commercial Development Manager x 1
Contract - Perm
salary : £38,946 - £49,818
Are you an enthusiastic and energetic individual with a passion for delivering lasting cultural change? Can you influence and persuade colleagues at all levels to share your vision and values? Do you have experience within a business or income generation role? If the answer is yes, then this role could be for you.
Enfield is a vibrant borough that is in the middle of an exciting period of change. Culturally diverse and with some of the most greenspace in London, Enfield is an excellent place to live and work. In the south of the borough, the regeneration of Meridian Water will deliver 10,000 new homes and thousands of new jobs. Enfield is an exciting place to be right now.
The last 18 months have been a challenging for us all, and like many other organisations we are seeking ways to look after our resources and maximise income generation. An exciting and unique opportunity has become available within the Commercial Services Team, as we seek to appoint the right individual to be at the heart of our cultural change programme. We are looking to appoint a Commercial Development Manager who will lead the Team’s cultural change programme. We have recognised that the only way we can achieve our commercial ambitions is by working with staff at all levels to build, promote and embed a commercial culture at the heart of the organisation.
Specifically, we need an individual who can work collaboratively across the Council with Directors, Managers and officers to drive forward a commercial culture where officers are actively involved in shaping excellent customer focussed income generating services. You will be required to assess the commercial maturity of the organisation, making recommendations to the Council’s Commercial Board and drive forward lasting change. You will need to support your colleagues to develop their skills so that they can identify a pipeline of new commercial opportunities. You will also need to work closely with the Council’s Learning & Development Team to ensure the commercial programme compliments the wider corporate cultural change programme focussed on the Council’s values and behaviours.
We need a genuine people person, an individual that can work with people at all levels of seniority to understand their barriers to working commercially. You will need to use all your communication and persuasion skills to change mindsets and ensure that thinking commercially is second nature to services across the Council.
You will possess excellent written, verbal and digital communication skills to ensure that you can get our message across to wide audience via a range of methods. Using your skills and experience working within a commercial role or commercial organisation will help you to be successful. A demonstrable ability to change the culture of a large organisation either individually or as part of a team will be essential.
