We aim to develop projects that combine mostly existing technologies into new products and services and demonstrate how they will work when plugged into a smart electricity network. This is about collaborating with internal and external teams to create products and services that meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders. Individual projects might range in value from tens of thousands to a few million pounds.
The challenge is to identify and further develop potential new business models for projects, demonstrate how they can be financially viable and get them delivered on time, on budget and to the required performance specifications. This role needs a leader working strategically at Board level and with external stakeholders to identify potential new smart energy business models and leading a development team working with external contractors to deliver projects to time, cost and specification. This is an absolutely key role in our growing organisation, needing someone able to think innovatively and who is driven by the desire to turn these ideas into a very practical reality.
We expect the new Business Development Director to have a demonstrable track record of successful business development and project management experience, ideally at Board level, and with a good understanding and ideally experience of raising finance into new projects.
This role reports to the CEO and will have direct support from and line manage a Development Manager and Project manager.
