Head of Development and Business Growth

About The Role
We’re looking for a Head of Development and Business Growth who has a passion for delivering an exceptional internal customer experience, driving continuous improvement and living the ethos of Salvation Army Homes.

As a development professional with extensive experience within the Housing sector, you will know that developing our business is key since the landscape for niche and supported housing providers like Salvation Army Homes is a challenging one.

You’ll be a key part of our Senior Management Team and will be responsible for making key business decisions, as well as improving the skills of your team.

You’ll use a proactive, future-first approach to ensure that decisions are in-line with both medium and long-term objectives.

This is a hybrid role, working from home with occasional visits to the Bolton office, monthly in person Leadership and team meetings (London and Manchester), and occasional visits to front line services across England.

If you are people focused and can demonstrate our culture of fun, open, ambitious, supportive, collaborative, positive and safe, we would love to hear from you.

Interviews will be held on Thursday 09 May 2024.

  • 26 days annual leave (plus bank holidays) rising to 31 days
  • An extra day off on your birthday
  • Pension (up to 6% employer matched contributions) with life assurance
  • A High Street discount scheme (great savings both on and off-line)
  • Healthcare Cashback scheme
  • Private medical insurance
  • Occupational Sick Pay
  • Long service awards from 2.5 years

That’s where you come in.
