Business Development Lead

FutureGov is looking for an experienced Consultant to lead on Business Development and help us on our mission to design public services fit for the digital age. We believe citizens deserve access to user-centred products and services, delivered by digitally-enabled modern organisations. Our team is dedicated and passionate about public services designed around the people that use them.

This year marks FutureGov’s 10 year anniversary. From modest beginnings, we are now firmly established as a market leading digital and design company for public services in the UK and in many places around the world.

But we don’t want to stop here. The opportunity for digital transformation in public services is huge, as is the potential for FutureGov to play an ever bigger role in shaping the nature of that transformation. It will be your job to work with the CEO and management team to grow our size and impact fast over the next few years!

About the role

You will be responsible for growing our business in accordance with our growth plan. You’ll work closely with our CEO and Management Team to cultivate relationships with the sector, enabling us to reach our sales target and maximise utilisation across our team of digital design experts.

You’ll also work alongside our Strategy Director to hone our offer to the sector, leading on our business development strategy and content for sales collateral. You’ll have excellent communication skills and the ability to translate what clients need from sales meetings into written material. You’ll be working alongside our Bid Manager, who leads on coordinating tender responses, and together will share responsibility for communicating plans, actions and stories back to our growing team.

About you

We are looking for someone who knows how to use our market position, capabilities, and future ambitions to proactively develop and win business with new and previous clients. You will enable our team to understand the challenges our clients face and work with our interdisciplinary design teams to transition them from sales into delivery. As a growing area in the company, we need you to have a good understanding of the key policy areas across Government and be willing and able to use this to make the internal case for change when you spot gaps in our offering and showcase our work to enhance our reputation at events across the country.

Now is the time for radical change in government. For new delivery models but equally new ways of designing our public services, fit for the future not held back by the past.
