Role Profile: Divisional Manager – Business Development

Department: Business Development

This is a senior role in our business, responsible for the operational implementation of our business development plan.

In particular, you will be responsible for ensuring that:

  • individual and team-wide activity is of the right volume and quality to deliver our planned profile of starts
  • team members consistently work in line with our agreed processes and in accordance with Damar’s values
  • team members effectively build strong, consultative relationships with current and future partner-employers and, as a consequence, grow apprentice numbers with those employers
  • we efficiently maintain relationships with our small accounts and grow the number of Damar partner-employers.
  • we fill planned apprentice cohorts.

You will manage Damar’s team of business development managers and executives and will be responsible for performance (including performance support/improvement) and recruitment. You will have budgetary responsibility for training and other costs (e.g. team meetings).

You will undertake business development of your own. However, targets will be based significantly on team performance and, as we grow, the expectation is that most business development will be undertaken through your team, with your support where appropriate.

As a member of Damar’s senior management team, you will work closely with our other divisional managers, members of the board and Damar’s marketing manager, as well as other internal and external stakeholders.

  • Normal hours of work: as set out in your terms and conditions of employment
  • Reporting to: Managing Director
  • Location: as set out in your terms and conditions of employment

Please note that an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is a requirement of all roles at Damar.


The deadline for completed applications (we reserve the right to extend) is 5pm on Friday 19 April.
