Job Description

Newbattle Abbey College is Scotland’s life-changing adult education college, offering extensive support to adults and young people at points of transition. The college also plays a national role in the strategic development of adult learning in partnership with a range of agencies.

Set within an historic 16th century building and 125 acres of ancient woodland and parkland in Midlothian, a few miles from Edinburgh, the College is a registered charity and was established under a Governing Deed of Trust, the Trustees of which have historically included the Principals and Vice Chancellors of Scotland’s ancient universities.

Due to an increased focus on generating income to support its vision and purpose, a new post of Business Development Manager was created to drive further growth in the college’s commercial activity.

The successful candidate will be responsible for increasing income from a range of activities and identifying and successfully implementing new income streams. You will embrace the college’s purpose, vision and values and will thrive in a dynamic and unique environment. You will have demonstrable experience of setting and achieving growth income targets, developing successful marketing strategies and maintaining effective external relationships. You will be highly adaptable and enjoy working as part of a small team to find creative solutions and achieve goals.

Reporting directly to the Director of Operations, and working closely with the Principal and Depute Principal, you will play a full part in the strategic leadership and direction of the college. You will also have an outward-facing role, supporting our commercial and other strategic partnerships.
