Self-Employed Business Support Officer

Cornwall Wildlife Trust is a charity and membership organisation. We are the leading local wildlife charity working to protect Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places. 

The Trust is looking for a charismatic, enthusiastic and passionate self-employed Business Support Officer (BSO) who can inspire local businesses to regularly support its charitable work through the Trust’s Business Supporter membership scheme. BSOs are expected to generate their own leads through research, as well as recommendations from the Business Support Manager. It is essential that the contractor is a self-starter and confident to approach businesses 'cold' on their own. The ability to quickly build relationships and rapport with potential businesses is also very important.

Previous fundraising, sales, marketing or customer service experience would be an advantage, but more important is being articulate, self-motivated, engaging and having an enthusiasm for wildlife and nature conservation. 

Minimum time required 15 hours per week. Potential start date ASAP.

Income will be on a commission only basis (further details of commission rates and expenses are outlined in the Information Pack)

Information Pack available on our website by clicking apply.

If you are interested, please produce a tender document (no longer than 2 sides of A4) to cover the following:

  • Explain how you would target and engage with prospective Trust Business Supporter members?
  • How would you ensure they signed-up to the scheme?
  • How would you ensure they renewed their membership?

Date for final tender submissions is Friday 14th April 2017
