About the role

The role of the Business Manager is a combination of contract and customer relationship management along with people management of teams working for and directly reporting to you.

Working closely with Senior Management, you will have key day to day decision-making responsibility for your individual schemes including the management of staff.

You will work with key stakeholders including senior NHS and Social Care Managers to develop existing relationships and to identify and seek opportunities to expand and extend them. You will also support Senior Management in pursuing new contract opportunities within your geographical area and working on the implementation of those that are successful.

In managing the individual schemes, you will be required to develop and maintain excellent working relationships with all key stakeholders in each scheme and ensure that all delivery based or operational KPIs are met and comply with the reporting requirements required for each contract.

In addition to being responsible for the operational delivery of each team, you will be responsible for the performance of individual teams of staff who will be under the direct management of a team leader at each location. This will include overall responsibility for managing the recruitment, training, staff cover and compliance with company policies and procedures.

The role will require extensive travel within your region.

What sort of person are we looking for? 

We are looking to recruit an experienced manager, but if you are a graduate and have consistently shown progression in sales, operations or project management in any sector and have a passion to move into the healthcare sector, then full support will be provided in developing the knowledge and skills required.

We have previously recruited lawyers, health professionals, nurse managers, logistics and sales managers from both outside and within the health sector.

Are you?

  • Ideally a graduate, with a track record of achievement and promotion – selling, consulting, managing projects and diverse teams?
  • Upbeat, positive, with a genuine desire to build supportive friendly relationships with colleagues and stakeholders with the charisma to present to large groups?
  • Keen to make a real impact, have your ideas listened to and contribute to strategy development?
  • Hardworking, organised with an eye for detail and a flair for report writing, monitoring of KPIs, record keeping, data reporting and analysis with sound IT and finance skills.

In return, you will be given the opportunity to work in a company that has in place an exciting five-year growth plan. CHS Healthcare can offer you career progression and ongoing training to attain your ambitions.  We are looking for highly motivated individuals who have a genuine desire to build long and lasting relationships with a passion to succeed.
