Having recently won a new contract that has generated significant growth, FES is seeking a full-time Business Development Manager to take responsibility for the entire recycling operation, providing sustainable waste management for businesses, local authorities and the third sector in Greater Manchester.

This unique job opportunity will place you in the driving seat of one of Greater Manchester’s most successful social enterprises. Working closely with the Board of Directors, you will lead a newly recruited management team of Operations Manager, Finance Officer and HR Officer, as part of a restructure undertaken to reflect rapid business growth and replace Fairfield’s retiring founder staff member. Your key roles will be to ensure the smooth, effective and efficient running of FES and to explore and develop new business opportunities to enable us to grow and diversify further.

With at least five years experience in a senior management position, ideally with experience in the waste management sector, you will have a proven track record of financial and people management, excellent organisational and communication skills, and experience in problem solving and dispute resolution. You will also bring to the job strong analytical skills and decision making abilities. You will enjoy varied working, and have the ability and practical skills to ‘muck-in’ on site when necessary.

As the trading arm of Fairfield Environment Trust, one of Greater Manchester’s most impactful environmental charities, FES is part of a family of environmental organisations operating in partnership across a range of sectors including building management (Bridge 5 Mill), and food and farming (The Kindling Trust), working together to bring real change to Greater Manchester. As you grow and develop FES, you will be responsible for generating significant income for the Trust, and you will have the opportunity to shape and grow both the business and our charitable work over the next decade.
