Networks Manager Job Opportunity

RTC North: Design Network North & Service Network

We are looking for a Network Manager to help expand and grow the network. 

The role will include looking after Design Network North's fabulous existing members, whilst also looking to find new organisations to get on board and be a part of a thriving community.

Not only will the appointed candidate be responsible for the growth of Design Network North, but they will also be instrumental in growing Service Network, another of RTC North's cluster groups. 

Here is some more information on the role:


The Post

The primary objective of this post is to manage and lead the growth of both Design Network North and Service Network. Key to this position will be to sell the benefits of membership to potential clients. The Networks Manager will be supported by RTC’s in-house finance, marketing and events team to ensure that the two networks operate profitably and that they are embedded within the wider company.

The person

We are looking for an excellent communicator who is confident, target focused and able to bring together and facilitate active networks of both design-oriented businesses, as well as professional services companies. The candidate will already have an established network within North East England and can hit the ground running selling membership subscriptions and renewals and building excellent client relationships from day one. We are looking for candidates who can bring energy and enthusiasm to both a vibrant design network, and a professional services network which, at one point, had over 300 members and was one of the most recognisable and well run in the North East region. Previous experience of running a network, cluster group or membership organisation would be desirable, but is not essential.

The post holder will need to be familiar with Microsoft Office and be keen to promote the project through social networks and at third party events.
