Director of Business Development
(or Associate Director depending on experience/track record)

We seek a dynamic, experienced leader who thrives in a fast-paced, values-led, mission-focused environment, and succeeds in winning support from corporates, government, trusts and foundations alike. 

Good Things Foundation is the UK’s leading digital inclusion charity, and our mission is to Fix The Digital Divide – for good. We are the charity behind the National Databank, National Device Bank, and the National Digital Inclusion Network – the nation’s social infrastructure for digital inclusion. 

It will be your responsibility to get Good Things Foundation in front of the right people, resulting in more investment, more device donations, and more impact in the lives of digitally excluded people. Our annual income target is currently £6m per year to help fix the digital divide. 

You will be excellent in opening doors, generating leads, closing deals, and bringing people with you. An experienced, empowering leader, you will be committed to motivating and managing an excellent team. 

We would particularly like to hear from candidates whose professional and personal experience brings new perspectives. Whatever your professional background – you bring integrity to all your work, and always deliver what you say you will.
