You will create budgets and project plans and work with your colleagues, clients and external stakeholders to deliver them effectively.

You will play an active part in developing Hubbub Enterprise’s strategy. You will explore new business opportunities and help to make the most of our existing relationships. You are as comfortable talking to corporate clients as you are with local government and the non-profit sector.

We are looking for the following skills/experience:

  • Experience of running complex projects from beginning to end.
  • A high level of numeracy, and familiarity with creating and running budgets.
  • Experience working under pressure. You are able to prioritise and produce high-quality work with tight deadlines.
  • Sales and marketing: you have sold something, and you understand how to position and promote products and services.
  • Stakeholder/client management. You have been the main point of contact for clients or partners and feel confident managing and building those relationships.
  • Excellent written and spoken English; you are confident speaking in public and writing proposals, blogs and reports.
  • Confidence with Excel/Sheets and PowerPoint: you are able to organise and analyse data and create attractive presentations.
  • Business development experience (preferable but not essential)
  • Knowledge of social enterprise, corporate CSR and employee engagement, local government and/or waste & recycling sectors would be a bonus.

Hubbub aims to create a culture that respects and values each other’s differences, and we recognise that many people in our society experience discrimination or lack of opportunity for reasons that are not fair. We aim to increase opportunities for inclusion and diversity across our organisation.
