About the role
The post-holder will ensure sustainable income generation for The Advocacy Project in line with the strategic plan. Our current focus is to grow and diversify our income through winning contracts in new areas, while maintaining our strong performance in delivering sustainable services in the local government and health sector.
This role is responsible for identifying, qualifying, bidding/tendering, negotiating and closing opportunities, while making sure any resulting contracts are financially sound and are operationally and contractually deliverable.
About The Advocacy Project
We help people who are marginalised or vulnerable because of their circumstances make their own choices about their lives. We support them to speak up and help improve important services we all need. We want to make sure people across all age and care groups – including learning disability and mental health – can:
- voice their concerns
- understand their rights
- make effective choices about what happens in their lives
We do this through advocacy services which support people individually, and user involvement projects that help organisations improve the services they offer.
