Renfrewshire Leisure

Head of Business Development

£60,290 – £63,029


Renfrewshire Leisure is a vibrant and ambitious culture and leisure charitable company that delivers services and experiences across Renfrewshire. Originally established in 2003 to manage and deliver sport and leisure services in 9 venues on behalf of Renfrewshire Council, in 2015 the charity was expanded to include the delivery of cultural facilities and services, increasing our asset base to 64 venues and over 20 outdoor recreation sites.

Our vision is to improve the health, well-being and quality of life of local communities through accessible arts and culture, leisure and sporting opportunities. We deliver a year-round programme of activities and services that meet the needs of our diverse audience groups. As well as supporting the economic regeneration and civic renewal of Renfrewshire, we are developing a cultural portfolio intended to raise the profile of Renfrewshire as a national and international cultural and tourism destination.

We have created the new role of Head of Business Development within the senior leadership team to lead Renfrewshire Leisure’s business development and commercial activities to ensure we maximise all available opportunities to increase income surplus to deliver the charitable purposes of the organisation. The role includes developing areas of new business; overseeing commercial programmes and product development; identifying new market opportunities, determining optimal pricing to balance profit with customer satisfaction and community benefit; and directing associated sales, marketing and media activity. A key priority will be the successful delivery of the major cultural venues currently under refurbishment, including the flagship museum project Paisley Museum Reimagined, and which form part of Renfrewshire’s ambitious Future Paisley programme.

This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a team which includes marketing, communications, sales, fundraising, retail and catering and contribute to the overall strategic direction of the organisation. The successful candidate will be creative and innovative with a strong customer focus and the ability to create excitement and passion about service delivery.
