Dynamic Community Fusion (DCF) is a Community Interest Company (CIC) established in 2019. It operates throughout the Scottish Borders. A CIC is a special type of limited company which exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders. DCF’s aim is to make a positive difference to people’s lives. They are interested in developing new solutions which help marginalised groups to engage and participate in society to fullest possible extent.
Collaboration is at the heart of everything they do. Using existing relationships with established organisations and creating new relationships to challenge and address unmet needs helps DCF deliver a service where they can enhance people’s quality of life.
To help achieve their goals in the best way possible, DCF collaborates with Scottish employability and education provider Triage, with Triage providing access to resources and know how. DCF and Triage are associates companies, sharing the same non-executive directors.
The Development Manager will take the lead role in developing and growing DCF and its operations ensuring more people are supported across the Country. The main purpose of this role is to deliver development, growth, and diversification to DCF. A key element of the role is to help develop solutions which are deliverable and fundable, in order to make a positive impact to those who require assistance.
You will work closely with local government partners and other service commissioners (e.g., National Lottery Community Fund) to develop and/or respond to opportunities that positively impact on the lives of more individuals and communities. You will actively research and contribute to tenders/bids and support cross organisational teamwork to achieve overarching business objectives whilst developing or advancing new business based on emergent markets.
The Development Manager will essentially sit at the top of the team and could progress to be Managing Director in the future. This is a really exciting role to make the role your own.
To be successful in the role, you will ideally have experience working in a development capacity or experience with working in the social economy. You will have the ability to think creatively and fashion new solutions to societal changes as well as having knowledge of competitive markets where opportunities for development exist. The Development Manager will be someone who can work with pace and purpose and be an excellent negotiator. This is a hugely rewarding role for the right individual who is seeking an opportunity to make their mark in Business Development with a social purpose. You will need to be highly driven with strong analytical skills and a creative mindset in order to succeed in the role.
