The role is responsible for managing all internal and external contacts/enquires relating to workplace and employer interest in commercial propositions. Whilst the role is primarily business development it will also manage the delivery of audits and reports, either virtual or in-person, required to achieve accreditation and guide organisations through self-assessment.
