Regional Manager - Midlands and Eastern

Home Based
Fixed Term Contract until December 2022

About us

Would it inspire you to see the tangible impact of your work on the world? To work for an organisation that is committed to making a positive difference for people globally? If so, we could be the organisation for you. We are the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership.

About the role

The role of Regional Manager is an important one – it’ll be your job to extend the work and reach of the CIOB across the Midlands and Eastern region through the development of active communities (including Local Hubs), providing local member support with a focus on member retention / engagement and excellent customer service. You’ll develop and manage regional activity including; stakeholder relationships, member progression support, business plans / budgets, an engaging and valuable programme of CPD / events, workshops, management of Member Services & Events Coordinators and working closely with the super region team. You’ll be a conduit for corporate information to the Local Hub committees, ensuring goals and objectives of the Institute are delivered.

About You

We’re looking for someone who has demonstrable experience in a similar role, with excellent customer service skills and experience of building and maintaining excellent customer relationships. A confident presenter, we’d love it if you bring to the role experience of promoting products or services, but regardless you’ll be an excellent all-round communicator with the ability to adjust your communication style to a wide range of audiences and levels of seniority, and have a passion for networking and building and maintaining relationships.

A strong people manager, able to manage, coach and develop a remote team, you’ll be comfortable when it comes to making decisions and have proven experience of managing own workload along with those of others. With good financial management skills to include business planning, budgets and forecasting, you’ll be proficient in MS Office, internal systems and social media and have demonstrable experience of management of data within a CRM system.

Experience of construction and the built environment sector or within a professional body is preferred but certainly not essential.

Candidates will ideally reside within the Midlands / Eastern area as you will be required to travel across the region as part of your role.

Why Work For Us?

We can offer you not only the opportunity to make a real difference with the work you do, but the chance to do that in a friendly, flexible and welcoming working environment, where we’ll show you that we’re committed to your personal wellbeing and to your development within your role. We also hold a Silver Investors in People Award – which we really hope will show you our commitment to you as an employee.

Last but not least, we’ll offer you a fantastic range of benefits which we are really pleased to list below:

  • Generous Holiday - Your work/life balance is important and time away from work to rest and recharge is vital to your wellbeing and general happiness, so we are pleased to offer when you start 25 days plus bank holidays, which will then increase with service years all the way up to 29 days! We also tend to close over the Christmas period so you could look to see an extra 3-4 days off each year as well, which is on top of your basic holiday as mentioned above.
  • Birthday Day Off - No need to use your base holiday to book your birthday off, we are pleased to add one extra day for you to take on/near your birthday as well.
  • Length of service anniversary day off - We want to celebrate length of service at the CIOB, so we offer a day off in the year you achieve each subsequent five-year length of service anniversary (for example 15, 20 or 25 years)
  • Pension Contribution and Pension Advice - Alongside your health and wellbeing, we believe strongly that it’s important for all of us to plan for the future, so we are really proud to make a contribution on your behalf via our pension scheme. In addition, we also work with and pay for professional pension advisors to help offer you advice on your pension.
  • Employee Assistance Programme - Sometimes we need help and don’t know where to look for it. The service gives you confidential telephone helplines available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Private Medical Insurance - In addition to all that the NHS can offer, our comprehensive medical insurance cover offers access to private medical treatment and facilities; often leading to a quicker diagnosis and treatment.
  • Health Cash Plan - This scheme allows you to claim cashback for everyday healthcare needs such as dental check-ups, eye tests, physio treatment and much more up to specific annual limits. This scheme also offers other retail and leisure discounts!
  • Life Assurance - we offer a multiple of your Basic Annual Salary, as per your contract.
  • Learning and Development - We’ll make sure you are constantly learning and developing with us, whether it be a qualification/training course or simply learning from others at team CIOB- your development is important and we invest a lot of time a money into this!
