NewcastleGateshead Initiative is one of the leading destination marketing organisations in the UK. It is a highly successful and well respected public private partnership encompassing leisure & business tourism, inward investment and festivals & events. NewcastleGateshead Initiative is also in effect a full service marketing agency offering a unique blend of products and services to diverse sectors.

This is a newly created business development role with a clear remit to grow commercial income by actively marketing existing products and services, whilst also exploring other potential new sources of funding. 

As a member of the Senior Management Team you will use your business knowledge, networks and contacts to open doors with targeted customers and key decision makers to secure new business opportunities for delivery by NewcastleGateshead Initiative and it’s newly created trading subsidiary, NGI Solutions Limited.

Clearly a strong background in business development and income generation is essential, but the role will suit an experienced and entrepreneurial marketer who can identify opportunities, meet customer expectations and deliver income targets. Experience of working with a wide range of public and private sector clients in an agency or professional services setting would be advantageous.
