You are so entrepreneurial you make Alan Sugar nervous… You’d never turn down a proposition without doing the right level of due diligence and analysis, to assess its viability.

BGL Group are looking for a Manager to join our New Ventures Team. It’s a small team but a very ambitious one! Working with Executive Management and Senior Stakeholders across the business to help drive our propositions of the future really excites you.

You could be at the heart of a venture that could drive this business into the stratosphere!

This opportunity will offer you the chance of participating in a variety of projects, where you will find yourself:

  • Identifying and analysing new markets and product verticals for the business
  • Uncovering new & innovative start-ups for partnership and minority investment
  • Running internal proposition design missions with external partners
  • Strategically reviewing business strategies
  • Contributing to the Corporate Strategy Team on M&A projects
  • Assisting with the preparation of Board & Exec papers
  • Supporting and developing junior members of the team

What will it take to be successful as a New Ventures Manager?

Your entrepreneurial and inquisitive nature combined with your business acumen isn’t just second nature to you… It’s got you where you are today!

If you come from an Innovation, Product Management, VC or Corporate Development environment, have strong business modelling skills and sound financial analysis experience, we certainly want to hear from you.

The role does have its demands, just like any. But, as someone who has strong communication and relationship building skills combined with your experience of strategic planning and insight, you’ll be able to manage people’s expectations and successfully deliver projects.
