Community Business Bureau

Community Business Bureau (CBB) is a national social enterprise committed to helping the not-for-profit sector to achieve its social objectives by providing personalised, professional and cost effective services focused on building capacity and enhancing sustainability.  

CBB’s business consulting service seeks to build the business capability and market orientation of the not for profit sector through access to high quality consultants with senior experience in running organisations and key business functions. Consulting activity includes business and financial models, organisational strategy, change management, people and culture, marketing and operational management. Consulting is delivered through fee for service projects for individual organisations, and on multi-agency programs, under major grants and contracts. Consulting approaches include research and analysis, training and facilitation, and coaching of senior and emerging leaders, via online and face to face engagements. 

Reporting to the General Manager, Consulting and Business Services, this role will deliver consulting services to CBB’s not for profit client organisations as part of a multidisciplinary team of business consultants. Key responsibilities include:

  • proactively developing new client business and maintaining relationships with existing clients;

  • contributing to the ongoing development and continuous improvement of CBB consulting products and programs, to ensure they continue to provide contemporary and impactful solutions for clients;
  • informing CBB’s consulting practice through a sound understanding of the sector, the issues that affect it, and best practice solutions.

Applications are sought from appropriately qualified individuals with demonstrated success in delivering consulting services at a senior level. In order to balance the skills across CBB’s consulting team, applications are particularly welcome from candidates who balance leadership experience in marketing and/or market-orientated business strategy, and a ‘whole of business’ perspective. This person needs the skills and experience to develop new business and to deliver sound advisory services for customer centred and tailored outcomes. A collaborative and outcomes focused approach is critical in building credibility with clients and stakeholders, as is a genuine passion for driving business success. Exceptional interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills, high level facilitation/training skills, commercial acumen and an unwavering commitment to client service will ensure success in the role. Amongst the qualities sought are resilience, energy, authenticity, sound judgement, diplomacy and agility.
