Good Care Guide is the trip advisor of the care industry and was launched early 2012. It is up and running but needs a leader, you. It's a great opportunity and a broad range of commercial and people skills are essential. 
 
We're looking for someone who:

  • Wants to run their own business
  • Has the drive to push the sales process
  • Has the intellectual capacity to understand the broader challenges and opportunities to develop the business accordingly.

Honest user opinion is a fact of every day life and informs nearly every buying decision. All the leading review sites have developed successful models across the sectors.

The childcare and eldercare industries have been very slow to embrace the idea of user feedback because they are fragmented and conservative.  Good Care Guide has gained significant traction and was re-launched in April 2013.  We now need you to help us get to that next level.
 
Whilst you would be leading the business you would be well supported by an existing sales team and other resources drawn from the wider business including:

  • Admin support
  • Web development
  • Social media
  • Accounts
  • Marketing
 
The role would include: 

  • Running the team - 5 direct reports
  • Selling - not only running the sales manager but also being the spokesperson for the site
  • Handling of key accounts
  • Fund raising - the business is now ready for external investment.  A key part of the role would be leading the fund-raising.  We have investors lined up once you are in place
  • Strategy and development.  This is key.  The site has been well developed but there are any number of possible ways we can develop and grow the business and understanding the possibilities of the revenue model are vital.  Common sense and an understanding of numbers are important.
 
If this sounds like you we'd love to hear from you. For more info click on the Application Instructions.
