Commercial Director (Part-time)
A part-time resource with all the benefits of a full-time employee without the cost and risk
If you have grown your business to £1m-£3M I am sure you will be discovering that to get to £5M-£10M takes a different approach. The secret to making this jump is more about taking the right interventions, rather than increasing your team.
This is exactly what a part-time outsourced Commercial Director can deliver for you. They will also ease your time pressures, support your manager’s step up, and can be pulled in for additional days if needed on specific projects or grant applications for example.
This is a cost-effective, flexible resource, that provides you with a trusted third party you can speak with about anything. Based in your office they quickly become part of your team and drive growth.
Are you experiencing growing pains?
Just because you are still a small business should not be a barrier to getting the correct expertise you need, so that you can get past those growing pains you are feeling. These growing pains may include:
Direction – Where is your company going, what is it your customers want and what do you want? How will this translate into how your company operates and what your team does in the future?
Growth – What should your focus on for growth in the future? Is it about increasing revenues, building asset value, or reducing costs that give you greater profits?
Execution – What is it you need to do to deliver the future you want and in what order do you do things? How do you manage this change and make the future more predictable?
Team – Your team is growing and you are no longer sure what they do with all their time. It appears they are always busy, but they are not achieving the same outcomes and results as you did in the role in past years.
Pivot – If you keep doing what you have always done competitors will overtake you. You don’t want to pivot/change and don’t know how to innovate.
Time – As your company has grown you have employed staff to help out. Despite the new hires, there is still too much on your plate and the overwhelm is disheartening and frustrating.
