Business Development Manager

You will be the business face of the enterprise; to seek and secure funding by way of contacts, social media, website and other marketing initiatives; develop strategy; drive the transformation of the company; handle routine business and Intellectual Property rights; report to the Board and the inventor.

We envisage the work as being at first part-time and largely from a home office (approximately 20 hours per week) though with weekly or fortnightly meetings in Central London. There will be opportunities later for a growing role in the enterprise, if desired, including full-time, permanent employment.

Salary GBP25k plus expenses and performance bonuses

Skills and experience that will be required:
Business development including financing and marketing
Good communication skills with senior business executives
Able to work independently with standard PC software tools

Skills that will be advantageous:
Graphic design for print and digital media
Able to interface with designers and engineers

Invention:
A stationary, convex mirror that reflects sunlight directly or obliquely downwards to its 'target' area, and is so shaped that this re-direction of sunlight occurs, without any adjustment of the mirror, whenever the sun is shining. The 'target' may be a courtyard, garden, recreational area, greenhouse, solar panel array, etc. By increasing incident light and radiant energy it increases plant growth or other usefulness or productivity, at costs which are minimal for maintenance and zero for energy.
Convex   -   no glare, no focussing, no overheating. The materials are light-weight and inexpensive. Stationary  -  no moving parts. 
This is the greenest invention since chlorophyll: we call it a SunDownLoader or Garden Sky-Light. See www.sundownloader.com

Company:
Your employer will be Sky-Light Garden Ltd, which holds all rights for Britain; we envisage the first objective to be securing support from UK entrepreneurs. For someone who has imagination, flair, interest in what the invention can do and can make the right contacts, there is scope for expansion to the whole world and a wide range of applications, with a high degree of personal control over the shape of that development.

Expressions of interest:
Apply with your CV in the first instance with a covering letter and contact telephone numbers for two referees. We shall reply to favoured candidates at least, hopefully to all, with more detail of the invention and project.
