Business Development Officer

Liverpool Biennial is seeking an enthusiastic and proactive Business Development Officer to cultivate and steward high-value relationships.

You will work with the Director of Development and their dynamic team to develop partnerships with public and private sector companies and individuals, diversitying Liverpool Biennial's income streams.  You will also contribute to the promotion of the Biennial at external events with the aim of identifying and targeting new potential sponsors and funders.
