Birdie is a pioneer in social innovation. Our vision is to build a society in which we all age with confidence. With a rapidly growing ageing population, overcrowded care homes and social care services under water, we’re facing a social crisis. We ’re on a mission to reinvent care so that older generations can live longer, healthier and happier in their own homes, surrounded by their families and their communities. We use digital products, cutting-edge home connected devices and AI to empower the care community to deliver better, preventative care
Launched in 2017, Birdie is a team of 60 socially motivated care, health, product and tech entrepreneurs. We were nominated one of the top 10 UK startups to watch, the SME with the best culture in the UK and one of the top healthtech startups in Europe.
We are building the organisation of the future that will not only improve the lives of millions of older adults but also of our team members, our communities and will protect the environment. We demonstrate our values in everything we do. We care; we succeed together; we grow individually and strive for excellence; we are smart, brave and ambitious; and we nurture fun and a little quirkiness.
We are looking for a Head of Sales to support and develop Birdie’s sales team, reporting to the Chief Commercial Officer. You’ll take responsibility for building your sales team, onboarding, coaching and developing your team to success, motivating and inspiring your team to achieve their goals, and optimising our sales cycle. You’ll be hands-on with the sales team, but will also need to drive strategic initiatives, whether directly within sales, or working closely with other functions such as Product, Customer Success and Marketing.
