Job Description

This is a business development role with a difference. In fact, there's that many leads coming in to capitalise on, it's almost not a business development role at all. So if you're a Business Development Manager who's excited by the prospect of building relationships with globally recognised clients and working with them on cutting edge digital activity, you'll want to read on.

This is without question one of the best opportunities for an experienced Business Development Manager that you'll come across, where, if successful, you'd be working with some of the most brilliant digital talent the industry has to offer, for one of the UK's most exciting digital teams.

Never content just to stand still this agency has continuously sought to evolve its offer and has built an enviable client list, packed full of case studies that exude innovative thinking in the digital space.

As Business Development Manager you'll be working for a hugely ambitious agency and be given significant backing for driving their growth plans and client acquisition activity. This isn't one of those traditional cold calling roles, it's far more about building partnerships with prospective clients (most of which are already warm prospects) and nurturing them through the funnel.

You'll be responsible for all aspects of business development - identifying targets, nurturing prospects, scoping out potential needs, developing pitches etc. All with the support of an outstanding marketing function, together with first rate strategic insight, not to mention a client base of instantly recognisable names, meaning you'll be armed with an exceptional portfolio of case histories with which to dazzle prospects. All in all, a compelling proposition.

To be considered, you must have a passion for building exceptional client partnerships and a proven ability to develop new relationships, win trust and convert this in to new revenue. Commercial drive is therefore paramount, as is a strategic and consultative approach to business development. It's essential that you have a proven track record of new business success in an agency, consultancy or tech environment, with a clear passion for the digital space and you'll need to be adept at engaging with clients at all levels and spotting opportunities at every corner.

In return you'll be working in one of the most exciting digital teams in the UK, where there will be significant opportunities to play a pivotal role in achieving and exceeding their ambitions. All within fabulous surroundings, working alongside some of the very best talent in the industry.

A genuinely fantastic opportunity that you'd be hard pressed to beat and crazy to miss out on. Apply now in the strictest of confidence for immediate consideration.
