Business Development Manager
Website YOU Exclusive
Are you a business development manager looking for a new challenge and want to work with a strategic storytelling consultancy that are experts in harnessing the power and magic of storytelling?!
Course you do!
Given their breadth of experience and reputation in the market, when you pitch to people – they sit up and listen.
You won’t be scrabbling around looking for clients and low hanging fruit– you will be pitching to in demand brands on solutions which are typically £250,000+, with sales cycles that can be from a month, right up to years.
These folks have an impressive back catalogue, so when you’re talking to a new prospect you can rest assured there will be a great case study in their portfolio already that you can draw upon.
You will be targeting internal comms directors/marketing directors and sometimes c-suite level people in businesses who typically have headcounts over 5000. You will need to be someone who is comfortable operating at this level and can demonstrate the ability to build relationships and convert them in to deals, without being a hard seller.
In my opinion, this position is going to suit someone who is a huge fan of the creative space and keeps up with trends and understands the power of storytelling.
You will be someone who thrives on not being micromanaged and needing your hand held throughout the process. You’re working with an incredible team of creatives and a very talented creative director – so will have plenty of support around you.
You’re going to look after the full sales cycle, from identifying suitable prospects, to researching, right through to initial contact, then pitching and closing.
This is a predominately remote based role, but you will need to go into the office (in Wandsworth) when required. Some weeks it may be zero times, some weeks it’ll be 2 or 3 days – your flexibility is required on this.
You will get a basic salary of between £45,000 – £55,000, with commission on top which could reasonably see you double your base! There are a raft of other benefits, not to mention the fact you’re working with BAFTA nominated comedians!
