Business Development Manager
We’re looking for a Business Development Manager to join our client who are not just about finding places; they’re about creating unforgettable experiences!
You will be collaborating with event agencies and freelancers to craft exceptional moments for global brands like Burberry, Dom Perignon, Jaguar Land Rover, Hermes, Nike, and even Fifa!
Your role? It’s all about relationships. You’ll be the maestro of maintaining and nurturing connections with event agencies and freelancers, ensuring their partners are thrilled to work with them time and time again.
They work in a very competitive market, but what really sets them apart is their venue-finding expertise and portfolio of properties. You could get lost for hours on their website looking at some of the breath taking and unique locations they have in the portfolio.
You’re going to work with a mixture of new and existing clients, so we’re looking for someone with both a hunting and farming mentality. We need someone who knows how to open doors and be at the forefront of people’s minds when they need a venue.
You will be someone who enjoys working independently, as you grow the event segment of the agency, (with the full support of their talented team obviously) so you will need to have an entrepreneurial spirit. It’s not the kind of job where you wait for things to drop on your lap – you are the person that goes out and makes things happen.
Your responsibilities will span managing pipelines, nurturing new and existing relationships, expertly matching requirements with jaw-dropping properties and event locations, whilst being the person that clients want to know (due to your vibrant personality and industry knowledge).
We’re looking for someone who knows the event agency world inside out, understands the venue sourcing process and buying triggers. Having a book of contacts would be massively beneficial to get you going very quickly, but there is an existing database (Salesforce) you can use.
The office is based in central London (Zone 1), you will spend time out seeing existing and new clients, as well as working from home each Friday. They’re really sensible about flexibility so you will never feel like you’re chained to a desk!
The salary will range from £30,000 to £35,000, depending on your experience. On top of this you will earn uncapped commission, which could reasonably see you make 6 figures in your first year.
If you are interested or want to know more, call me, send me a message, DM or e-mail – whatever is easiest. We encourage anyone who feels they are suitable to apply, we love seeing diversity in our applicants. We use specialist technology to ensure there is no gender bias in our adverts.
Every applicant will receive a response. We sometimes make mistakes and miss things from CVs, so you will be given an opportunity to receive feedback and discuss the role in more detail if you feel necessary.
