Business Development Manager - pioneering media agency
Those of you with experience will know that business development can be a fairly lonely role in certain agencies, where expectations can be high as can be the pressure. However, make no mistake, should you be successful in your endeavours, you have the power to change the fortunes for many…. And I could quote a line out of Spiderman…. “with great power….” Well you get it gist.
Keeping the above in mind we have a Business Development Manager opportunity that is somewhat different.
Our client is a very large media agency that has dominated the market for decades and continues to grow by redefining media through command of media coverage.
This opportunity to become a Business Development Manager would see you as part of an experienced and supported new business team. Consisting of executives, support staff and other Business Development Managers and Directors. This is a home where you can truly see you career develop and aim for promotion or even relocations further down the line.
Your role as Business Development Manager will fundamentally be to lead, manage and convert global, regional and multi market new business pitches. As well as helping local markets in their pursuit of major local business.
With the sheer diversity in this role you’ll never be bored and always be learning new trends and insights about the markets you work with.
Now for the obvious part… what our client is seeking:
- Ideally you will have a minimum of three years’ experience within New Business, gained whilst working at a media agency.
- You should be confident in your ability to run large scale pitches as well as develop strategic plans.
- Excellent written and verbal communications with the ability to create and package strong presentations.
- Due to this ambitious nature of the media agency you should also be hungry to see your career develop. They really like ambitious and outgoing characters who like to act with freedom, yet proactive whilst keeping things simple.
In return for your experience and expertise as a Business Development Manager our client offers a very competitive salary ranging between £40-50k plus an extremely long list of benefits, which puts our own in the shade.
