New Business Executive / New Business Manager
We are working with a food and tech start up business who have been trading for 10 months, and are growing at pace.

It's a huge success story and they are growing at pace.
They've recently tested their commercial model, which focuses around selling cooking experiences direct to corporate teams and businesses and the feedback was been excellent. It's time to grow this part of the business and they're looking to bring on board a New Business Executive / New Business Manager who can help lead and grow this part of the business.
They have created cooking experiences for businesses of all shapes and sizes - management consultancies, commercial property businesses, executive management teams, tech companies, student properties and creative agencies. The model works, and the experience for businesses works!
