The Collins English dictionary describes ‘commerciality’ as follows.

“commercial quality or character; ability to produce a profit”

To be honest, I could end this advert there as that’s what this role is all about.

You see, wise, savvy and successful leaders know that being responsible for growth isn’t all about sales, it’s also about profit.

They know it’s not just what you put into the funnel, it’s what comes out the other side.

These leaders also know that always hitting the moon is way better than reaching for the stars.  

It’s why this role has been created.

To support a business development team who might need you to reign them in at times, but also give them all the tools to let them fly close to the wind when needed.

To oversee a client services team who need your insight and guidance to organically grow their portfolio without coming across like all pushy sales peeps and annoying long standing client relationships.

To be the face the client never sees when things are running smoothly, and the face they don’t want to see when stuff gets bumpy.

Sitting on the SLT and reporting into the MD also means using both sides of your brain as understanding the importance of creativity, the brand and corporate clients is just as important as understanding the P&L implications of all the moving parts.

Running a team of 20 with 5 direct reports, also calls for coaching skills alongside business acumen.

So, if you like the idea of being the champion of standards, the flag bearer of best practise and most importantly, the person who buys the first round of drinks for the team, then apply and let’s have a confidential chat.

Don’t worry if your CV isn’t up to date, we can deal with that later.
