Contract Type:

I’m working with a specialist marketing agency who are looking for a Business Development Manager to fuel further growth within their niche sector.

The company works internationally with a number of well known universities, academic institutions and research companies, putting together bespoke creative work to showcase research analysis and results in an attractive and easy to understand way. The company has an excellent creative proposition, and is now looking for a talented Business Development Manager who can help them reach the next level of growth.

Your role as Business Development Manager will, broadly speaking, consist of the following;

Searching for and engaging with relevant clients within the research / academic sectors in order to win new business and opportunities to pitch. This could be through research partners, marketing teams or other methods depending on the prospect.
Leveraging existing relationships in order to bring new work to the agency outside of their core areas.
Looking for new opportunities to expand the creative offering both in the UK and overseas.

You will be a vital part of a small and growing business, although as part of a wider group of companies the business is well backed and has excellent support in place to achieve their goals. As a big part of a small team, its vial that you have the drive and determination to succeed as well as being able to understand the dynamics of the agency.

To be considered for this role you should have at least three years experience of working in a business development role for a creative agency of some kind, ideally with an affinity towards academic and research clients. You will be someone who is a confident new business hunter who can sniff out new opportunities and forge meaningful long term relationships. Other backgrounds will also be considered if you have extensive experience of selling a solution based product into a similar market.

If this sounds like you, please apply today!
