Business Development Manager

£40,000 - £60,000

PLEASE CONTACT

Claire Donaldson

As Give A Grad A Go's Team Leader, I am responsible for leading a team of four Consultants and two Resourcers. It’s my job to make sure that my team are supported, getting all the help they need in order to grow within the business, as well as managing my own client base.

My area of expertise

My team and I work with clients within a huge array of sectors - including FinTech, Recruitment, FMCG and Retail to name a few. We are also building a solid client base within some emerging markets including MedTech, HealthTech, EdTech and InsurTech (everything tech!)

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I came in to the office to discuss which graduate jobs might be right for me, and realised straight away that my ideal place to work would be somewhere like Give A Grad A Go. I’d started the job hunt looking at Marketing & Advertising roles, but soon realised that a role in Recruitment would offer me the exact opportunities I was looking for - networking with clients, being rewarded for hard work and chatting with graduates and clients on the phone. After spending 3 memorable hours in the office, Cary offered me a job and I accepted straight away! I’ve now been here for 3 years - and counting!

The worst job I've had

Every summer I worked on a local farm as a waitress. The role had it perks (lots of hefty bacon butties) - but mucking out the barns and the smell of manure really took its toll....

Are you searching for sales jobs in London and looking to take the next step in your career? An impressive technology startup, who help high-profile companies maximise government funding, are looking to grow their team. If you have 3 years’ sales experience and you want to work for an innovative FinTech business, this Business Development Manager job could be for you!

As they continue to grow, the company are now looking to find a Business Development Manager with at least 3 years’ sales experience, to join their dynamic and ambitious sales team.

Job description

In this Business Development Manager job, you will be expected to quickly gain an understanding of funding schemes, and thereafter use that knowledge to speak to founders, CTOs and CFOs to find the best funding solution. You will be liaising with prospective clients, conducting meetings and creating proposals, whilst maintaining an exceptionally high closing rate by giving every prospect a bespoke solution that meets their exact needs. Throughout the sales process, you will be building up your knowledge of tax, learning about company funding journeys, and becoming familiar with the innovative technologies that clients are building.

  • A minimum of 3 years’ experience winning business and closing deals, either in a sales role or something equivalent, such as running your own business
  • Evidence of nurturing excellent relationships with senior individuals (founders, CTOs, CEOs) on the phone and in person, and the ability to navigate organisations to reach them if necessary
