​We have an incredible opportunity available for a proven BDM to join a newly formed brand, spun out of a parent company who have amassed an incredible global presence and customer base across specific Finance and Tech verticals. We are looking to hire a highly skilled Business Development Manager to lead the international client build specifically within the Renewable Energies and Sustainability markets.

Through partnership with both current and future companies that are leading the global transition to a more sustainable world, our client's ambition is to become an integral partner to the wider sustainable eco-system. Their role is to play a pivotal part in enabling meaningful conversations for industry leaders to discuss and debate (market insights and trends). This involvement in thought leadership enables our client to provide innovative and forward-thinking solutions to their customer's hiring concerns that they may not have even considered yet.

Their approach to work life is incredibly refreshing and they aim to provide a platform for highly motivated employees who value developing deep market expertise, career development, collaboration, and progression. They have a dress down policy, flexible working hours and mature working environment provides a refreshing change from the rigid, corporate environments commonly found in the industry.

About the role:

  • Scaling an existing client base of a business operating across the Renewable Energy and Sustainability verticals on a global basis, with a particular focus on Europe and & North America

  • Working with Senior Management to set and execute strategic business development strategies

  • Using sales, business development and networking activity form partnerships to attract business from relevant companies

  • Mapping & prospecting new clients and fostering relationships to achieve repeat business accounts

  • Attending/contributing towards industry conferences, networking events, roundtable discussions

  • Analysis & identification of new market segment opportunities

  • Account expansion

  • Clear presentation of our services in business meetings (local & international)

  • Targeted content and collateral creation

  • Delivery of brand engagement strategies

Key credentials we are looking for:

  • An entrepreneurial spirit - the kind of commercial acumen that comes only from that of a 'thought leader'

  • 5 years + business development experience within B2B consultative sales environment

  • Strong track record in Stakeholder engagement and management

  • Experience of winning and developing accounts

  • Ambition and self determination to scale out a successful recruiting, client services business

  • Excellent time management, communication and organisation skills

  • Strong analytical and written skills

  • Strong self-awareness and passion for self-development

  • Innovative & creative approach

  • Prior success in complex sales negotiations; entire projects, "statements of work"

Perhaps you at a point of your career where you want to remove the shackles of corporate life and use that level of experience gained in from your B2B successes in a refreshing, exciting, untapped space. Working for an organisation who want to back you and see you succeed should wet the appetite of the very best BDM's in the market. An opportunity not to ignore. Contact Liam for a further conversation.

The role is home based with an office presence required on a weekly basis. Preferred location is a relatively easy commute to South London.
