An exceptional career opportunity … for an ambitious, results driven sales professional

This opportunity is aimed at attracting an experienced and exceptionally high calibre individual with the ability to generate quality business opportunities (leads) via telephone and email communication.

The role entails initiating contact with targeted B2B prospects, at senior/director level, through effective questioning and engagement, with the aim of securing face to face appointments.

The Business Development Executive Role:

As a customer focused, results-orientated, business to business organisation, working across a wide range of industry sectors, our target audience is predominantly at the senior management/board level of large and blue chip companies … decision makers and high level influencers in organisations such as M&S Money, BT, Shell, Pilkington, Hills Petcare, Honda (UK), Close Brothers, Prudential and Volvo Trucks - to name but a few of our customers.

* Your job is to seek out like-minded people, of the right calibre, vision and integrity, who have front line responsibility (and purchasing power) for delivering sustainable business growth … and to create that crucial “connectivity” necessary for them to agree to engage with us at that all important face to face level.

* Following up on a variety of marketing-led initiatives, your job is to target and seamlessly engage these key influencers and decision-makers, through your exceptional relationship building skills on the telephone (making friends with the gate-keepers in the process!) and secure qualified appointments on behalf of our business development team.

* Conducting research and reviewing various and current business articles with a view to identifying potential ‘high priority’ targets to contact (both verbally via the telephone and literally in writing).

The ideal Business Development Executive will be:

* You are self-motivated, customer-oriented, sales focused and a persuasive expeditor, with the ability to communicate credibility and create a positive and enthusiastic first impression.

* Ambitious, articulate and versatile, you are adept at opening up and developing meaningful dialogue on the telephone.

* As well as being a natural relationship builder, you possess an appropriate blend of patience, vision, self-belief and drive to achieve the right outcomes.

* Able to write high quality, clear, concise, compelling and commercially minded (as well as Sales focused) communications. This forms a significant part of the role.

Business Development Executive Qualification and skill level:

To be successful in this role you must demonstrate the following skills, knowledge and attributes:-


Commercially astute, tenacious and creative in your approach


Understand the intricacies of organisational change and its impact on people and performance


Willingness to work collaboratively as a member of a team


Possess a positive “can do” attitude


Exceptional telephone manner


Attention to detail, with meticulous follow-through

What we do is unique, inspirational and world class - so too is our team.
