Job Description - Business Development Executive

Wiser Graduates are hiring for the role of Business Development Executive, for one of the fastest growing Tech start-ups in the UK.

If you have some sales experience; whether that be in retail, telesales, fundraising, or any other type of sales, and you're keen to take your career to the next level, then we are looking for you!

The Role:

The role of Business Development Executive is a business to business sales role, that will require you to complete the following tasks, to the highest possible standard:

• Strategically map the market, and looking for potential areas of growth within the business.

• Create a sales plan, to logically and intelligently target the most profitable areas of the market, and deliver on opportunity.

• Approach sales opportunities through a number of avenues available to you. These will include: Linkedin networking, cold calling, pitching to new business, attending networking events etc.

Close deals and negotiate the best possible terms for your company.

• Represent the company to the highest possible professional standard.

• Explore and grow new areas of business, and create your own opportunity to expand your business within the company.

• Work autonomously, with the freedom to plan your own working week, and deliver results in the way that you work best.

This role will be like running your own business. There will be extensive training available to you, and our client offers constant learning and development for all members of staff, but this role gives you the freedom to work without being micro-managed. There are no KPI's and constant reviews over arbitrary performance indicators. You are judged solely on your results, and the numbers will speak for themselves.

The Client:

Our client is one of the fastest growing Tech companies in the UK. Our client started in 2012, and since then has become one of the most exciting companies in the UK to work for. The company grew by 120% last year, and is due to keep growing at an exponential rate.

Our client is a very 'young' company. The entire management team of team leaders and top billers are all under 28 years old. They all started their careers at the bottom, and have worked their way up to the top in under 3 years, with opportunity to progress into senior management relatively quickly. This opportunity is open to you as well. All you need is the right work ethic, and the ambition to go all the way to the top!

Our client has beautiful offices in the business district in central London. The location is perfect, being under 10 minutes walking distance from 3 different tube stops, and having an abundance of bars, restaurants and clubs means that you can work hard, but also play hard.

Our client has a relaxed office feel. It's not a boiler room environment, but rather promotes creativity, individualism, and entrepreneurial ambition. A flexible working day, combined with bright, open plan offices, and a dress-down culture, means that you don't feel pressured to sit on the phone like a robot. You are encouraged to think outside the box, and work in the way that you find most productive.

The Benefits:

This role, and our client offer a massive array of benefits. Some of these include:

• Competitive £20-25k base salary.

Generous commission

• Extensive training and development across all areas of business. Allowing for progression and diversification of the role.

• A clear and achievable progression structure that encourages promotion.

• A year 1 OTE of up to £40k.

• Annual summer holiday and ski trip to all who hit targets.

Gym membership and discount on Bicycles from most retailers.

But this role isn't just about the perks. This job will enable you to enjoy coming into work every day, and be excited by what you can achieve day in day out. The bonuses just sweeten the deal.

To Apply:

If you feel like you're someone who would enjoy the challenge of running their own business, and want high earning potential, but is willing to put the work in that's required to achieve it, then apply now!
