The firm is fully committed and indeed excited about their new team, keen for experienced and driven professionals to guide them in business development. They're keen for strategic direction and thus are looking for a Business Development Manager ideally to be based in either London or Manchester but they will also consider Bristol and Cambridge applicants.
A broad business development role, you will be taking a lead on the development of strategic BD and client plans for individuals and 'champion' groups of partners.
