This consultancy firm consisting of 3 previous partners from a FTSE 250 listed company is looking to bring in 2 trainee Business Development Executives to help capitalise on their pre-existing accounts and further develop relations with new clients.

Having reached a level of seniority in their previous company the partners saw a niche gap in the financial market for a more consultative approach within their respective niches.

You will also offer internal sales support for pre-defined territory locations and also have the responsibility to go out on client meetings as well to help win new business including international business trips with their pre-exsiting client base.
