New Business Development Manager - Central London.

Cyber has become an almost meaningless term, much as Digital before it. Most individuals or companies are told that Cyber is about technology. It’s not. It’s about managing risk.

My client is a professional services firm that specialises in risk. Our services span Business Intelligence, Investigations and Cyber. Our client works with an array of Private and Corporate clients across a range of functions. From Reputational Management for an UHWNI to Cyber Wargames with the board of a large Private Equity Firm. From securing a Superyacht in Monaco to advising a Central Bank in Africa.

Our client is growing fast and as part of our continued growth we wish to appoint a New Business Development Manager. We have several strong niche markets that need to be secured whilst also entering into new sectors. This role is pivotal in winning new business within those chosen verticals.

Reporting to the Head of Business Development, the New Business Development Manager will be targeted with a specific niche or vertical. They will work closely with our marketing agency to target very well defined markets with strategic communications to assist in winning new business.

Although some account management will be required the main focus of this role is winning new clients.

We are genuinely open to the background of candidates but the following is essential:
• Provable track record of selling to CEOs and Chairs
• Clear understanding of how business works
• Strong interest or experience in becoming an expert within a particular
vertical
• Background in selling services
• Gravitas and authority

Although we are open to the background of the candidate some suggestions might be:
• Professional Services
• Legal
• Technology (although will need to have contained a service led element)
• Risk Management
• Business Intelligence
• Public Relations
• Private Equity

Although Professional Services firms always prefer the term Business Development, this is not only a sales role, but a new client sales role.

Salary and benefits:
• A competitive salary and package aligned to market rates and including
annual review;
• An annual, performance linked bonus;
• 25 days annual leave;
• Medical insurance;
• Company pension (10% + voluntary employee contribution);
• Subsidised gym membership (50%).
