Business Development Manager
Corporate Traveller is rapidly growing and is now seeking Business Development Managers to join their growing teams in Newcastle. Corporate Traveller has been voted the Business Travel Agency of the Year in the TTG Travel Awards.
If successful, you'll be offered a position within one of our Manchester teams, where your main responsibility will be to introduce our business travel management service to companies that spend between £50,000 - £2M on international travel each year.
Once you've got a new client on board, you'll work closely with a team of experienced business travel consultants, who will use their expertise and unbeatable knowledge of airfares to book your client's travel, saving them both time and money.
This position involves sourcing leads through research and networking events, qualifying your leads and making an appointment over the phone, and closing the deal with a face-to-face meeting. Therefore, you'll need to have experience in sales, the proven ability to meet your targets, and the confidence and drive to find and close new opportunities. You'll also gain four weeks of comprehensive training at our Head Office in London before you begin your full time position in Newcastle.
