Full Time

Due to rapid growth and plans for continued expansion, there is now an exciting opportunity for a Business Development Manager to join a cutting-edge venture in the heart of London. With their extensive clientele list, it is likely you have come across their interactive products within the retail sector. They are looking for ambitious, motivated and hard-working individuals who are committed to growing the business and hitting sales targets to join a socially and financially rewarding organisation.


Our client specialises in offering a range of digital signage solutions with a strong focus within the retail and corporate markets. The company has tripled its turnover in the last two years, with plans to double turnover again this year. The team possess experience in advertising, marketing, IT and technical consulting. It’s time to start working in a dynamic, fresh and budding organisation where the people are the secret of their success.


This role requires an individual with an entrepreneurial mind-set and proven sales skills. You take action, are resourceful, retain focus and are able to listen and communicate effectively.

A BDM works to improve an organisation’s market position by growing both the number of clients and the budget of each client. Your job will focus principally on searching for new prospects (from warm leads, contacts and your own research) to introduce your services and book a meeting. You’ll attend those meetings with one of the company directors with the aim of earning the right to make a presentation for new business. From sourcing to calling, and meeting to closing new business, you’ll be involved in all steps of the sales process. In addition, you will also take care of the ongoing relationships with these new clients - the more you win, the more you take care of!

Involvement in the whole sales process gives your working week great variety: research, phone calls, meetings, presentations and client management - you’re rarely have the same day twice!


As a prospective Business Development Manager for our client, you will already know the retail market and, in particular, its buying processes. Perhaps you’ve worked as a retail buyer or maybe you’ve sold into retail before. Alternatively, you may work in a creative agency, selling branding or marketing services into retail clients.

As a proven sales professional with a least 2 years’ experience, you will be confident in developing contacts, motivating leads and closing sales. You must have a real passion for sales and for remarkable service to clients as well as an infectious enthusiasm for both work and life. No moaners welcome here!

Being in the heart of technology and the digital marketing world, our client wants people with a genuine interest in both. If this sounds like you and you’re looking for an exciting, autonomous role in a fast-growing tech company based in London’s West End, then please call us now.


This exciting package includes a base salary of £35,000 - £40,000 depending on experience, with a realistic OTE of £65,000. To apply or find out more, please contact us and quote job ref ST2361.
