Who we are:

We are a leading supplier and installer of solar PV for New Build Housing, Social Housing and Commercial Scale buildings.

We are fully MCS accredited, and our MD is a board member of the Solar Trade Association, the UK's leading solar industry voice.

Recent projects include social housing, care homes, schools, universities, health centres, offices and swimming pools

Our Cultural Values:

+ We live and breathe our values – excellence, innovation, fairness and trust.
+ We believe the company culture is of huge importance and we empower our employees to contribute to this on a daily basis.
+ We are a market leader and we promote from within.
+ We constantly innovate and look for better ways.
+ We give our people personal development plans and a road map that shows them what they need to do in order to get where they want to go.

The Business Development Executive Role:

The mission for the Business Development Executive is to secure business to help the Team double the order book year on year.

You will not be a telemarketer but a true salesperson, with the ability to add value and close business remotely by using our strong brand within the market.

You will be focused on speaking to multiple new build housing developers-some existing and some new in order to quote projects and secure new contracts. Initially you will be using current sources and portals to find leads and chase projects to quote; long term you will be fed leads by our internal marketing team so that you can have 30 “meaningful selling conversations” every day.

You will be working to a collective Sales Team target and will be purely office based so that you are able to maximise your time contacting customers and prosecuting opportunities to quote and win.

Opportunities to quote will be fed to our internal design and sales support team who will generate the quotations for you to follow up, leaving you to purely chase business, follow up enquiries and close new sales.

You will schedule our Field Specialist for any on site surveys and pre-contract meetings to allow you to focus on selling.

You won’t be working to a commission but a salary based on performance with opportunities for progression based on our career roadmap.

Measured Outcomes:

+ To deliver your proportion of the monthly sales orders.
+ To grow the order book (secured contracts) by double each year.
+ To follow up and close business at our current conversion rates.
+ To sell the “value” of using us to our customers to help increase prices and increase the CM (Contribution margin) by 1% each quarter on orders you have secured.

The right person will:

+ Be driven and relentless in their desire to help the Team achieve our goals.
+ Be able to add value to customer propositions to increase margins and win business.
+ Work for the Team collective, not as an individual.
+ Treat customers, colleagues and everyone we deal with fairly.
+ Provide excellent service and support to our customers.
+ Always look for a better way and challenge the norm.
+ Always look to help their team mates succeed.

We’re Talent Acquisition Specialists that founded change in 2005. Since then we’ve helped over 2500 clients grow, prosper and lead.

# Our Story

Frustrated by poor experiences with traditional agencies, our founders (just two regular candidates), decided that the outdated industry needed modernising and a new balance of power. In 2005, a new kind of agency model was born, putting the client and candidate at the heart of the experience whilst removing the pushy sales, schmooze and high fees.

# What makes us different?

Aside from a sensible fee model, custom technology and a direct unhindered path to candidates we…

…don’t sell candidates and we don’t sell jobs: we facilitate relationships and champion the process of ‘organic hiring’ to help create stronger and longer-lasting engagements.

# Who we work with

With an industry reputation for delivering results we are the go-to talent finders for over 2500 clients. We work with everyone from tech start-ups to global brands who all demand the best service and talent.

From business owners hiring 2 people a year to Internal Recruiting teams hiring 200+ people a year, RR sources talent across all sectors and levels.

# Reputation

Our expertise have also been called upon by some of the leading job boards including the UK’s No1.

Recruitment Revolution is a member of the REC with a 100% compliance pass rate and holds a Feefo 5* Gold Award for Service.
