Business Development Executive (1907-121)

Our client is looking for a Business Development Executive to join their company, reporting to the Marketing Manager.

The Role

The Business Development Executive is responsible for generating business opportunities for the field sales and project sales team within our Storage and Interiors businesses. These business opportunities will generally take the form of initial appointments with the client that will then develop into award winning storage and fit-out solutions.

Key Accountabilities

As Business Development Executive you will connect and build relationships with a vast range of clients from local businesses to multi­ national brands, generating appointments and quoting opportunities for our project sales team across both Storage and Interiors division.

The role is office based, and will see the Business Development Executive conduct quality prospecting calls on a daily basis with a smart, focused approach to a wide range of clientele. This will include following up on warm leads as well as researching and calling prospective new clients.

The main tool for the role is the company CRM where you will call and log all of your activity, to ensure that you are able to provide a high level of customer service and professional approach to your personal diary of clientele.

Although the primary medium you will use is telephone, you will also engage with prospects via other channels including email and social media, such as Linkedln.

You will work closely with the marketing and sales team to ensure your lead generation is coordinated with other initiatives in the business, to maximise the return on investment.

You will receive data and leads from multiple sources, therefore you will liaise with our networking associates on a daily or weekly basis, updating on the lead information to ensure an excellent relationship is maintained.

Customer experience is key, therefore, you will also support in the delivery of customer relationship initiatives such as customer project follow-ups and regular contact to ensure the company maintains a high level of customer satisfaction and repeat business.

This is very much an autonomous role where you will need to be smart about lead generation, working towards set key performance indicators and an overall opportunity target.
