Job description

I am working with in partnership with a long established (over twenty years) provider of manned guarding and associated services.

They are currently looking for an additional Business Development Manager to join their sales team. There are currently three BDMs and their own telemarketing team within the department. The sales department within the company has a very open culture and is geared towards sitting down as a team and finding the best strategy to secure the business. So for example a BDM may have strong relationships or knowledge of a particular client, sector or geographical area, this knowledge would be utilised in the best possible way to win a contract. The telemarketing team will undertake the initial groundwork (although you are welcome to do it!).

Candidates for the role must be industry experienced, currently working in a similar role or have done so in the last twelve months, have an excellent knowledge of the entire sales cycle from initial lead finding through to tendering and closing the sale, have excellent client engagement, persuasion and communication skills and reside with commuting distance of their offices in West London.

The position has an annual sales target of £1 million. Commission is paid at 1% to target, 1% bonus for hitting target and 2% above target (this is open ended).

Salary circa £35k-£40k commission, car/allowance, phone, laptop, 22 days holiday plus Bank Holidays, NEST pension (can be upgraded).

Therefore if we do not contact you within seven days your application for this particular role has not been successful. However we have retained your CV and we will advise you of future roles that may be of interest.
