Business Development Manager, London – January 2018

Purpose of the role:

Supporting company growth through development of business in a specific post-code boundary-defined area, the Business Development Manager will be responsible for all revenue generation activities within that territory, together with working within the wider Business Development team on National Accounts.

Essentially, the BDM is the “face of Premiere” to the client, promoting the company’s products and services to new prospects, existing clients, managing the sales process from initial enquiry through to setting up long term contractual agreements with the client.

Note: In London the BDM will work alongside the Senior BDM London and take much of their direction from that person. In terms of targets, the budgets are set for the area as an entirety. It is envisaged that both the BDM and Senior BDM will work as one team in the region

Responsibilities and Duties to include but not limited to:

  • Identify and develop new business opportunities for the Premiere organisation using all of the many lead generation resources available with the organisation, together with own networking capabilities, working closely within the Sales team and in particular the Telemarketing Executive
  • Managing and developing the company’s relationship with existing and past clients to develop new opportunities with those clients
  • Negotiating price points for individual and long term contracts, and closing deals within prescribed commercial boundaries to develop the company’s gross revenue and margin retention aspirations
  • Developing Premiere’s relationship with the client by provision of added value to the client throughout the lifecycle of the relationship
  • Generation of revenue to pre-agreed levels through own business development strategy, in line with company overall strategy and plans
  • Provision of regional, national, market, sector, and competitor intelligence to the company through diligent information gathering and reporting
  • Liaison with internal departments to ensure the support function output matches the company’s promise and offer to the client – through supply, production, logistics, and customer care
  • Accurate recording of all client and prospect information into Premiere’s own CRM system
  • Provision of regular and ad-hoc sales reports to Sales Analyst and other departments
  • Support National Sales Manager and colleagues within National Sales Team, as needed.

Key Performance Indicators / What good looks like:

  • Generation of invoiced revenue to agreed monthly and year to date budget and target
  • Managing area and individual contracts to targeted “Nett Selling Price / GP” average targets
  • Timely provision of future pipeline and sales reports to Sales Analyst
  • Timely and accurate reporting of customer and sales process through CRM
  • Accuracy of future revenue forecasts to within agreed parameters

Other information:

This specific role has become available due to significantly increased business potential within M25 area, following an extension of our product range; hence the area is well established for Premiere and has been well served in recent years by Premiere. We maintain a strong and vibrant customer base in the area; however, Premiere’s business is changing and developing, and a significant level of New Business prospecting activity, within new and under-developed business streams, will be required to reach objectives. The role will therefore be equally “farmer and hunter” to develop Premiere’s offering in the region.

It is envisaged that a significant amount of daily travel will be involved, given the geographical realities of the territory.  Those looking for a 9 to 5 should look elsewhere.  Also, those looking for an easy, unchallenging role should look elsewhere. Our market place is highly competitive, our customers are highly demanding, and the role requires a consummate sales and customer management professional, equally at home demonstrating product features and negotiating potentially large deals n a boardroom environment, as being on site with sleeves rolled up, directing installations from the front.

What we are looking for:

The Person:

  • Self starter, dogged, determined and resourceful
  • Highly developed interpersonal skills, written and oral communication skills
  • Strong presentation skills
  • IT literacy in main Microsoft functions and experience of working with an online CRM
  • Highly articulate and numerate with a clear commercial focus
  • Ability to work both remotely and as part of a team
  • Highly organised & effective time planner
  • Highly experienced in planning, selling, and delivering effective customer led solutions
  • Well developed influencing and consulting skills
  • Resourceful and Self Sufficient
  • Skilled in preparing and delivering succinct and effective Management Info in a timely and proactive manner
  • Willingness to invest time – the role will demand regular early starts and late finishes due to geography and travel times.

Experience / Qualifications:

  • Solid educational background, formal qualifications unimportant
  • Strong demonstrable experience of B2B sales of a complex product in a highly competitive market place is a pre-requisite
  • Preferably upwards of 5 years on-the-road B2B selling experience to decision makers
  • Experience in selling and tendering to government funded organisations is a definite advantage but not essential
  • Experience in broadly construction-based industries is a definite advantage but not essential
  • Full driving licence held for over 5 years essential

What we can offer you:

  • Competitive basic salary, dependent on experience
  • Excellent commission structure
  • Company car
  • 28 days holiday (including Bank Holidays) + a gift of up to 4 days for Christmas shutdown
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Health cash plan
