Sponge New Business is a successful Business Development Agency. We find business wins for our clients using a mix of telemarketing, email and research. This will include: - Cold calling and emailing prospects to arrange quality meetings and secure briefs. This will be the part of the role that will take up most of your time. - Using your flair for research to unearth marketing insights. - Liasing with your clients regularly, providing input and feedback on strategy and targeting – the role requires strong Account Management skills. - Producing regular reports on your activity. - Developing your leads into genuine business opportunities. We’ll provide training and encouragement. Our work needs a lot of insight and initiative, so the support of your colleagues is something you can expect. Our clients expect to receive regular opportunities to pitch for and win business. Achieving that is the most important part of the role. Our clients trust us to grow their companies – you’ll be as much a part of their team as you will be ours. To do this you’ll need an eye for detail, confidence and a way with words. Marketing knowledge is something you’ll have – or the drive to learn about the marketing industry. In return, you receive a decent salary plus commission based on the profit you generate for our client. We provide in-house training, whether it’s a sales workshop or industry-specific learning sessions. Our “Late Start, Early Dart” perk means that once a quarter, you can start an hour late or leave an hour early with just 24-hours’ notice. Our quarterly team activities have included things from the usual bowling nights to our entering a poker tournament at a casino together, or attempting a “Locked Room” adventure on a night out. We enjoy regular paid-for team lunches and a good office atmosphere. This is a role for someone with ambition to do well. If you think this is you, please apply now. Only applications with a relevant covering email will be considered. This job was originally posted as
