Our client, is one of the most respected Social Media Analytics agencies who specialise in providing intelligence and monitoring of social media to their clients both in the UK and internationally. With an extensive client base of large well known brands, and new investment into the organisation they are looking to accelerate their growth strategy. As they prepare to move into an amazing new office in London and having recently launched their first US operation in New York they are looking to hire a number of Graduate business developers. All successful hires will start in London and two will then move to New York after 3 months to work in that office. With this in mind it is essential that candidates wanting to be considered for the US positions have the right to work there. As a Business Development Executive will join the internal sales team and be part of a 3 month sales training program. You will be trained how to research prospective companies, qualify them as leads, pitch senior level decision makers and book meetings for the client facing sales team. Once trained you will speak to anyone from a small creative agency through to a major corporate organisation and where appropriate will be able to close this business over the phone. My client provides a very structured career path with plenty of opportunity for regular promotion into client facing positions and lots of regular sales training. The ideal candidate will be a graduate who has at least 6 months business to business sales experience in a business development led role. To be a good cultural fit you will be outgoing, sociable and have a hard working attitude coupled with a fun personality. You will be able to demonstrate what you have done in your life that lends itself well to a sales led young business and want to push hard to exceed targets. The successful candidate can expect a salary of 21.5 - 22.5k per annum plus bonus, benefits and loads of opportunity for career progression. This job was originally posted as
