Business Development Manager


No high pressure selling here! True business development/ relationship building role with opportunity for creative design input. Well-established profitable provider of interiors to the hospitality and travel sectors. Prestige client base, work in elegant surroundings. Longer term potential to build your own team.  Up to £45K!  + estate car!  Create, nurture and maintain great working relationships. Ideal role for a skilled networker passionate about interiors.

That all sounds great, tell me more

Do you want to be a part of a family company that is one of a select number of businesses selling high value, beautifully crafted products to prestige international clients in the hospitality, leisure and marine industry?  This business is well-established, highly-regarded with huge amounts of knowledge and industry expertise.

You will be based in the Wiltshire office to start for the first couple of months but after that you will be travelling to London, South East and also throughout the UK to develop our business to the next level, but returning to base at least once a week. You will be part of a strong supportive team and prepared to help across the board for business opportunities and contract delivery.

You will be focussed on developing long term relationships with architects, designers, managers and franchise holders and contractors proactively seeking novel opportunities in new-build premises and refurbishments to grow the business and hopefully develop your own team going forward.

To be considered

You need to be a skilled networker who can demonstrate the development of relationships and delivery of projects over long timescales.

A background in furniture or design would be great but not essential.

What's in it for me?

This is a great opportunity to collaborate with a wide range of clients and through understanding their needs create real value by supporting the transformation of their interiors to create the atmosphere they desire.

On top of this you will be earning up to £45k per annum (depending on experience), with 20 days holiday plus bank holidays as well.

You will be provided with an estate car to enable you to carry samples of our products, as well as an i-pad, i-phone and laptop to make life on the road easier.

Who are we looking for?

You will enjoy meeting new people and developing relationships with the ability to discuss design ideas and contribute your own thoughts on schemes with clients and designers.

You’ll have great research skills - using various sources to uncover potential new contracts and then utilising your established selling skills to make the contract your own. 

Overall you will be outgoing, intelligent and able to think on your feet.  You will be presentable, logical and will be empathetic when working with designers.

This all sounds great – what next?
