Job Title: Business Development Manager

Fantastic opportunity for a professional and dynamic new business development manager.

You will be joining an award-winning production company, specialising producing high-end video content and live event production for some of the world's leading brands.

As Business Development Manager you will be responsible for driving new sales opportunities and building an extensive and sustainable sales pipeline for the business.

Working directly to the Managing Director, you will work side by side in devising strategies to fuel your pipeline with more high quality leads.

This role is ideal for someone who is self-motivated, happy to manage their own workload, is confident in gaining leads and not afraid of hitting the phone! This role will involve some national and international travel.

The ideal candidate:

- Proven ability to win, retain and build new business
- Ability to present and negotiate up to board level
- Strong negotiation and influencing skills with the ability to hold high level conversations to persuade client thinking
- A 'can do' approach with a passion for personal development

An understanding of video and live event production is preferred, but not essential. Ideally you will have a proven track record of developing new business in a fast paced sector such as recruitment, media, digital or advertising.

This role would be based at their Leeds office, although they would also consider a remote-based position for the right candidate.
