They will relish the energy of business development, with an eye for results, and natural attention for detail.

Who you are:

  • First class written and verbal communication skills, willing to initiate new conversations confidently on the phone, email and in person, with discipline to follow up meticulously.

  • An agile problem solver. You can work independently, embrace change and prioritise multiple requests, but not afraid to ask for help when the going gets tough.

  • Cool and calm under pressure. You have superior organisational skills, enjoy making plans and follow-through on tasks in a fast-paced, dynamic work environment.

  • Team player and naturally curious. You work well in a team environment and you love learning how things work. A willingness to jump in wherever, and a sense of humour will help!

  • Ambitious and motivated. We’re growing fast, and value your ideas, so if you’re willing to get stuck in we’d love to take you with us all the way.

What you’ll do:

  • Follow up leads generated by our marketing campaigns, to understand their needs and qualify potential Innovation Gateway partners.

  • Tracking all leads, business development activity and learnings using our CRM tools.

  • Work closely with the marketing and delivery teams to inform campaigns and capture relevant insights/data for prospective clients respectively.

As you get to know the business, you will be independently generating leads, with increasing responsibility for writing proposals and progressing your own prospects.

Opportunities:

  • To be part of an ambitious, fast-growing (and fun) team, with a chance to further develop commercial skills that will take you wherever you wish to progress your career.
