Reference J20751
Business Development Manager | up to £120k salary package
Office design and office refurbishment / fit-out | Permanent
City of London
Salary package £60,000 - £120,000 (yes, this is real and depending upon person/experience) + board position growth potential

Would you like a hybrid, involved and rewarding role working for a fun, forward thinking, expanding and dynamic office design and build fit-out contractor?

The company is established, the people are nice, their ideas are out there and their attitude towards customer satisfaction is relentless. 95% repeat business.

Therefore, they are looking to grow from £5m turnover to £20m, and want to take their staff on this journey, offer career progression, and allow them to benefit from their EMI shares scheme.

What sort of Business Development Manager / experience are they after?

• Central London Agent Network Generating £5m p/a sales (your agent leads must be direct to office fit-out clients, not D&B tenders or D&B pitches)
• Sales & Employment Track Record (this must be Central London based and working within office fit-out competitors)
• Minimum 3 years in Current and Previous Positions

Central London Agent Network:

The successful candidate / Business Development Manager will likely have a networking background and be 100% sales-led and service-focused, with a solid lead generation network of office letting & acquiring agents that refer them direct to end-user clients. Their agents will; (a) directly introduce clients, (b) give referrals that lead to negotiated contracts and/or (c) create a good position to secure contracts via commission payment. The company does not complete price-led tenders and/or provide unpaid speculative competitive pitches, unless they know there is a level playing field.

Generating £5m+ p/a sales:

The candidate must be able to self-generate £5m+ in sales.

Managing a focused Project Team:

Completed projects show the company's typical client is a 5,000 -10,000 sq/ft office occupier looking for a creative office fit-out and/or refurbishment. Their work is 95% repeat & referral, and 5% from their digital marketing. Project values this year have been between £100k - £1.5m, achieving £4.3m sales in London, Luxembourg and Copenhagen. Above these individual project values, they find that external cost consultants & external PM's start getting involved, and they have no need or appetite to work on projects like these. They will maintain £4m+ in-house business in 2020 and build a small team comprising of a PD, PM & Senior Designer to deliver the £5m+ with the successful candidate leading the team.

Sales & Employment Track Record with minimum 3 years in current and previous positions.

The Business Development Manager / candidate will have experience within one or more of our competitors.

What do they offer in return?

In return, they will provide a commensurate with experience, including title, competitive basic salary that matches the £5m+ sales, individual commission, pension and share options for exceeding targets / length of service up to 3% for exceeding targets over a period of 3years. In time, the position can lead to a company's house board position.

This is not a dull company, they are a bit out there, bucking the trend and pushing the boundaries in the design and build fit-out market. Client testimonials are so, so good to hear.

They are offering a fantastic opportunity for the right person want to know more…?
