Business Development Manager – Chester – £30-35k + commission
Highly-respected marketing agency, based in Chester, is looking for a Business Development Manager to join their sales team, concentrating on winning new accounts.
Reporting into the Sales Manager, alongside another BDM and a BDE, you will be responsible for following up on leads presented to the agency and helping potential clients to understand the value a partnership would bring to their business. Clients rely on the agency to provide strategic insight and advice – and that starts with the very first contact they have. You will make initial calls, write proposals, lead on pitches and negotiate partnerships. You will be targeted on a monthly quota of closed business and will be expected to log all communication within the company CRM system. The agency deals predominantly with digital marketing – web design and build, social media, search marketing and inbound marketing services. You will be expected to understand these services and be able to sell them, consultatively, to marketing managers and directors within prospective clients.

You will have strong client-facing skills and be able to self-motivate. You will have at least three years’ sales experience (ideally within a digital, marketing, or technology environment) and have demonstrated a history of achievement. Finally, any experience of HubSpot would be advantageous, especially their Inbound Certification.
This is an excellent opportunity to work for a very well-liked agency, where staff churn is incredibly low and the company culture is admirable. Commission structure on top of salary, making OTE c£60k.
