About The Opportunity

As a Senior Business Development Manager you will join our clients commercial team where you will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the growth of their retail finance offering. Looking to grow in a sustainable way, with funding readily available to support that expansion, our client is looking for someone who is well connected in the industry with the gravitas and credibility of a high performer with a proven track record of selling into retailers. Our clients customer net promoter scores and internal engagement results speak for themselves, placing them ahead of many of their competitors. We're searching for a thought-leader, someone who is looking to trailblaze with the gravitas to influence and drive change. This is a home-based opportunity, however, you will be required to work from our clients London office at least once a week, and their Basingstoke office once every 4-6 weeks.

About The Desired Candidate

You must have a demonstratable proven background in sales/new business development with a natural flair and desire to deliver (and exceed) results, building long lasting relationships with customers and colleagues alike. If you have operated in the point of sale or retail finance space then great, however we are open to speak to individuals who have operated in a broader regulated sales environment (such as Payments, PSP, EPOS, merchant acquirers), but will need to possess a required level of risk knowledge and exposure to work well in a business like ours. If you have worked in home, lifestyle, jewellery, sporting goods, consumer electronics or home improvements, this would be highly
advantageous. What is equally important is that you thrive working in a KPI driven environment, with a proven ability for developing business within a targeted market sector, having previously negotiated deals with different types of businesses including large corporations and SMEs. Your communication and influencing skills will need to be engaging, with the ability to adapt your style to your audience.

As well as a competitive salary, competitive performance related bonus based on individual and company performance.

In addition, a generous contributory pension scheme through Hargreaves Lansdown, life assurance, 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays on top) with the option to buy/sell up to 5 additional days (terms apply).
