The Role: A comprehensive Head of Business Development remit to prepare and manage the regional strategy plan, enhance the regional BD capability and implement the appropriate marketing activities to deliver on the firm's ambitious growth plans. The role reports to senior (national) level, is occasionally client/partner-facing (to generate opportunities and build working alliances) and includes line-management of marketing and BD support staff. 

The Ideal Candidate is likely to be an accomplished marketer with commercial/BD experience within a successful professional services firm.

In short, to be considered you must be able to demonstrate a sold track-record of business development and commercial leadership within professional services. Natural drive, enthusiasm, empathy and a collaborative approach are all essential.
