Head of Business Development

Professional services


package to £75k


Our Client: A leading, progressive and high-profile professional services firm.

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. Being comfortable working in a multi-disciplined partnership culture - and the ability to lead/coach/mentor Partners - is essential, seeing as the job holder will be responsible for managing the regional BD agenda and bringing all of the key stakeholders along with them on the journey. First class communication and interpersonal skills (including presenting) are therefore essential, as is the ability to manage and motivate a busy team, coordinate regional marketing activity (online and offline), direct the commercial research (market development), work with key clients, participate in networking and instruct agencies/suppliers. 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.

The role is based in Manchester and will require at least two days per week office attendance, post-COVID, in addition to some regional and national travel to other offices and locations.
