Featured vacancy

Ref: 0403

Head of Business Development, Music/Media


London [but will initially be home-based, until further notice]

c. £100k + bonuses and benefits


Our Client: A highly successful marketing organisation working in the music and media industry, creating strategic brand alliances between FTSE 100 and blue-chip organisations and the entertainment sector. Clients include some of the world's premier FMCG, electronics and automotive industry brands. 

The Role: A vacancy has arisen for a high-achieving BD professional to lead the agency’s acquisition of new clients, operating alongside the MD. You will manage a small but dynamic new business team and lead the corporate bid process internationally.

The Ideal Candidate will have a proven track record of success delivering strategic alliances with major organisations, ideally in a media, advertising or entertainment industry context. Acute commercial acumen and a passion for marketing and brand development are crucial as is, preferably (but not essentially) a keen personal interest in the music industry. The ability to leverage partnerships through digital and online content (and also live events, post-COVID) - plus a sound understanding of the latest music/streaming technologies and channels - would be distinct advantages. 
It is unlikely that the chosen candidate will have less than three years' successful corporate B2B and 'big-pitch' sales experience. 

In addition to the above you will of course need to display the interpersonal skills, maturity, gravitas and tenacity/dynamism to lead this critical process in the Company. The potential rewards for the chosen candidate are considerable, including the prospect of a board position.

If you feel you have the experience, skill-set, appetite and ambition to take on this exciting opportunity - which will take you everywhere from Glastonbury to California via Ibiza once the industry has recovered from the current situation - then APPLY here with your CV and brief covering note, quoting Ref 0403.  Or for further details, call us on 0161 236 6924. All applications/enquiries will be treated in strict confidence and no CV or candidate name released to our client without your permission.  Closing date for applications:  30-June-2020.
