About the role

We’re looking for a New Business Executive to join our team. This is the perfect role for someone who is keen to grow and develop a career in New Business.

This role is a maternity leave cover fixed term contract (15 months) starting in January 2019, but as the agency and the wider Be Heard Group continues to grow there’s a strong possibility of future permanent roles in the team.

Based in Uppingham, but with regular travel to our London office, you’ll be working closely with our Head of Business Development to help the agency and group achieve New Business goals.

You’ll have the opportunity to really own opportunities: dealing with leads, lead nurturing, running proposals and the pitch process and even pitching. 

There will naturally be admin tasks to complete as part of the role including running Salesforce reports, writing and checking proposal documents and liaising with internal stakeholders to secure Resource. But alongside these, you’ll have true ownership of your work and you’ll be playing a hugely important part of the team, and our continued growth.

You’ll be attending networking events (with potential international travel) and running New Business events, keeping your ear to the ground for opportunities for MMT Digital and the wider Be Heard Group.

Ideally, you’ll have the following skills:

  • A degree, or relevant equivalent experience
  • Strong communication skills
  • Fantastic written English
  • Comfortable interacting with clients
  • Friendly and approachable
  • Enthusiastic and determined to see projects through to completion
  • Competent presenter
  • The ability to manage a group of dispersed stakeholders and individuals, supporting them to work together
  • Ambitious to grow and develop your Business Development career

It would also be beneficial if you had the following experience:

  • Salesforce
  • Proposal writing
  • Managing a lead from cold through to client
  • A passion and knowledge of digital
