Business Development Manager - To £80K Package Training

Reporting to the MD and working closely with the Mechanical and Electrical Directors, and also the Director of Sustainability and Environmental Engineering; you'll be responsible for developing medium and long-term business growth strategies.

This is an exciting opportunity as it's a brand-new role, as typically Business Development has mainly been the Directors responsibility. So you'll have the opportunity of growing this department and also have a huge influence into the continued growth and success of this consultancy.

You'll be rewarded for any additional new clients that you bring on board and have a realistic monthly and yearly sales target. However please bear in mind, they are a very well-established brand-new Building Services Consultancy and already have a very stable pipeline of work across the commercial, healthcare, mixed-use and residential sectors.
