Let’s be clear: this is a great opportunity for a true business go-getter. If you are an experienced business manager adept at new client acquisition, it could be just the role for you. Especially as you’ll be working alongside talented technologists at the cutting edge of innovation while contributing to the safety and security of UK citizens at home and abroad.Naturally, we would expect you to have a successful record of achievement delivering technical solutions in the defence and security sector. You’ll also be used to developing customised work programmes that respond to the very specific needs of clients. Crucially, you will need to be in tune with our commercial approach, which is founded on earning repeat business from established client relationships and seeking fresh opportunities for growth. These are busy times at Cambridge Consultants, and we need a Business Development Manager to join our successful team and help make sure our defence and security business continues to flourish. So, as well as having great rapport, you’ll need to be a real dynamo who relishes the search for new openings within existing accounts and can identify sales opportunities, maximise conversions and personally close sales.
Developing your knowledge and collaborating widely…That will mean developing your deep domain knowledge, and collaborating widely with our engineers, mathematicians, designers and strategists to deliver the breakthrough technology needed to solve our clients’ problems. You’ll be spending plenty of time with those clients, interpreting their needs and communicating effectively with colleagues back in Cambridge to ensure opportunities are maximised. Much of this will be face-to-face, so efficient time-management is vital. We have a comprehensive job description to discuss with the right candidate. If you have an imaginative and inquisitive mind, an excellent degree or PhD in a technical or science discipline and a real commercial flair, we’d very much like to hear from you.
