THE COMPANY
With an unrivalled reputation in the industry and a broad range of services including production, creative, video and content, this agency have built an outstanding industry reputation and have a portfolio of long-standing blue-chip clients! Having recently grown through the acquisition of another agency, broadening their client base even further and strengthening their positioning in the market there has never been a better time to come on board!

Working across a range of sectors including pharmaceutical, technology, telecoms, financial, retail and government sectors they deliver a broad spectrum of events including award shows, conferences, investigator meetings, product launches, incentives, brand & sponsorship activation's, experiential and roadshows to name a few!

Offering an excellent working environment, including a strong team ethos, competitive salaries and fantastic career opportunities, this is certainly an opportunity not to be missed!


THE ROLE
With new clients coming to them and existing clients ever expanding there hasn't been a new business person in the agency, but now with the acquisition of another agency and the resource in place this is an exciting time to join their team.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced BDM to come on board and help develop business across the agency: developing their sales and marketing strategy, identifying new opportunities and bringing new clients on board.

This isn't a hard sales role full of phone bashing, they're not that kind of agency. Targeted and considered relationship building that ultimately leads to results is the approach needed.

A broad role, responsibilities include:

* Working with Directors to develop a sales strategy
* Proactively generating new business leads
* Identifying new opportunities
* Actively developing business from new clients
* Arranging client meetings and taking briefs
* Developing RFP's and proposals
* Working with internal teams and the wider business
* Building long lasting relationships
* Networking at events and trade shows
* Monitoring media and trade press for potential opportunities


THE CANDIDATE
The ideal candidate will have a proven background in seeking out and winning business ideally gained from working within an event or live experience agency environment, although other event related backgrounds will also be considered. Candidates need to have a solid understanding of the events market and have experience of creating RFP responses and proposals. Candidates must have strengths in developing relationships and identifying opportunities, as well as pitching for business. Any exposure to the pharmaceutical or health-care sector would be an added benefit but is not essential for the role.

In return you will get the chance to make this role your own, work with a fabulous team and help to cement this agency in their rightful place as one of the best out there.

Live specialises in all disciplines (and at all levels) within the events, experiential and creative.
