Job Description

This is a career defining opportunity to join an already highly successful and high profile agency where you can shape, lead and drive their new business offering.

The agency
With global offices, awards everywhere, a fantastic reputation and fast track growth this agency is the one others fear on the pitch list.

For a client base of global pharmaceutical brands they deliver highly innovative and creative comms solutions across events, experiential, brand, digital and everything in between. All delivered in house, all delivered to an exceptional standard and all cutting edge.

Having come so far purely through word of mouth and client referrals there is now a fantastic opportunity for an experienced new business person to join the team and drive new business from new and existing accounts.


The role
Reporting directly to the board this role covers all aspects of new business, from positioning their offering to assessing opportunities within existing accounts and driving pure new business growth throughout the agency.

This isn't hammering the phones or harassing potential clients, this is smart new business, spotting opportunity, developing relationships and making it happen. If you find the opportunity they can pitch and win it like no other.

In such a broad (and new) role the responsibilities are wide ranging and will shape to the candidates own plan, but will generally include:

- Working with the board to shaping the agencies overall offering
- Setting and implementing the overarching sales strategy
- Assessing existing accounts for new opportunities
- Identifying new account opportunities
- Developing relationships with C-suite level contacts
- Taking briefs (with client services)
- Overseeing the pitch process


The candidate
Candidates should have extensive agency (med comms / events / integrated) experience and be able to demonstrate pure new business wins from pharmaceutical accounts. In return they offer the chance to join a fabulous creative agency where you will have the freedom to use your experience to shape and develop their new business offering.
