We're currently a team of young guys and girls, all aged between 22 and 25, excited about continuing to build a company we can be proud of and have fun along the way.
As we look to step up our growth in 2014, we’re after an ambitious New Business Manager to spearhead our client acquisition strategy. You would work closely alongside the Managing Director to identify potential client sectors, research prospects and make initial contact, pitching our offer and working to close the deals.
You will be responsible for building BORN SOCIAL’s external profile as well as developing and delivering our new business strategy, whilst identifying where we succeed and working to continuously refine our approach.
Whether on the phone, in prospective meetings, writing proposals or out networking – this is a great opportunity for someone who can relish the challenge and responsibility leading the frontline of growing an exciting young business.
Brilliantly personable... communication is the lifeblood of our business. You must be instantly
friendly and great with people. You must have a natural ability to handle challenging situations and personalities with charm.
A love for social media... you must be fascinated by how brands can use social to further their business. You will be naturally curious about the developments of the online world and be excited about its potential.
Influence ... the ability to structure a persuasive case that can form an accurate and compelling representation of the service we offer. You must be brilliant at selling your ideas!
Real drive and ambition... we are a small team in a small company and we need people who have the mind set of growth. You will be eager to learn and accelerate your career by playing a key role in building the business.
Initiative... you will be able to think on your feet, be full of ideas and with the enthusiasm and energy to put them into action of your own accord.
Persistence and resilience... You must relish the responsibility and autonomy that comes with representing the business and be strong in the face of rejection. Your determination must remain fierce at all times!
We're a young business with exciting plans and a bright future. If working amongst those of a similar age in a relaxed but hardworking environment sounds exciting to you, then we'll be excited to meet you.
