Business Development Executive.
Location: Birmingham, West Midlands
A Birmingham based opportunity for a Business Development Executive to join a rapidly growing and highly ambitious law firm who is targeting considerable growth over the next 3 years.
This role will support the BD Manager for the Midlands in creating and implementing the business development strategy around new and existing business. You will work closely with partners to identify who the key clients are, who the target clients, ensure that developed leads are followed up on - in some cases through direct action of your own. You will be the key point of contact between the partnership and the wider marketing function around targeting campaigns, agreeing the event schedule and working with the bids function.
This role offers a prime opportunity for someone to work closely with a top BD Manager who will be able to provide guidance and support but not stifle your creativity by close management. You will be given ownership of your work and be expected to work autonomously for large parts. There is a proven path to career development within the firm.
You will need to have experience as a marketing and BD executive previously, ideally within a law firm but the wider professional services market would work. You will be comfortable building relationships internally and, as the need demands, externally. The role is offering a competitive salary package in an environment where flexible working is offered.
