We are delighted to present a fantastic opportunity to work with one of the fastest growing businesses in the UK.

Due to my clients continued success and number one status within their sector, an exciting new Business Development Manager (BDM) opportunity has become available.

The successful Business Development Manager will need to be based in or around the upper-Midlands area and must be prepared to travel up to 4 hours to visit clients.

This opportunity is 100% field based with the majority of your leads coming from our client’s specialist marketing team based in the UK.

  • Superior organisational skills/ time management
  • Exceptional presentation skills with a crisp professional image


  • A background in selling Business to Business telemarketing solutions

What we offer:

  • A realistic year one OTE of between £55,000-£60,000, increasing year-on-year.
