Business Development Director

We’re looking for a rockstar business developer to join our fast-growing and ambitious team. Sound appealing? Read on. We’ve been expecting you…

We’re a brand new brand with a tonne of personality, deep expertise, serious credentials and we’re defining a whole new space in consulting.

Following the merger of 4 businesses, we’re ready to supercharge our growth. Working in close partnership with our Consulting and Practice teams, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running in growing our existing accounts and attracting new C-Level clients. Professional services experience is a must, alongside a sharp commercial mindset to help us grow revenue and increase profitability.

You’ll thrive under pressure, enjoy managing multiple projects and working with a diverse range of stakeholders across our business and within our clients. You’ll have the gravitas and expertise to inspire instant trust and confidence. You’ll be comfortable leading the crafting of a unique approach to answering some of today’s toughest business challenges, alongside our expert teams.

Injecting personality, style and imaginative storytelling into the world of consulting is what we’re all about. Creating a touch of theatre is how we wow our clients and you’ll be leading the way with this across the business alongside the Sales & Marketing team. You’ll be working across a diverse industry spectrum: from tech to sports, finance, fashion, government, luxury, education, transport, FMCG and everything in between.

Working directly with our Head of Sales & Marketing, co-CEO, and the wider Yonder team, you’ll be an integral part of a small, (yet mighty!) Sales & Marketing team of six. Your relationship building skills will be second to none. You’ll be ready to bring loads of ideas to the table and excited to drive them through to execution and help us achieve our ambitious growth targets.

You’ll be working with world-class strategists, award-winning researchers, mind-blowing data scientists and a heavyweight creative team. The opportunities to learn are endless, and you’ll be excited to get stuck in. We’re trusted advisors with the spirit of adventurers. If you’re looking to make a real impact, play a pivotal part in growing a young business, this is the role for you.

The role covers all areas of business development from cold prospecting to collating and leading opportunity teams, crafting killer proposals and leading pitch rehearsals. You’ll be organising and leading new business meetings, negotiating and closing sales, and onboarding new clients. You’ll be a brilliant relationship builder, have sharp attention to detail, powerful communication and storytelling skills, and your organisational skills will be second-to-none. So, you’ll need to have 6+ years’ business development experience, really understand how to get the best thinking out of internal teams to craft a winning approach for our clients, and top-notch prospecting skills.

You’ll have strong communication, stakeholder and client relationship management skills and you’ll know how to turn complex ideas into powerful stories, delivered with beautiful simplicity, in collaboration with our marketing and creative teams. You’ll be passionate about, and confident in, strong relationships – a big believer in the power of really understanding your prospects to turn them into long-term client partnerships.

Sharp knowledge of PowerPoint, Salesforce and LinkedIn are desirable. The hunger to learn every day, never accept complacency, amp your imagination, and challenge yourself to deliver better and better each time are a must.

We’re eternally curious and never stop learning, sharpening and sharing our diverse expertise. That’s why we only hire people with bags of energy, eternal curiosity, limitless ideas and the desire to get stuck in and make a real difference together – for our clients, and for ourselves. Most importantly, we only hire unbelievably nice people! Honestly. Those who deliver to the highest calibre and want to have some fun along the way…

Yonder launched in October 2020 after merging 4 businesses together. We’ve created a fresh new consultancy – a unique fusion of strategy, insight and imagination that delivers customer-driven business success for our clients, and aims to make business better. And it’s an amazing list of 100+ brands, from disruptive startups to industry giants. Say hello to a close-knit team of 175+ strategists, researchers, creatives, data scientists, analysts and innovators across the UK, US and Asia. It’s nice to meet you.

Looking for a consultancy that’s pushing boundaries, pursuing brilliance and excited by possibility? You’ve just found it. Talk to us today.
