Strategic Business Development Manager


  • Business Development Manager jobs role
  • Profitable Technology & engineering SME £25m t/o
  • Opportunity to step up into Head of Business Development
  • £50,000 - £60,000 (this is a very approx. guide : TBC)
  • Mechanical engineering solution into diverse engineering sectors


Are you an entrepreneurial, driven, technology / engineering focused Business development manager? Are you seeking a role that focuses on strategic business development, targeting £2m + accounts? Are you an ambitious Business Development Manager who wants a path to become head of business development? Are you seeking a mechanical engineering / technology focused SME who are investing, growing and remain very profitable?


Further info on the mandate for this Business Development Manager jobs role:


  • This is strategic Business Development. Quite low volume, you will be targeting new key accounts
  • These accounts will be £2m approx. + in value
  • They are across very diverse sectors (energy, engineering, industrial, manufacturing, new car charge technology, wind power, process industries etc.)
  • It’s very consultative – you are often selling service as well as a product
  • You will be strategic in nature – mapping out sectors, target organisations and then taking a robust approach to secure business with the target accounts
  • It’s quite multi-faceted. As soon as you have your foot in the door it’s managing that account, and growing it. There is some Key Account management work here but it starts with BD
  • This is ultimately mechanical components & systems – we don’t need a full blown engineer BUT we do need someone who can sell engineering solutions
  • Work for a really professional and proactive company – they have a matrix that helps define what a key account looks like (they take quite a structured approach to sales and business development)
  • They have lots in the development pipeline (there has been a lot of investment in their R&D and test lab)  so you will have innovative new products to take to market


What we are looking for


  • Someone who is loyal, this is a long term career opportunity and the business value people who are loyal and take pride in their work.
  • Work from home flexibility but ideally within 1 hour 30 mins of Grantham (so that you can still be in the business and engage)
  • Experience of BD and Account management within engineering solution sales
  • If you are ambitious this role could well progress to be Head of BD (that’s the plan) with a handful of reports (so excellent professional development)
