Job Description

Here at ExperienceLab we undertake unique and ground-breaking user centred research and design projects across the private and public sector, and right now we're recruiting for a Business Development Director to help us further develop our footprint in private sector markets.

As a key member of our Senior Management Team and reporting to our Managing Director, you'll be given the freedom to develop and deliver our growth strategy, ensuring we have a continual pipeline of new business, with a particular focus on private sector opportunities. Using your sales and prospecting skills you'll be a natural at shaping and closing professional service deals - and you'll also use your influence to ensure we continue to drive our business in the right direction to meet the needs of future and current clients.

Candidate Description

If you are an experienced Business Development Director with a strong background selling agency or consultancy services, then we want to hear from you! You will have previously operated as part of a leadership team with evidence of not only leading business development but also contributing to the business strategy and direction of travel while also engaging with clients and converting opportunities between £50k-£250k+. We are looking for someone who can integrate as part of team environment and draw together the collective skills of our research and consulting team in the pursuit of new opportunities.

Naturally you will have strong commercial insight and be able to take a proactive/creative approach to looking after the needs and concerns of customers. Ambiguity is commonplace at ExperienceLab so the ability to thrive in this environment is key.

And along with experience and knowledge of Customer research, UX, Interaction and Service Design and Innovation, we'd also love you to bring with you a proven network of industry contacts and experience of working within private sector sales.
