We are a fun, quirky, dynamic and successful start-up coffee brand based in London. We are changing the game for the coffee industry - not only the way that you love and enjoy a great tasting coffee but also the way in which our coffee is sourced and made. We care about our workers, from the coffee farm to the office! So much so that we were named as the Time Out's Top 5 Most Fun Offices in London!
Our beautiful open plan offices boast cosy chill out areas, great working space, a huge kitchen (stocked with drinks!) and obviously, an endless supply of coffee! If you enjoy the sound of working in a fast-growth business, are able to take change in your stride, have a passion for coffee and/or food, can think strategically, act tactically and thrive on winning, you're 50% the way to being the perfect candidate.
We're looking for an eager Business Development Executive and all-around go-getter to help develop our brand presence. You will achieve this by building lasting relationships with our client-base and contributing to our current portfolio with a savvy approach to sales. You will report to the Head of Sales, however, you will have very hands-on responsibility for capturing new outbound business opportunities, building strategy, managing all small-medium sized accounts, responding to inbound enquiries to develop your own pipeline and looking at innovative outbound lead generation tactics to capture high-value opportunities to help build our portfolio of clients. You will also assist in managing and delivering on larger wholesale projects and team-wide business development activities such as trade shows, client training sessions and marketing initiatives.
We're looking for:
- Experience in a B2B sales role with proven success is ideal but not a prerequisite
- A real self-starter who is confident in following their natural business intuition
- A people person - you must be a natural networker who can build rapport quickly and think on your feet
- An obsessiveness over quality and attention to detail - we're not selling second-hand cars, this is an incredible product that needs a salesperson with a focus on delivering quality in both service and approach
- The capacity to understand client requirements and put together bespoke proposals to meet these
- Experience in, or an understanding of, the FMCG industry and more specifically speciality coffee and the market is preferred but not a prerequisite. More important would be your passion and willingness to learn and develop in these areas.
This is a really exciting opportunity to jump on board with a dynamic, forward-thinking and progressive business. We are hugely focused on not only delivering excellent services and products to our clients but also making sure that we provide an open, enjoyable and rewarding environment for our employees. Though we want people to work here because they want to be here, want to succeed and want to enjoy themselves, we recognise that people also need - and deserve - a fair package to make a career with us viable.
- £22,000 basic salary, plus commission. Year 1 OTE £38,000
- 22 days holiday
- Free breakfast and unlimited delicious coffee
- Ongoing learning and development
- Flexible working hours
- Unrivalled exposure and progression
If this sounds like the opportunity for you then apply and one of the Wiser Graduates team will contact you within with information on next steps. We aim to get back to all candidates within 5 working days.
