A global IT consultancy and research company are looking to expand their European Business Development team. The fastest growing part of the firm, currently turning over just under £2.5BN a year, the European arm offers solutions in Cloud software, Internet of Things, Data Analytics and Trends & Predictions. Boasting 80% of the Fortune 500 companies using at least one service from them, the firm are looking to really hone in on the SME market and cultivate relationships with smaller businesses.

Starting on a £35K basic salary, you will have the opportunity to earn uncapped commission from the deals you close. Average first year earnings is around £42K, however, earnings have been known to rise up to £65K for a first year OTE!

So, if you are someone who is hungry to succeed and wants to work in an environment of 'what you put in, you get out’, this could be the perfect opportunity for you!
