Are you a creative and resilient Business Development Manager, looking to utilise and enhance your existing skills and experience to act as the key business interface / account lead between Costa and our EU Franchise Partnerships across International markets to help drive growth as well as identifying new opportunities?

Costa Coffee is all about the people and the passion for coffee. We believe in great coffee for everyone… and we mean everyone! We want to become the world’s most loved coffee brand. We like to keep it simple and inclusive so there’s no pretension, no elitism and very few dos and don’ts.

What you'll be doing:

A multifacited role, which actively supports the Head of Franchises to create and drive the strategic growth agenda with each Partner, ensuring they have the right proposition to meet customer needs. You will be driving network growth across the region through a pipeline plan and ensuring the consistent delivery of Brand standards and customer experience.

  • Build relationships and influence across key stakeholders both internal and within our partners businesses at all levels.
  • Lead, coach positively and influence both peers and partners
  • Develop strategic solutions to operational challenges
  • Ensure the successful implementation of Brand initiatives and Marketing Campaigns across all Partners sites & stores

What we are looking for in you:

  • Strong commercial, operational and business acumen
  • Experience of working within a franchise focus role, with a multi-customer and sector business, where complex and varied working practices and structures exist
  • Successfully and consistently delivered or exceeded commercial targets with new or existing client portfolios (ideally in Retail)
  • Experienced in influencing in a matrix structure

Maybe it’s because we love coffee, but we really value a feeling of warmth in our teams and in our communities. We encourage trust, and empower our people to feel supported and make their own decisions. And we love a can-do attitude, boldness and the courage to create positive change

Working for Costa is about knowing what we stand for, standing out from the crowd, and not taking ourselves too seriously.

What we want to give you

  • Bonus Scheme
  • Join the Costa Pension Scheme
  • BUPA Healthcare
  • 25% discount off Costa Coffee – but free when you’re working of course!
