Business Development Manager

Posted 1 week ago by MCFT

Business Development Manager

Location: Field & Office based role working from our Manchester Office

Salary: up to £60,000 OTE

Benefits: Car allowance, contributory pension scheme, annual health payment benefit and Share Options

Our business is growing, so is our opportunity. I’m looking for an ambitious, results-focused Business Development Manager who can take an outstanding proposition pitch to top-end customers and really make an impact.

We’re the leaders in our field - not just in the UK but abroad. That comes from looking to properly understand and align with our target customer’s needs - and then requiring very high standards across everything we do.

You’ll have a territory - and be expected to know every key prospect in that territory; you’ll also have sector responsibilities - to know those moving up and those sliding down in particular industries. You’ll work that knowledge - and the peer references - to open doors; telesales, appointment making (we have telesales support, but I expect BDM’s to own the whole process), presenting (planned, appropriate, structured) and clinching deals.

You will be involved in key account deals - owning most, supported by Directors as needed - promotional activity - conferences, exhibitions, supplier events, networking (not many but key).

And you’ll be part of the team setting the standard in our industry - for professional sales just as much as fixing cookers and fridges. Great earning potential, national and international development possibilities.

If you’re keen to show exactly what you can do, selling an A1 service alongside a buzzing team, drop me your CV with a brief, chatty covering letter.

Our Company

MCFT, established 25 years ago, provides commercial kitchen maintenance for high-end customers in the UK and the Middle East; we joke that we won’t work with customers unless we’ve heard of them - and it’s mostly true. We’re also highly regarded by all the key players in our multi-national supply chain.

Our ambition is to be the pre-eminent provider in our field - in the UK and, importantly, overseas - where we have ambitions to be working around the world. That ambition is supported by a fantastic Business Improvement Team - who work on new and future systems, enable our field and office teams and give us the facility to tailor our services to evolving customer needs.

We believe our array of HR Awards testify to the genuine importance we attach to our team: we don’t have widgets or fancy software - our offer is around our people: if they are excellent at their jobs we will have a great business. So we work at being good with our people:

Remuneration - among the best in the industry - coupled with a stake in the business

Opportunity - our growth gives us a range of roles and locations where we need talent

Development - unparalleled training - in soft and commercial skills as well as technical

Work and workplace - we chose to work for and with outstanding people - and this is a business where your contribution makes a real difference.

We like the cultural precepts of Lean: lead with humility, respect for people, small teams, engagement and self-accountability. Whilst leading from the front with sleeves rolled up, getting stuck into the entrails of the business…

Intellect, spark, curiosity, character - yes please.

We’re at the leading edge of our field - with fantastic future opportunities here and on four continents.

Come and help create the new frontier. /p
