Business Development Manager - paying up to £45k based in Manchester

Your new company
An award winning logistics company with a global presence and a strong reputation. Following continued success, the company is seeking a driven and ambitious Business Development Manager to grow their freight forwarding business and acquire new clients.

Your new role
Ultimately, your goal is to develop the company's freight forwarding customer base by using your strong sales skills to win new business. You will be based both in the office and out meeting clients to develop and maintain relationships. You will conduct research to create a strategic target client base and present this to the Commercial VP before pursuing exciting new opportunities. You will negotiate pricing with prospective clients and create detailed proposals to present to clients - doing everything you can to convince clients to use you for their freight forwarding needs. In order to get clients on board, you will prepare and deliver presentations face-to-face, ensuring you build strong relationships along the way.

What you'll need to succeed
You will need strong experience in freight forwarding, along with good sales experience (ideally within a logistics environment). You will have a minimum of 5 GCSEs at C or above including Maths & English. It's essential that you are a resilient individual, as with the sales nature of the role, you will face set backs and challenges, so tenacity and persistence is key! You will have a strong commercial mindset and be creative when establishing new business opportunities. You MUST have a full clean UK driving license as you will be out visiting clients and exploring new client opportunities. You must also be proficient in using MS Office software including Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

What you'll get in return
You will receive a competitive salary up to £45,000 depending on your level of experience and what you can bring to the company.
