Are you currently a business development executive looking for your next step up? Or a BD Manager looking to broaden your experience? Have you got experience of working within professional services? If this sounds like you, read on!

We have a fantastic opportunity for a business development manager to join our Bristol office on a full-time, permanent basis.

Joining the wider marketing department, you will work alongside a talented team who aim to ensure the business development activities of the firm are effective and commercially valuable.

The vision of the Marketing department is to initiate and deliver best in class marketing solutions that drive the firm’s pipeline to deliver profitable, strategic growth.

We are therefore looking for a resilient, proactive self-starter, with previous experience of working in a similar role, or looking for their next step up. Reporting to one of our senior BD managers, you will be supporting them across a number of areas and in particular the technology sector.

This is an exciting opportunity with a high level of responsibility from the start. You will be expected to manage projects and initiatives including:

  • Supporting the lawyers in producing, implementing and evaluating the effectiveness of marketing plans, driving the delivery of the marketing activities; and managing the marketing budget;
  • Being responsible for the management and delivery of departmental pitches and working with the Pursuits team on larger, multi-departmental or strategic pitches;
  • Supporting the firm’s CRM programme, with responsibility for proactively developing the management of specific clients and targets;
  • Proactively organising events/webinars and digital marketing initiatives as part of wider marketing campaigns; and
  • Assisting the wider Marketing team with a range of other key marketing activities, such as legal directories submissions, industry award submissions, press and PR matters, marketing collateral, email marketing and website content.
  • Who are we looking for?

    To succeed in this role you will be a resilient, proactive self-starter, with substantial experience of working in a similar role within professional services.

    On top of this, strong communication skills are necessary; as is a demonstrable history of building and maintaining relationships with stakeholders of all levels.

    You will be project managing pitches and liaising with different departments – so the ability to instil confidence and influence senior leaders is essential.

    This is an exciting and fast-paced role, where no two days are the same; so being able to effectively deal with changing priorities and manage your own time in a fast-paced environment will help you succeed in this position.
