Regional Recruitment Services are looking to attract a talented Business Development Executive with a successful track-record within B2B sales. This is an outstanding opportunity for an ambitious, goal-orientated sales person that is craving greater autonomy, higher rewards and more exciting career prospects.
Regional Recruitment Services are an award winning recruitment agency based on Leicester High Street that has been established since 2008 (over 10 years!). We share offices with our sister company, Big Bear Recruitment and in total there are 28 of us working here.
We are part of the preferred supply chain for many household names and provide them with a unique level of service that many of our larger high street and independent agency competitors cannot provide. In addition to this, we are a significant permanent and temporary recruiter on a national scale in the following sectors.
* Supply Chain & Logistics
* Office Support
* MMCC (Marketing Media Communications Creatives)
We have expanded our operations into Burton earlier this year, as it is an ideal opportunity for growth and hold ambitions of growing a branch network throughout the East Midlands, over the course of a 5 year growth plan.
We seek an individual that will be responsible for generating new service users, but also maintaining and expanding on existing relationships that have made Regional Recruitment the success it is today. This is an excellent opportunity to join one of the best-rated agencies within the Midlands, according to Google. This role offers the right individual full autonomy and the freedom to make decisions throughout the sales process, and of course will be given the full support of the Senior Management team to be a success within this role.
The successful Business Development Executive will be responsible for the following;
* Create awareness with prospects and generate demand for our recruitment solutions.
* Matching our service to the customer’s needs ensuring he/she sees the value of doing business with RRS.
* You will work closely with our marketing team to generate new leads and close sales.
* Identifying key decision makers whilst developing and qualifying new business opportunities within the targeted markets.
* Manage, report and achieve sales targets and pipeline.
* Work closely with the account management team in order to ensure that there is a smooth transition once new business has been won.
* Booking direct one-to-one meetings at customer’s sites, to present bespoke recruitment solutions.
* Evaluate and lead strategic approach to new business development
We welcome interest and applications from Business Development Executives with High Street and / or specialist agency experience, or a demonstrable successful previous experience in B2B sales that hold the following skills and abilities:
*A full UK driving licence and flexibility around standard working hours. This is an essential requirement because the role will include meeting with clients and candidates.
*You must have the ability to connect with people and build professional working relationships with key decision makers.
*We want to hire an ambitious sales person that considers business development, influencing and strong negotiation skills as some of their key strengths.
*An abundance of tenacity and resilience.
*Professionalism. Are you the sort of person that will put your best efforts into every task involved in the recruitment sales process? This is important to us.
*A consultative approach to selling.
*The ability to build quick rapport and long-lasting relationships over the telephone and in person.
*Passionate about new business with a strong track record of winning key accounts.
*Be able to negotiate to a high-level as full autonomy on sales contracts will be given.
