Trainee Business Development Manager

Here at Blue Octopus, we’re celebrating our 10th year birthday and 2020 promises to be another exciting year in our quest to further build our reputation and client reach. Part of this is a move back to our Otley offices in which the Trainee Business Development Manager role will be based.

We are looking for someone with a strong personality and drive to introduce Blue Octopus to prospective clients with full training provided at the start and ongoing to allow the successful candidate to have a clear progression plan in place leading into a Business Development Manager position whilst supporting the external team to generate opportunities through a blended approach of prospecting. This role is vital within our strategy and the rewards will be exceptional for someone who helps us to realise success.

Whilst the role is office based, there will be opportunities to spend time with the external business development team visiting prospective clients to gain a direct insight of the process we go through to attract new business and we can guarantee that this is one of the most exciting parts of life at Blue Octopus!

Now here is the best part. We don't require industry experience or even experience within a sales environment. Personality is much more important as we truly need to add memorable characters into our ambitious team. If you feel that you have what it takes and are up for a challenge, then we look forward to your application!

It’s important to us that our staff have a great work life balance and to achieve this, here are a few of the benefits we have on offer:

  • Great office hours - 09.00 start, with a 17.00 finish
  • Friday 16.00 finish
  • Fresh fruit delivered
  • We’ll provide your breakfast!
  • 4 Day weeks once a month!
  • Healthcare scheme
  • Pension
