Business Development Director
Business Development Director jobs
Successful businesses don’t run themselves, and clients can never be taken for granted. It is for these reasons that business development is an ongoing speciality in successful companies. While sales teams tend to seek out new leads, and account managers deal with existing clients, a business development team, usually run by a business development director, straddles the two jobs.
The main task of the role is to maximise profitability by keeping abreast of new openings both in terms of finding potential clients and getting more out of existing clients, a task that clearly requires diplomacy and subtlety!
Reporting to senior management, the business development director will be in charge of making sure budgets are kept to and targets met. In larger firms, the position might oversee business development managers who in turn are in charge of specialist marketing, sales and development staff.
The skills required
Successful business development directors will have great interpersonal skills, in particular a highly professional approach to sales. They will need to be able to quickly understand potentially complex business strategies and targets as set by senior management and communicate them to the team under their control.
As companies vary in size, the specific skills required of the business development director will also vary, so whereas he or she might be talking to particular clients daily for one firm, the role might be more of a co-ordination one in another, so skill sets required will be quite diverse for the career business development director.
