BD Manager (Corporate) - International Law Firm
- Full Time
An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced Business Development Manager to join a leading international law firm with a friendly, down to earth and approachable culture.
This is a highly attractive role offering a lot of flexibility to the successful applicant. The role holder will provide strategic BD support, advice and insight to the Corporate practice group, helping the team to grow their market reputation and revenues significantly. You will need to provide strategic input across the group, working closely with the overall practice group leader and the leaders of the firm's main four corporate practice areas. Reporting into the Head of Practice Group BD, the Business Development Manager will work closely with colleagues in international offices and alongside partners and fee-earners, to develop plans, as well as mentor and support two BD Executives. You will be responsible for executing client relationship plans and account management; managing pitches; tracking changes in the market; liaising with the Communications team to raise the profile of the corporate team; and encouraging best practice.
The successful candidate will be confident, organised and pragmatic graduate or equivalent, with excellent experience of BD in a professional services firm. A proven track record of managing and developing the career of more junior team members is prerequisite. Some knowledge of working in Corporate or related practice areas would be ideal, though this is not essential. The Business Development Manager must also have a team-oriented attitude, be commercially aware and have strong communication skills to deal with the highest levels internally.
