Business Development Manager

Job No: 110884
Location: Brisbane

The Opportunity

With ongoing expansion of our client base and products and a strong strategy of team growth, we're on the lookout for a polished and determined Business Development Manager to join our Brisbane team.

Tenacity and a hunger for achieving results will take you far as you play a pivotal role in finding new business opportunities and moving these leads through the sales pipeline. This is a high-touch, national role (primarily phone based), selling across industry verticals, with the expectation that you will focus on enterprise level clients across 1-2 industry segments.

Working with primarily outbound leads, here's what your key accountabilities will be:

  • Delivering 10 qualified demo's per month to our product specialists;
  • Rigidly applying our simple and sophisticated sales journey;
  • Connecting with 20-30 new businesses per day in assigned verticals via a multi-touch methodology; and
  • Delivering outstanding service to prospective clients and achieve industry leading NPS scores.

This is a fantastic opportunity to focus on what you do best - finding new leads and making valuable connections - while having the advantage of a senior sales team member there to help close the sale. You'll also be supported by a team of Product Specialists who will conduct client demos and help the prospect understand why Scout Talent is a natural choice if they want to recruit the best.

Could this be your next career move?

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone aspiring to work in enterprise sales. You will get the best of both worlds - the opportunity to work with an established, stable and brilliant brand name, whilst enjoying the agility and energy of a start-up atmosphere!

Our ideal candidate will be chosen based on their competency in four key areas (in order of importance):

  • Willingness to succeed & learn;
  • Your personal alignment with our company values;
  • Your ability to get results; and
  • Your demonstrated skills relevant to the role.

We're looking for motivated and hungry individuals who get a thrill from chasing down the next opportunity/deal/sale. If you’ve got a competitive streak, find sales exciting and energising, and genuinely enjoy frequent engagement with stakeholders, this could be your dream role.

The successful candidates will be charismatic, well spoken and polished - you need to make a great first impression every time! It's also crucial you be persistent and very process driven, with loads of initiative in order to consistently hit your KPIs.

Due to the nature of our sales cycle, you'll ideally have experience in B2B sales or service based sales. Experience in HR, recruitment and/or SaaS would be advantageous but industry specific experience is not essential. 

Importantly, we're after people who are looking for a career with us. We all love what we do and need team members who are eager to show up and perform each and every day.

Package & Perks

Our culture is one of innovation, dedication, determination and fun.

In return for your hard work and dedication, you'll be rewarded with a base salary plus uncapped commissions. 

Our fabulous Account Managers / Product Specialists, Client Success Specialists, Developers, and Marketers are all here to support you. We know the ropes and are invested in helping you succeed. 

We’ve had 10 years of steady results and have grown revenue year-on-year. We’re a stable, proven organisation rather than a risky start-up. We’re also on the precipice of a significant growth phase with some exciting new products to bring to market and will have ongoing career opportunities for Sales Leaders as we navigate this growth. It’s a good time to join.

If this all sounds good to you, fill out an application below and we'll be in touch shortly!
