The opportunity

A new positon has arisen for a Business Development professional who has experience in the learning and development domain, to focus on growing this new and exciting business within EY.

Your key responsibilities

As a Senior in the team, you will oversee implementation of a focused sales and marketing effort in the assigned location within the learning and development industry. The objective will be to identify, anticipate and satisfy client needs on an on-going basis, to grow strong relationships so that we are the supplier of choice for all training needs for our corporate clients and to embed ourselves in their recurring training calendars. To achieve this, you need to ensure that we offer solutions that maximize the value to our client. This is a pre-requisite for growth and sustained client loyalty. You will work heavily with the Head of Training and Location Markets Leader to achieve this.

Specifically, you will establish relationships with key existing and potential clients through use of all resources available, maintaining close client contact through use of a CRM system including regular personal interactions.

In addition, you will ensure that the solutions we provide, precisely address the need in a measurable way wherever possible, ideally an ROI.
