We are an established and successful UK business now looking to expand into Australia, and beyond. We are looking for a self-motivated and ambitious Business Development Manager / Sales Manager to join us. You will play a pivotal and vital role in establishing the Australian business and making it into a successfulenterprise.

The role will initially be part-time (approx. 15-20 hours a week) and flexible with the opportunity to take on more hours as the role grows.

  • Identify suitable companies to enter.
  • Build relationships with those companies.
  • Persuade companies to take part and sell associated products to those taking part. 
  • Manage client database.
  • Help to manage social media, advertising, event planning and other business related tasks.

Key skills and experience required:

  • Sales experience ideally from a publishing / advertising background. 
  • Must be self-motivated, ambitious, willing to go the extra mile when needed and conscientious.
