Job Description

We are seeking an inspirational Business Development Manager to lead our business development and sales activity allowing us to diversify our clients; grow our income streams; and create more social impact.

Magpie is an award-winning creative behaviour change agency with a mission to create healthier and happier communities; one person, one campaign at a time. We choose to work with organisations that want to deliver social good and leave a lasting positive impact.

This influential new role will handle the full sales lead process from identifying potential markets and clients, to nurturing leads and then (with the support of the wider team) developing proposals / pitching to clients and closing the deal.

To succeed in this role, you will be passionate about creating healthier and happier communities and creating lasting positive social impact.

You will have proven success in a business development environment achieving KPIs, business to business sales targets and developing new business relationships in health; public sector; third sector; or with brands that are focused on social good.

Your exceptional communication skills will make the complex appear simple, creating clear compelling pitches.

You will have significant experience in relationship management, with the ability to exercise sound judgement, sensitivity and political awareness when working with multiple stakeholders. An understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the public, health or third sector will be particularly beneficial.

Your self-motivation and confidence will give you the ability to hit the ground running, embrace challenges and act on your own initiative.

More importantly that all of this you will be driven by purpose with a true hunger to build legacies from our campaigns.

Magpie is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive environment and is proud to be an employer where we can ALL be ourselves and succeed on merit.
