Business Development Manager

Business Development Managers – London and South Manchester

2 December 2014

Umbrella-Company Limited, who operate under the trading name umbrella.co.uk, are currently recruiting a number of Business Development Managers (BDM’s) to work in either their new London Office in Aldersgate or their South Manchester Head Office on Manchester Road in Wilmslow.

If you are job hunting for a career as a BDM in the umbrella company sector then our ideal candidate would either have prior umbrella or accountancy experience or ideally be currently working in the recruitment sector.

Managing Referrals

As a BDM you are responsible for managing and building referrals of contractors being placed on temporary assignments in the UK through recruitment agencies. This will involve managing existing accounts to ensure referrals are maximised but primarily to also be looking to build referrals from consultants or recruitment agencies that do not currently refer. You are able to offer various incentives subject to the agency’s approval.

There are over 16,000 recruitment agencies in the UK.

You will be able to utilise industry contacts and social media. You will be required to make some cold calling and attend and present at meetings in order to gain referrals. Some accounts favour regular social events and can sometimes involve overnight stays.

Although primarily working near your office of choice we do have national coverage that often requires visits to offices around the UK. We believe it is important to build long lasting relationships with the consultants who refer so face to face contact is important.

At Umbrella we are able to offer a full complement of services. As well as Umbrella Company we also provide accountancy services to contractors who would prefer to trade through their own limited company.

We are on the Preferred Supplier Lists (PSL’s) of many major agencies and are members of APSCo and subject to an annual Professional Passport audit.

Due to locate soon to an exciting and vibrant new Head Office in Wilmslow we believe Umbrella is an exciting place to work and there is great scope to develop and maximise your career. We believe in promoting from within and many of our team have worked their way up to management or director level over the past 5 years.

A healthy basic salary is available with an excellent bonus potential based on the referrals you help generate (OTE £50k).

If the above positions are of interest to you please submit your Curriculum Vitae (CV) through our website or call Stewart Davis or Andrew Kilmartin on 0800 121 6513.
