Established in 2016, Hiring Wizard is an ambitious fixed-fee recruitment company providing optimised recruitment campaigns that have consistently proven to save businesses up to 80% of their recruitment spend, attracting better quality candidates, much faster and for less!
We're part of a well-established recruitment group which has been operating across the UK and Internationally for almost 20 years. With a vastly experienced team based in Manchester, Southampton and London, we're mostly family run and are proud to have a number of our team who've worked for the company for many years.
Right now, we're busier than ever before, the recruitment landscape is evolving and we're finding that all sorts of businesses have an increasing need for our services. This is where you come in…
Business Development Executive - What's The Role?
Reporting in to our Managing Director, you'll be a key part of our Sales team, responsible for identifying and approaching businesses that would benefit from one or all of our suite of services, whether that's our recruitment advertising campaigns, our alternative to a traditional recruitment agency approach or even a bespoke headhunting project.
You will identify and introduce yourself to key decision makers within businesses, understanding their unique recruitment challenges and assessing whether they have a requirement for our support.
With the help of our vastly experienced team, you'll then build a solution that will add value, introducing the benefits to the customer and close the deal. You'll then liaise with our Client Success team to ensure the customer is onboarded effectively.
Although you'll be given plenty of support, training and quite a bit of autonomy, it goes without saying that, in order to reach 10-15 new customers each day, you'll need to be confident with business to business (B2B) cold-calling and having lots of conversations over the telephone, via e-mail and via LinkedIn every single day. Eventually, you'll even attend face to face meetings with both existing and potential new clients too.
Business Development Executive - Skills & Experience Requirements
We know it's an old cliché, but people really do buy from people, so the most important thing for this role is that you're positive, confident and well-spoken. It will certainly help you to adjust if you have a minimum of 12 months experience in a telephone based sales role.
Any experience of business to business (B2B) sales, as well as digital advertising and / or recruitment would certainly be handy too. As you might expect in a role like this, excellent verbal communication skills are a must, but given that you'll be responding to customer enquiries and sending proposals, it's vital that you can craft a winning email.
Business Development Executive - Why Work For Hiring Wizard?- Our customers love us - You're not selling sand on the beach here, our solutions deliver measurable, effective results and we have customer testimonials coming out of our ears!

- Regular Team & Individual Rewards - We like to do team trips every so often (though the last 12 months have sadly made that harder). In recent years, we've took the whole company away for long weekends in Barcelona, Reykjavik and Portugal as well as day adventures to Butlins, the Comedy Store, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Chester racecourse.
