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 Manager- What's The Role?

Reporting directly in to our Managing Director, you'll be our sales lead, responsible for identifying and approaching businesses that would benefit from 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. You'll then build a solution that will add value, introducing the benefits to the customer and close the deal.

Once closed, you'll then liaise with our Client Success team to ensure the customer is onboarded effectively, following up to ensure each account is developed, maximising upsell and cross sell opportunities for Hiring Wizard and the wider group.

Business Development Manager- Skills & Experience Requirements

We're looking for someone who already understands what is required to be a success in a B2B sales role. That means 2-3 years+ and a good track record of closing new business opportunities and / or developing accounts.

You'll show creativity and dynamism, exploring new ways to reach decision makers via phone, email and social media. You'll be well spoken and confident, able to hold your own in a conversation with CEO's, business directors and heads of department.

Ideally, you'll have knowledge of the digital advertising and / or recruitment industries and you'll be able to put together benefits led proposals.

Business Development Manager - 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!

- Good People - We're a friendly, down-to-earth bunch. We work hard to be good at our jobs. Casual dress code, early finishes, ad-hoc paid lunches / breakfasts and much more.

- Town Centre Office - In the heart of Altrincham, just 5 minutes' walk from the tram station which takes you into Manchester city centre. Excellent local transport links

- 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.
