Business Development and Marketing Manager, Peridot Partners Ltd

£Negotiable We’ll be honest and say that since we were established in 2009 we have not been as sharp as we should have been at promoting ourselves proactively.  Our focus has been on our current clients and delivering excellent work, rather than chasing new clients, which was absolutely right.  Now it is time to have a person dedicated to proactively telling our story.  We know that there is more potential within virtually all of our current clients, but they are not aware of all of our service lines. We also know that our brand recognition is still quite low in most of our sectors.  We have some great case studies to write and amazing stories to tell, we just need somebody now to join the dots. If you can help us to develop a coherent business development strategy, draw up case studies, help us develop effective marketing and PR activities, and most of all take the lead on contacting prospects directly to open some new doors, we would be delighted to talk to you regardless of your background.  Everything is flexible, salary, hours, the days worked and even location.  You will however have to spend at least a couple of […]
