Principal People have been exclusively engaged by an industry leading Health and Safety Consultancy organisation that provide a range of consultancy services to different clients in a variety of different industry sectors.

As a Business Development Manager, on introduction to the business you will be handed a client base of clients that you will be responsible for.

Of course, before all of this – you will be fully trained in what the company do and the services that provide.

  • Identifying new clients, markets and ways to increase and build your sales pipeline
  • Communicating and leaning on the experience of the existing Business Development team
  • Communicating with operational consultants to understand report findings from site visits, diarising any actions or client follow ups as required

The ideal candidate will possess:
