  • the ability to qualify a lead and recognise its worth and complexity
  • the ability to take a qualified lead through the whole business development process, through consultation, to presentation and then closure
  • the experience to manage a large pipeline of business
  • previous bid writing experience, as well as preparing pitches & tenders and understand the procurement process
  • the experience to manage the CRM system and provide updates on the progress of pitches
  • the ability to work in a very fast paced environment, which although highly collaborative is 100% remote
  • the business development or sales skills to be able to work alone, yet know when the need to ask for advice
  • excellent stakeholder management skills

You will be a team player, be honest and direct, have a willingness to learn, and more importantly want to be at the forefront of creating change by embracing diversity & inclusion
