Head of Business Development
Location: Based in England or South Scotland, Head Office in London
Sector: Sustainable Energy
Remuneration: Base Salary £60k, OTE £100k
Programme: Permanent supported hire role, flexible working
Are you interested in helping major blue chip organisations reduce their energy costs and environmental impact through an exciting business development role? Are you returning from a career break and looking for an opportunity to take an entrepreneurial company to a new level?
BasePower is an award-winning company with an innovative business model that helps large manufacturers make a step-change reduction in their energy costs and carbon emissions. The company was founded in 2014 by a team who had previously deployed over £130m of investment into renewables generation and energy efficiency in the UK.
BasePower is looking for a Head of Business Development to join their rapidly expanding company which develops, funds and installs on-site energy schemes, and has a growing portfolio of FTSE 250 clients in the automotive and food manufacturing sectors.
Whilst experience in the power/energy or manufacturing sectors could be an advantage, BasePower is primarily looking for a self-starter with a track record of solutions selling in a business-to-business environment, who is capable of building relationships at the highest level.
The role is suitable for flexible working. You don’t have to be based in London but will need to travel regularly to the offices near Waterloo station, and of course to manufacturing sites throughout the country.
This is a supported hire position: successful hires who have taken a career break of 2+ years will receive coaching support through the transition period from Women Returners.
- Reporting directly to the Chief Operating Officer you will be responsible for the client’s customer acquisition and commercial development efforts.
- You will be responsible for developing prospects, generating leads and obtaining introductory meetings. After that, you will coordinate our internal resources to ensure that customer needs are reflected in the business development. You will manage the commercial negotiation and closure of key contracts and maintain the customer relationship during construction and operations.
- A successful track record in B2B solution based sales in a variety of sectors will be essential along with contractual awareness and competence.
- Experience in the power/energy, engineering or manufacturing sectors could be an advantage but is not essential.
