A fabulous & unique opportunity has arisen with my client, a top UK property auction company who pride themselves on their innovative approach to marketing and ultimately selling property throughout the UK via both live and online auctions.
In order to continue their upward curve of both performance and demand for their service, they are now seeking a Business Development Manager to join their expanding team and help continue the rapid growth witnessed in 2017.
The client provides a 'bolt on' and white labelled auction management service to estate agents across the UK, partnering with both smaller independents and corporate agents alike.
This role offers a fantastic opportunity to the right candidate. You would be field based, with an acceptance to attend a monthly meeting at a desired location, in order to present results and reports, (overnight stay in hotel may be required). You will be expected to gain appointments with estate agents in your given geographic locality - mainly sourced from self generated cold leads. You will be capable of conveying in great detail the service provided, and in a manner which ensures that any prospect agent is converted into a client/Partner Agent. As well as developing the business with new agents you would be expected to oversee a continual passing of potential auction property stock from your expanding database of Partner Agents; whilst also providing ongoing progressive training and support to existing agents in your area.
You will possess at least 3 years experience within estate agency or within a BDM role, and have a proven track record within a sales environment.
Your key tasks would include:
Making appointments to meet new and existing agents
Understand your agents needs
In depth product/service knowledge
Ability to create and offer presentations to promote the auction facility
Create new associations to work in partnership
Keep in contact with existing clients in person and by telephone

The successful candidate should have:
Excellent sales and negotiation skills
Enthusiasm to learn and teach
Ability to thrive in a team and as an individual
Good communication and ‘people skills’
Confidence and self motivation is key
Good personal organisation and time management skills
The willingness to develop in-depth knowledge of property auction
A good business sense and a professional manner
The ability to demonstrate resilience and a tenacious character

You will require a full UK driving licence.
This would suit a candidate who has previous property experience and someone seeking a different aspect within the property sales space.
You will also be expected to work 40 hours per week.
