Business Development Manager - Europe

  • Join a well-established Managed-Print Services Supplier across Europe, taking the lead on New business acquisition;

  • Deliver Strategic Proposals and close down deals with major Clients in FMCG, Apparel and Automotive;

  • Work in a dynamic work-environment, with international colleagues, travel extensively and be rewarded with an excellentpackage;

Sound like something for you…?

Our client, with their origins in the UK, but reaching out extensively to the Print and Print-management industries across the BeNeLux, Germany, France and Turkey for example, are a Company on the move! Having almost doubled their revenue scores in 2018 across Europe alone, they have Mid-tier to Enterprise Level Customers, who they supply with top-of-the-range Print, Print-Management and Design services, along with other Consulting and Project Management service, aimed at maximising the Client's marketing project.

Due to very strong market conditions and as part of the European Department's growth strategy, they are looking for an experienced Business Development Director - with a good understanding of the Print & Digital Industry in the BeNeLux, if not across Europe - who will be responsible for winning new tenders and projects.

You will work with the existing Accounts and Delivery team, to work out what wins can be made with current clients, but the main focus will be to go to the market, approach new prospects and keep a detailed sales funnel, which will hopefully end up in securing new Service agreements. A detailed Sales & Business development plan will also be developed.

In a role where you will travel extensively to meet prospects and also attend trade fairs, this role will require someone who understands the market, but is also a natural sales professional, who knows how to tailor specific pitches, can deal with longer-term sales cycles, but also look for quicker victories.

Why you should apply for this job…

  • You will work in a truly forward-thinking Company, in a lean Division, but with decades of International experience in Print and POS;
  • An excellent work-environment, whether in the office, or on the road, with an excellent salary, Commission structure and package;
  • The chance to work with and close deals with some the coolest brands in Fashion, Retail and Electronics for example;
  • Excellent support and Accounts services and the autonomy to do your job the way you want to;
  • The chance to take your Sales leadership to the next level!

Skills you'll need…

  • Ideally you will be educated to Degree Level - Bachelors/HBO or equivalent - in a Business or Marketing discipline - but not essential;
  • It is essential you have experience in the Creative/Print, Print Management or Managed Print Services Industry across the Netherlands, or Europe - covering all aspects of POS, POP, Design and Project Management;
  • A minimum of 6 years Business Development or Commercial Sales experience at a Senior Level, engaging to major brands in FMCG, Retail, Brands etc.;
  • You must be a natural sales 'hunter', but operate in a strategic way - you can identify and confident approach new prospects, but present solutions in a technical way;
  • You will be a strategic thinker and able to use your market knowledge and network to your advantage;
  • You are hard-working and diligent, but also a key team player and can engage enthusiastically with the Accounts and delivery team;
  • Willing to travel, within the Netherlands, but also to the UK, Belgium, France, Germany, Southern Europe etc. as required;
  • You must be fluent in English and ideally Dutch, with another European language as an advantage;
