Business Development Executive

Vacancy posted: Friday, 14 October 2016

Salary: 15,000 - 18,000 + bonus
Location: Edinburgh

Job ref. no.: RL93052

Are you passionate about tourism and everything to do with it?  Are you an innovative social media guru with around two years’ previous sales experience?  If so, this could be the perfect opportunity for you!

This exciting young company is looking for a self-motivated and creative Business Development Executive to expand their business and coordinate their dynamic team of tourism assistants. 

Part of your role will be operational, recruiting and training new team members, organising rotas and motivating the team to hit targets.  As a result, we are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic individual with previous supervisory experience, ideally from a sales or retail background. 

Secondly, you will be tasked with identifying and maximising new business development opportunities.  You will be given the chance to let your creativity loose and a good understanding of how to utilise social media for marketing purposes is vital.  In addition, you will be expected to pro-actively engage with potential partners in the tourism industry, such as language schools, tour operators and travel agents.

Previous sales experience with the proven ability to exceed targets is essential, as are professional interpersonal skills.  If you happen to be a Spanish speaker, then you will also have the opportunity to use your language skills (although this is not essential)!

In return for your efforts, you will be rewarded with a salary commensurate with your experience, plus a performance-related bonus structure.

If you love the tourism industry and possess the relevant skills and experience for this role, please send your CV or call Rhian Lewis now!


This vacancy is being advertised on behalf of Stafffinders, which is operating as an employment agency.
