c£Very Competitive + Bonus + Blue Chip Benefits

You may be wondering why an organisation like a port needs a Business Development Manager.

And, on the face of it, it's a fair question. After all, they're a major British port. People have already heard of them and know what they do.

Or, at least, they think they know what they do. But you'd be amazed what they don't know.

Recently, our client undertook the most extensive programme of investment in contemporary times. This programme will see the operational land base capacity expand by 20%, deliver new refrigerated cargo infrastructure, provide a new 250-berth marina and create opportunity for further property development.

As such, there are massive opportunities for growth, and that's where you come in.

Clearly, cargo plays a massive part in the company's activities, and this will be your initial focus. The Port already has an extensive customer base for you to engage with and strengthen relationships. But they want to extend their customer portfolio to increase business with ferries, perishables, and construction sectors.

Coupled with this will be creating new relationships with logistics providers, hauliers, supply chain, and agency businesses within London, the South East and further afield through various activities to proactively seek and introduce new business to the Port.

During all your activities, there will be a constant undercurrent of actively promoting the Port through trade events in the UK and worldwide to increase awareness of its capabilities.

As for your background, you'll be a highly competent Business Development Expert with significant experience in the cargo industry in a port, haulage, logistics, supply chain or related sectors.

You will need an excellent understanding of the freight and logistics industries. In particular, the construction, unitised or ferry freight sector, Agri bulks or general cargo handling operations. Plus, you'll already have established relationships across the industry, particularly with customers, agents, and the cargo supply chain.

You'll also have solid marketing experience and be proficient in developing and implementing proposals in a highly commercial environment.

So, if you'd like to take on this fascinating challenge, please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, quoting reference LX 1232217
