Permanent — full time

About the role

Storm ID is an award-winning digital transformation consultancy with clients spanning the public sector, healthcare, financial services and early-stage start-ups. 

In a world that is more reliant than ever on digital services, we help our clients transform processes and experiences, re-imagine their business models and even entire companies.  

As a Business Development Manager, you are responsible for the generation of new business and overseeing the entire process of contracts and bids. 

About you

You will join a growing business development team with the opportunity to make and define our growth within key areas of our client base. You will report directly to our Business Development Director and work with various team leads to consult with ongoing proposals of work.

One more thing – research indicates that marginalised groups of people may not apply for jobs unless they meet 100% of the qualifications. We also know that professionals come from many backgrounds. We value people who bring unique perspectives and new knowledge to our team. If you believe you're qualified, but don't "check all the boxes", please submit an application. 

What you'll do

  • ensure effective transition to other relevant Storm teams once the sales process is completed 
  • attending key events and conferences for networking and business development purposes

Did we mention that we offer flexible working which includes remote or hybrid. We want to make sure our people have the flexibility to be the best they can be. We also offer a fully remote/ virtual recruitment process and onboarding to ensure that we can accommodate as many individuals as possible from across the UK.
