Are you the proactive, creative and collaborative person we’ve been looking for to help us drive our New Business strategy?

You could be the ideal person to join our team and help take Apadmi to the next level as our New Business Director.

The opportunity

Since we launched ten years ago, the Apadmi team has built a reputation and client base that we think means we can rightly call ourselves the best in the UK.

We regularly win awards for our clients who include BBC, NHS, Argos, Co-op, Which? and United Utilities.

We’re looking for a proven, strategic business development professional who can join us as a New Business Director and help us capitalise on our fantastic work to-date.

What you’ll do

We’ve set ourselves ambitious growth plans and are targeting bigger, longer term relationships.

You’ll be given the autonomy to find and establish new client relationships as the senior point of contact, and work with the Client Services team to grow them.

Reporting to the Chief Commercial Officer, some of your key responsibilities as New Business Director will include:

New Business Development

  • Help develop and deliver a strategic sales plan in line with the company growth targets

  • Plan and support Apadmi’s entry into new and emerging technology sectors

Team management

  • Develop a comprehensive revenue generation pipeline that will help deliver Apadmi’s revenue targets
  • Execute a sustainable revenue stream that will deliver target revenues in line with budgets and strategy
  • Develop long-term working relationships and collaborative agreements with key clients
  • Identify current and possible future trends, possible opportunities and necessary corrective actions from reported data

What we need

  • At least 4 years of experience at a senior level in Business Development, preferably in the technology/digital/professional services industry
  • Excellent communicator, written and presentation
  • Strong, positive team manager
  • Ability to operate comfortably at Board level
  • Self-driven, results orientated
  • Problem solver
  • Natural networker
  • Forward planner who critically assesses all output
  • Well-presented (when you need to be!)
  • Ability to embrace change and apply to working practices

Why you should join us

There are plenty of benefits to working with Apadmi – here are just a few…

  • Bonus and pension schemes

    You won’t just get a competitive salary at Apadmi – we have a twice-yearly bonus and healthy pension scheme for all employees.
  • Fitness fanatics

    For anyone wanting to keep fit and healthy you can join in with our football team, cross-fit sessions or running club.
  • Flexible working

    We’re an agile mobile tech company so we don’t follow the traditional 9-5. You’ll get flexible working hours at Apadmi that fit around commutes and commitments.
  • Free breakfast

    Fresh fruit and a plethora of bread loaves are delivered each morning to our HQ, plus we have free hot drinks throughout the day, so early birds won’t go hungry at our office.
  • Free parking at HQ

    We know finding somewhere to park for the day can be tricky as well as expensive, but our main office at Warren Bruce Court offers free and secure parking around the clock.
  • Social events

    Whether it’s a beer after work, or a few cocktails at the Christmas party, we have a packed social calendar with plenty of events for our team to let their hair down.
  • The Federation

    Work from home, HQ or our new satellite office. We’ve expanded to include a city centre location on Federation Street in the heart of Manchester.
  • Training & Development

    We’re always looking for ways to improve, and that includes investing in staff, whether it’s internal workshops, attending key industry events or signing up for training courses.
