Our Client is a very successful, privately owned Management Consultancy with a wealth of experience in delivering both Fleet and Retail Aftersales Programmes to major Volume and Specialist Car Importers within the UK and Ireland. Specialising in improving Aftersales systems and procedures, they have an enviable client base and now wish to appoint a Business Development Manager to take the products into new markets during 2012 and beyond. 
This new role will report into the Board of Directors and have full responsibility for both selective existing accounts and developing new business. Our ideal candidate will, therefore, already be familiar with Aftersales Programmes, and be capable of presenting themselves and representing the company at Director level within key Manufacturer/Importer clients, Dealer Groups, Fleet and Contract Hire/Leasing companies as well as some smaller independent suppliers.
As well as being able to handle current accounts and develop new business, we are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced and dedicated Business Development Manager who understands the pressures of both Parts and Service operations within business environments. With strong IT literacy and understanding of DMS programmes, the position is a nationwide role and can, therefore, be based from home four days a week but reporting into the office in North West England once a week.
  1. Are you capable of managing current accounts and developing new business in a well run independent Consultancy, with an emphasis on Aftersales programmes?
  1. Can you manage your own time and work independently in a role that will require regular travel throughout the UK?
  1. Do you have a very strong understanding of Aftersales DMS systems, procedures, on-line booking and menu pricing systems?
  1. Can you take this established business into new markets?
  1. Do you have outstanding presentation and negotiating skills that are synonymous with key Manufacturer/Importer client representations?
