About You

As a Business Development Executive, you'll be entrepreneurial, target oriented and passionate about helping small businesses. Working in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment will excite you along with an interest in the fintech industry and all that we are doing to save small business owners time and money. You'll be target focused and confident at handling objections to achieve your revenue goals. You'll also have an excellent telephone manner, will be outgoing and thrive working in a close-knit team. You'll possess excellent commercial awareness, constantly seeking new opportunities to generate revenue, and will be happy in a field sales role approaching prospects in person. Passion, drive and enthusiasm are a must.

Some of the things you'll be doing:

1) Conversion - Phone Based:

  • You'll be calling potential members that have downloaded the app - chasing.

  • You will walk these potential members through our signup process, answer their questions and use your persuasion skills to reassure them that we are the best and convert them into members.

  • You'll work with the team to ensure that the members have provided all the correct documentation and will troubleshoot any issues that come their way.

2) Business Development - Phone Based + Field Based:

  • You'll call the leads, build rapport with them, understand their businesses and will upsell relevant products or services to help them thrive

  • You'll work cross-functionally with other departments to understand upcoming product launches and ensure that you can pitch these to our members

  • You'll source your own leads via:

    • Cold calling

    • LinkedIn

    • Field Sales (you may be required to go out and about to do Field Sales on the streets/ at events for ~2 days per week)

  • You'll get to know these leads/prospective members, and how their businesses plan to operate and will recommend relevant products and services to help them thrive. You'll be entirely comfortable with cold calls, cold emails and cold outreach, and will not need extensive coaching on this.
