You’ll need to know all about:

  • Creating short and long term strategic business development plans
  • Understanding what it takes to hit monthly targets
  • Sourcing, developing and seeing through opportunities
  • Writing strong and successful tender and proposal documents
  • Presenting creative concepts with confidence
  • Taking ownership of the relationships that you create and maintaining strong links
