We are seeking highly-driven, inspirational Business Development Managers to spearhead expansion of one of the UK's most exciting educational brands in our home and international markets.
We're the world's leader in a very niche sector: We provide adventurous, hospital work experience placements for aspiring medical and nursing students in unfamiliar environments and cultures around the world. Over the past six years we've provided more than 10,000 placements, and anticipate continuing growth at 70% a year.
To drive the continuation of this growth, we are creating high-level Business Development Manager positions in our UK Head Office. This is a unique opportunity to join an energetic, inspiring and entrepreneurial company selling experiences that our customers a truly passionate about.
About the role:
First and foremost, your responsibility is to maximise sales of our international placements to students from your assigned region in line with company targets.
You will do this by reaching students interested in a career in healthcare (mainly medicine or nursing), introducing our brand, generating interest and excitement about our placements, and securing their registration fees.
Our product is most effectively sold by marketing direct to our customers i.e. students, rather than through third parties (such as universities, advisors etc).
We’re looking for creative individuals to bring new ideas and approaches, but your work is likely to include significant focus on digital advertising (Google AdWords, Facebook, Instagram etc.) and following up enquiries from potential customers to turn these into sales.
Our Business Development Managers usually start with a single assistant or intern and their team can grow in line with the number of sales being achieved.
You will be incredible. World Class. You will come in and drive sales at this crucial time of growth and you will be genuinely excited by the Gap Medics brand.
As one of four Business Development Managers covering our global market, you will be required to work independently and proactively with significant responsibility and autonomy. You will also have the opportunity to work with, and learn from, our Founder and experienced UK team.
You will bring to this role a balance of creative business development talent and a natural flair for sales, primarily by phone and email.
You will be an outstanding communicator, irresistibly charismatic, super ambitious and results orientated.
The basic starting salary is £28,000 p.a.
You will be eligible for a £10,000 annual bonus for achieving at least 100% of your sales target.
If you have questions about the role or about Gap Medics in general, please contact our UK Head Office and ask for Rachel Plummer (the phone number is on our website).
If we’ve not already made it clear, we’re looking for an amazingly talented individual to fill this challenging position.
To apply, please email your full C.V. and also use your covering letter to answer this question:
You have a budget of £5,000 and three weeks to make 50 new sales of Gap Medics placements. What would you do and how would you spend the money?
