The benefits of being a business development manager

1. Get the full 360 experience

Business development management is one of the only jobs in recruitment where you get the full 360 experience. By working closely alongside clients and candidates, you’ll really get the best of both worlds.

2. Spend time travelling around the country

You’ll spend a lot of your time travelling around the country, building and improving relationships in a face-to-face setting. Travelling to meet your clients also provides the perfect opportunity to advance your soft skills – from growing rapport and building trust to developing skills like negotiation, problem-solving and time management – your soft skills will flourish in this job role.

3. No two days are the same

One of the best parts of working in business development is no two days are ever the same – it’s fast-paced and you’ll often find yourself under pressure working to tight deadlines.

4. Work closely with clients & candidates

By working closely with candidates and clients, you’ll become an expert in the industry and gain a greater perspective of their needs so your team can best support them. As an industry expert, you’ll provide a bespoke service – and ultimately become a driving force for the business.

5. Excel in a team environment

Do you thrive in a team environment? You’ll work as part of a close successful team and with the wider recruitment teams as part of your daily work – so there’s plenty of socialising involved (especially with Athona’s weekly Friday Social’s).

6. Become proactive & action-orientated

Each day, you’ll get the chance to be proactive and action-orientated, tapping into the power of your research and analytical skills to complete your goals.
