We're Hiring Business Development Managers in Leeds

Leeds-List is a digital agency and media platform. We create awesome content campaigns for our clients, using data science and direct response tactics to drive industry leading results.

But at the same time, we value work-life balance. Working over is the exception, not the rule. 28 days holiday comes as standard, and that’s on top of your bank holidays and your birthday off. Plus, there’s flexible working, office dogs and the odd VIP invite.

As our Business Development Manager you’ll help us bring in the bacon. Every deal you make helps to fuel our growth, so we’ll give you the freedom you need to thrive – complete autonomy to deliver revenue, independently and without supervision.

You’ll build and manage your own pipeline, bringing in clients and pushing deals across the line. It’s not easy, it takes confidence, charm and wicked negotiation skills, but you can make real strides here.

Even better, your bonus is uncapped – there’s no limit to your earning potential, because when you succeed, we succeed. And your future? In a business growing as fast as ours, the sky is your limit.

So what do you think? Want to join a fast-growing scale-up with ambitious plans for the future? Want to be part of something really exciting? Get in touch.
