Summary of vacancy

Are you an experienced Senior Field Sales Executive or Business Development Manager with experience in Bids and Tenders? 

As a Business Development Manager at SUEZ, recycling and recovery UK, you will be contributing to an ever-growing established recycling and recovery company that is helping customers reduce their impact on the environment.

When you join SUEZ, you get more than a brand-new role. Your work will help us deliver innovative and environmentally responsible solutions for waste management.  You will get a chance to help us preserve and restore our planet’s natural capital for future generations. It’s a career that’s not only exciting, but full of opportunities as well as professional and personal fulfilment.

About the role

About the role

We have some great services to offer, and we want you to introduce them to new clients in the North Region.  That means spotting development opportunities and making sure SUEZ is invited to bid for strategically important regional contracts.  You will be developing and writing tailored responses and giving client presentations that will result in new additions to our regional Industrial and Commercial portfolio.

You will then ensure the new contract is implemented smoothly, so that the customer has a totally positive experience.

In short, you will be in charge of refining our regional sales proposition, building our profile within the marketplace and developing a market position for our brand.

What are the requirements?

You will have a track record of winning and developing new large customers with annualised revenue values of c75K - £1M.  Therefore, you will be financially aware and commercially astute.

You will have worked in a senior sales and development role before and know how to deliver high service levels, create a great customer experience and manage expectations whilst maximising profits. You will preferably have sound knowledge of the UK waste and resource management industry.  In addition you will have proven ability to construct, collate and deliver tender responses.  Strong demonstrable sales experience and previous success is a must have.

Who we are

At SUEZ the efficient and sustainable management of resources around the globe is at the heart of everything we do.  Respect – acting ethically and with integrity – is one of our core values. We’re passionate about the environment and believe in protecting our world.  Over 90,000 likeminded people worldwide makes for an incredible team, where collaboration and trust are part of the way we work.  With true team spirit, we can give our customers a standard of service that goes above and beyond and ensure that our local communities have access to essential water and waste services.

We thank our people for all they do with development opportunities, wide-ranging benefits and rewards that reflect their hard work. In a friendly, supportive environment, you’ll be inspired to grow and play your part in creating a better future for all.
