Summary of vacancy

Are you experienced in detailed bid writing and winning new business? 

As a Regional Business Development Manager at SUEZ recycling and recovery UK, you will be contributing to an ever growing, established recycling and recovery company, helping customers to reduce their impact on the environment.  We are actively seeking a Business Development Manager with specific knowledge and experience within the Healthcare, Manufacturing and Education sectors.  The right candidate will be able to clearly demonstrate a successful track record of tendering for new business, operating within the £100k-£1M annual spend sphere.  With a keen eye for detail, you will be able to write strong method statements, present innovative solutions to clients, create outstanding case studies and compile detailed financial models for review within the regional team.

When you join SUEZ, you get more than a brand-new role. Your work will help us deliver innovative and environmentally responsible solutions for resource 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 your area. That means spotting development opportunities and making sure SUEZ, recycling and recovery UK, is invited to bid for strategically important regional contracts. You will be developing tailored responses and giving client presentations that will result in new additions to our regional portfolio.

When a new customer agrees to join us, you will be the central point in negotiating and configuring a contract solution. 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 market place 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 (annualised value of c75K - £1M) therefore you will be financially aware and commercially astute. You will have demonstrable experience of writing successful bids for new business.

You will have worked in a senior sales 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 knowledge is desirable, but it is not essential, as industry training can be given. However, strong demonstrable sales experience and previous success is a must have.

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.
