This is a very exciting opportunity for an experienced Business Development Manager to join one of the largest international law firms as an integral member of the business development team for the firm's industry-leading banking practice, with specific responsibility for the London Financial Services Regulatory team.
The role holder will provide day-to-day, business development support and advice within the banking practice, working closely with lawyers to drive the BD activities of this team in London. The Business Development Manager will work closely with and be guided by the Financial Services Regulatory Partners, the Senior Manager for Financial Institutions Group and the Global Head of Banking Business Development. Key responsibilities will include working with the lead partners on their client development plans; leading on pitches and contributing product insight into cross-practice and cross-border pitches; coordinating practical marketing support for profile raising activities, such as speaking at industry conferences, client seminars and organising events; managing the process of experience collection, credentials and CVs; taking part in client listening activity; ensuring the fee earner and global BD teams are kept up-to-date on the latest legal, regulatory and market developments; and other ad-hoc business development support.
Pre-requisites for this role include a good degree or equivalent and preferably post-graduate qualifications. Legal or professional services experience is essential as is an ability work to deadlines, juggle multiple projects and deliver under pressure. Knowledge of the sector is useful but by no means essential, although candidates for the role of Business Development Manager will need to display a real enthusiasm to develop an in-depth understanding of the global financial services sector.
