As the Business Development & VWV approach Executive you will work closely with the VWV approach Business Development Manager and VWV approach Administrator in either our Watford or our Birmingham office, to identify prospects, on board new members, manage the referral process, host events and develop and grow relationships with member firms. You will also initially be responsible for managing new enquiries through the VWV website and reception team as a way of getting to know the business.
You will have business development experience preferably gained in a professional services environment. You will have the confidence to meet with decision makers in law firms, to explain the objectives of the network and to successfully bring on board new members. Previous experience of working in a legal environment is not essential but would be beneficial.
For more than 10 years VWV has committed itself to sitting at the heart of its local legal communities, by running the free VWV approach legal referral and support network for small to mid-sized law firms. Putting the client at the centre of the firm is one of the Firm's core values and your work with the VWV approach network and the New Enquiries Team will see you putting this value into practice every day.
VWV is a full service law firm ranked as a leader in both the Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 directories. Our firm-wide core values of teamwork and collaboration, putting the client at the centre of the firm and taking a commercial approach ensure a dedicated and expert service to all of our clients.
