An exciting and unique opportunity has arisen at Invest Bristol & Bath for a Senior Business Executive to be a part of the Accounts and Business Development team.
Invest Bristol & Bath is the Inward Investment agency for the region which sits within the West of England Combined Authority. We are committed to delivering against annual agreed targets for new jobs created in the region. Critical to this is the ability to manage complex and high volume enquiries to attract and support businesses, as well as promoting the city region.
24 months contract with the potential to extend depending on future funding.
About the role
The role requires skill in persuading businesses from anywhere in the world to grow in the region. This could range from supporting a company to establish a new HQ or building your own business networks to generate new investment opportunities in the region.
Team player; you will have an eye for imaginative solutions to complex problems and unique creative ways of attracting new opportunities. You will enjoy and thrive in working on a varied and sometimes challenging case load. You will be confident and skilled in forging productive relationships with partners and be an effective networker. You will be able to work flexibly and to travel as required.
You don’t need to have inward investment experience, or be from a public sector background, but you will be someone who is a natural salesperson, drawing on relevant experience you have in a B2B environment.
