Business Development Manager

We are looking for either a Business Development Manager or an experienced Account Manager interested in business development. The right person will have an irresistible mix of strategic ability and interpersonal skills, and be able to work that magic over both single phone calls and prolonged business courtships.

We’re after someone able to embody the no-waffle Waste culture. That will involve developing our distinctively focussed approach to new business: not making 100s of cold calls or spamming on Linkedin, but taking a considered approach based on our real values. We offer top drawer work without the jargon that often comes with it, and we want you to communicate that. 

Your responsibilities:

  • Develop and lead our new business strategy
  • Follow-up leads regularly and keep a consistent pipeline of new business opportunities
  • Design campaigns and activities that will generate new leads
  • Keep the CRM system up to date with detailed information 
  • Provide regular reports to the leadership team on the pipeline and other new business activity
  • Help turn client briefs into clear and effective internal briefs


A little bit about you:

  • Excellent communication skills in person, on email and over the phone.
  • Proactive and able to work independently once briefed
  • Presentable, friendly, trustworthy
  • Able to build a rapport easily
  • As a strategic thinker, you will be in charge of designing and leading our new business strategy
  • Excellent understanding of Social Media and its utility in business development
  • Highly organised
  • Passionate about all things digital
  • Good understanding of public relations will be a bonus


A bit about us

Waste is a 12-year-old creative agency filled with digital natives and analogue enthusiasts who combine to make beautiful, expertly-crafted content and smart comms. Like every 12-year old, we brim with a certain kind of mischief. Unlike most 12-year olds we work hard and care deeply about getting stuff right!

We have offices in London and Los Angeles, and good friends in Finland, San Francisco, South Africa, Houston, Kosovo and New Zealand.

With a passion for the unconventional and a no-fuss attitude, we take pride in delivering amazing results for a great list of clients like Supercell, British Gas, Sega, Camelot, Warner Bros. and Turner Broadcasting. But don’t take our word for it, check out our work and accolades.
