Hungry, passionate and looking to increase your income? Why not join a forward thinking and ambitious design and marketing agency like Why Media.

Since 2010 Why Media has been working with established and aspiring companies to launch, grow and enhance their brand and business needs through effective, bespoke and honest design and marketing services.

As we approach our tenth year, Why Media is looking to build on their already strong reputation in delivering innovation and marketing by investing in a passionate, self-motivated and hungry individual who will be responsible for getting the brand in front of established businesses we would love to collaborate with. 

Although previous business development experience is preferred, this is not essential as training will be given. However, the chosen individual will be incredibly hungry and ambitious,

This role requires somebody with a career focused mind, somebody who has their eye on the end goal - to grow Why Media and ultimately grow their income and skillset.

Why Media currently consists of eight individuals, all of whom are specialists in their field and work closely together in the interest of the company and their own life goals. 

As Why Media’s Business Development Associate, you will be the brand ambassador, the face of the company and will set first impressions. Therefore, it is imperative that you are presented impeccably, are well spoken and are able to adapt in accordance with different nationalities and cultures you may meet. 

Your base will be our office in Hertford, Hertfordshire however, due to our close proximity to London and our already established presence in locations like Mayfair, you will be expected to travel into the capital most weeks to attend pitches and build relationships with potential clients.  In addition to London, Why Media is also keen to increase brand exposure and client levels in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Lincolnshire. Therefore, these locations will be at the forefront of your sales strategy. 

Confidence and an open mind to feedback and constructive criticism are key for this role. Although we live in an age of social media, WhatsApp and text messaging, our existing sales strategy has proven to be most successful through verbal communications - picking up the phone and speaking to people (how retro).  This will also be accompanied by attending networking events, direct mail pieces, email marketing and any other initiatives you put your mind to.

 

Here’s an overview of your responsibilities 

  • Being the ‘Brand Ambassador’ for Why Media

  • Identifying new companies which fit our ‘client criteria’ 

  • Setting up and attending pitches

  • Identifying and executing new initiatives that can support business growth

  • Building new client relationships 

  • Liaising with accounts to ensure new clients are set up on our system

  • Liaising with Account Managers to ensure new projects are handed over formerly
