We are looking for a Senior Business Development Manager to drive sales and develop a market for Practical Law, a newly launched in Australia legal know-how solution. We help lawyers practice more efficiently, deliver greater value to clients and reduce outside spend, and target key decision makers across blue chip corporates and leading professional services organizations, as well as government sectors. Already a market leading solution globally, this is an opportunity to carve a new market.
This role will be specifically focused on the corporate, in-house legal market, and your key priorities will be new business development and building increasing value within the client base to achieve overall revenue targets. You will attain these results by proactively engaging with new whitespace clients and by working with our wider sales and leadership team to develop close relationships with prospects and customers to understand their business and provide them with a targeted solution.
The successful candidate will need to demonstrate strong, proactive, new business development experience, together with solution selling and consultative sales experience, including demonstrated experience managing long sales cycles.
