Due to an exceptional year, Corporate Traveller is seeking a Business Development Manager to join their growing team in Newcastle.

Within this position, your main responsibility will be to sell our business travel management service to new clients who spend between £50,000 - £2M per year on international travel.

Your role will involve finding leads, making an appointment over the phone, and closing the deal with a face-to-face meeting. Once you've bought a new client on board, you'll work closely with a team of experienced Business Travel Consultants who will use their extensive travel knowledge and airfare expertise to deliver an unbeatable travel management service to your client. To achieve in this role, you will need:

  • Experience in meeting sales-targets through finding and qualifying leads over the phone
  • Winning accounts through face-to-face meetings
  • Ability to develop a network of SME clients (approximately £50,000 - £2M annual travel spend)

Corporate Traveller's company culture is like no other. We're exceptionally proud of our service and it shows. Furthermore, there is nothing stagnant about this sales position. By joining a global travel giant, there are endless opportunities to further your sales career, rapidly move into a senior management position, take a place on our fast-track leadership programme, or explore the possibilities in our overseas offices such as New York.

As part of the Flight Centre global force, you will gain exclusive access to a myriad of award-winning benefits. These include:

  • Generous commission structure and uncapped earning potential, which makes our Business Development Managers some of the highest earners in the industry
  • Discounted travel and excellent incentives from the world's top travel providers
  • Worldwide social events that are industry renowned (this year we took our top performers to Cancuun)
  • Comprehensive training and support from successful Business Development Managers
  • Exceptional career progression programme with global opportunities
  • Fast-track leadership programme, which is designed to find and develop the future leaders of our business
  • Pension scheme and free financial planning consultations from an in-house team of financial advisors
  • Discounted personal training sessions, massage, physiotherapy, corporate gym memberships and tax-free bikes
  • Opportunity to take a 3 month sabbatical after 5 years

Furthermore, you will join the highest earners in the travel industry. Our established Business Development Managers earn over £80,000, with many quickly moving into leadership positions as our company continues to grow rapidly. This year, our top novice Business Development Managers earned over £50,000 in their first 12 months.
