My client, an international law firm specialising in tax, trust and estate planning for private clients is looking for a marketing and business development professional to support their Business Division in Europe, with a focus on charities, corporate and commercial real estate practice areas - this will be on a twelve month fixed-term contract basis. 
Although business development is key component, this role is not heavily focussed on pitch production – you will be working on engaging marketing campaigns and helping raise the firm’s profile.
Key responsibilities:
  • Supporting the team on all aspects of marketing and business development activity to win work from new contacts to the firm, and from existing clients.
  • Playing a role in relation to some of our major divisional and firmwide campaigns and marketing projects.
  • Preparing pitch documents.
  • Taking responsibility for events and webinars, ensuring the entire process is followed from conception to follow up, as well as attending these events.
  • Assisting with the legal directories process for the teams within the division.
  • Working closely with the CRM Manager on specific pipeline management initiatives
  • Supporting on central projects.
  • Building relationships with marketing and BD colleagues globally.
  • Although the BD team is supported by specialists in Digital, PR, Brand and CRM, the person in the role should be able to – in fact relish the chance to – turn their hand to the full marketing mix at times in supporting our practice and sector groups.
Skills and attributes:
  • Passionate, ambitious, enthusiastic.
  • Someone who adds creativity and generates ideas, always looking for ways to improve what we do.
  • Highly organised and happy to juggle lots of projects at any time – both day to day deadlines with longer term change programmes.
  • High level of attention to detail, an interest in a rigorous approach to all projects.
  • The tenacity to follow up on ideas and to see project through to their natural conclusion.
  • Emotionally intelligent and able to flex your style depending on who or teams you are talking to.
  • Confidence in dealing with stakeholders.
