Overview

Who we're looking for

Our Tax Sales and Marketing team are looking for a Senior Business Development Professional to support one of our four key markets within Tax to manage and support the associated pipeline in line with the firmwide growth ambition. 

Tax has one of the largest and most varied client and product bases at the Firm, ranging from core Tax services, workforce, employment and legal services. The business is split into four key markets and the role will be embedded into the relevant markets, developing trusted relationships with key stakeholders to understand the pipeline dynamics and provide real time sales performance insight. This will be used to create meaningful interventions on specific opportunities, enable robust qualification across our new opportunities and ensure that the wider sales and marketing function is mobilized effectively across the portfolio.

The role will create best practice around our opportunity management through our client relationship tool, the awareness and application of our opportunity protocols, and also make sure that we are able to identify key new must win opportunities through a defined pipeline management cadence. An influence over sales performance will be applied through the delivery of a consistent qualification methodology, and through connecting with our Bids and proposals community on key opportunities to ensure we have suitable coaching support.

This role will report to the Head of Sales for Tax, and enable the execution of  the sales strategy driven through the Markets and Services Partner for Tax and the Business Strategy Director.

We are looking for someone who can build relationships quickly,  who has strong communication skills, and who is able to influence a wide network around a change programme in how we manage our pipeline to change outcomes. With substantial growth plans for the coming years and a large pipeline we are seeking to recruit individuals to support us on realizing the market opportunity.

Your responsibilities

  • Embed a pipeline cadence and rhythm to enable proactive identification of new opportunities, and the mobilisation of the existing portfolio.

  • Review pipeline trends to understand sales performance, with translation to business messages that our Partners and Directors can act upon.

  • Deliver qualification (win plan) discussions with engagement teams to drive opportunity acceleration and maximise win rate.

  • Use pipeline trend data to identify onsell and whitespace opportunities for Tax.

  • Drive awareness and application of our opportunity protocols across the relevant pipeline to ensure confidence in our forecasting and increased pipeline hygiene. 

  • Create engagement in the use of Salesforce and enthusiasm around the value and insight it can generate to aid improved sales performance.

  • Understand the wider firmwide pipeline trends and dynamics to provide meaningful context to the Tax leadership team around performance.

Skills and experience required

  • Demonstrated experience in a business development role within PwC, or in other service-focused organisations. Experience of Professional Services would be preferable albeit not essential.

  • Experience of working with Salesforce is preferential, and a passion for analytics would be beneficial.

  • Strong experience of developing and managing relationships with key decision makers and stakeholders.

  • Ability to influence and champion change to support defined sales transformation programmes.

  • Evidence of working as part of a wider sales and marketing/ business development function towards a set of common objectives.

  • Strong business and commercial acumen allowing you to analyse and interpret data, whilst being able to create meaningful business messages.

  • Strong understanding of the sales cycle and the required components to promote and drive a successful opportunity.
