Business Development


Why We Need This Position

In order for us to remain at the forefront of our ever-evolving industry, we need a crack business development team to get way out ahead of things: identifying opportunities, tracking industry trends, forging connections, understanding what clients want and need, and effectively showcasing TEAGUE’s value proposition in response. That’s where you come in. 


Who We’re Looking For

First and foremost, you are a systems thinker capable of identifying and understanding relevant industry trends through research. This includes reading industry research reports, attending internal/external conferences, SME/mentor feedback, leveraging internal resources, talking with partners directly, and gathering third party resources. Second, you will use your understanding of lead and demand generation to identify suitable target clients and partners, learn their pain points, and identify the ways in which TEAGUE might support them. You will then engage those prospective clients and partners by creating compelling communications that presents TEAGUE’s value proposition and the appropriate offer. You will also assist with execution and deal management by communicating and reporting with senior stakeholders, track blocking issues, and help to drive resolutions. Finally, you will be responsible for developing post-deal governance and execution plans and developing KPIs to demonstrate achieved business value. If you’ve got the diplomatic and interpersonal skills of a head of state, are able to forge strong relationships with both clients and colleagues from a diverse range of backgrounds, are a strong communicator, have a strong record of forging successful business relationships, and are excited to contribute to the growth of a leading creative agency, have we got a job for you.
