Business Development Consultant

Business Development Consultant (London/Reading)


AND Introduction

At AND, we accelerate the development of digital capabilities. In practice, that means helping ambitious leaders and organisations build the teams, products, processes and even operational structures they need to close the digital skills gap within their organisation today, so that they thrive tomorrow.


Clients rely on our experience, agility and craft skills across tech and business strategy, software development and product management to address some of the toughest challenges facing their businesses.


We bring aboard thinkers, tinkerers, passionate software craftspeople and inspiring technologists to help us solve these challenges. Together, we’re united by a sense of pragmatism, purpose and a deeply-held belief that digital products and technology alone won’t transform a business or save the world: it’s the people that count.


About You

As a Business Development Consultant, you will be responsible for supporting opportunities from initial contact through to close. As a result, you will need to be able to:

  • Create winning proposals - Work as part of the team meeting directly with clients to understand their needs, quality the opportunity, shape AND’s approach with our team of experts, and create compelling and winning proposals.
  • Understand the tech and professional services landscape - Bring a wider business and technology perspective. Understand the technical and business landscapes, to position AND as the partner of choice.
  • Win new clients as part of a team - Take the lead on smaller opportunities from initial contact to close. Navigate complex environments, pull together multiple strings to close effectively. Working as part of a small Business Development team.


To do that, it’s essential you bring the following:

  • Outstanding level of communication and stakeholder management.
  • 3+ years’ Professional Services / Consulting / Business Development experience.
  • A natural problem-solver, focussed on bringing ideas and solutions to the table.
  • Strong at building relationships quickly and following a well-organised collaborative way of working.
  • Comfortable in ambiguity and being part of a small, dynamic team; able to work autonomously, but also as an effective team player.
  • People and long-term relationship minded.
  • Organised, structured and creative.


This job can be based in either London or Reading.


It’s helpful if you also are:

  • Passionate about technology and the ways it is reshaping our world.
  • Committed to your ongoing learning and development.
  • Excellent at time management, with the ability to work to tight deadlines.
  • Able to balance needs and prioritise, to ensure best business results.
  • A team player, willing to help out where needed, with an approachable attitude.


Joining AND

From the work we deliver, to the way we serve and support our people, we work hard to ensure that there’s nowhere quite like AND. But joining a company is a two-way street: the fit has to work on both sides. So before you apply, here’s three key things to understand about us:

  • We’re built for people - like, real humans. Not ‘resources’ or ‘staff’. That means happiness and wellbeing really do matter to us, and we hate unnecessary hierarchy and bureaucracy.
  • There’s no well-trodden path ahead - AND is growing fast and forging a new trail. That’s exciting, and gives us all the autonomy and opportunity we love - but bear in mind it also demands focus, patience and resilience.
  • Diversity is a priority - After all, to build great products that a wide variety of different people love to use, we need a wide variety of people to help us build them. So diversity is more than a policy or a word: it’s business critical for us.

Sounds good? Great! Fill out the short application form below and we’ll be in touch.
