Business / Growth Director

London

Experiment. Try new things. Drive what you are passionate about. Fail interestingly, succeed spectacularly. These are the sorts of things we’ll give you opportunity and leeway to do.

As a Futurice Business / Growth Director for our London office, you will work in a multi-disciplinary team together with some of the UK’s most talented consultants in software engineering, design and business strategy. With your drive to build trusted customer relationships over the long-term, you’ll help create the conditions for them to deliver extraordinary results for our clients.

You’re passionate about doing sales work the right way - by leading and advising clients from the very first conversation and ensuring their problems are clearly defined before prescribing solutions. You know what it takes to effectively develop global accounts from modest beginnings to large-scale multi-years programmes that deliver impact across business units. You understand that the best form of business development is exceptional execution, and you look for ways to continually support and collaborate with project and client teams.

Sales at Futurice is not a separate function. It's an integral part of how we support our clients, meaning your responsibility extends from idea to service launch and everything in between.
