Job Vacancy

Business Development Manager

Role Description

We are looking for a couple of people to join our Business Development, Sales and Marketing team to support our growth and increase in customer facing activities.


The roles available are flexible depending on the skills and experience of the people who join, but it is expected to be along the lines of a Business Development and Marketing Assistant and/or a Business Development and Sales Manager. It is more important to us to find the right person than the job title so if you are looking for something a bit different or between the two roles mentioned, please reach out and have a chat with us!


The BD team at JET looks after everything from marketing, PR, and early engagement to bid and proposal writing, to closing sales and signing contracts. We also get involved in project delivery with things like market research, user requirements, and report writing.


Joining JET will be an exciting opportunity to work in a fast paced and fast growing SME, learn about things you didn’t even know existed, and be part of a friendly team. As we grow there will be plenty of opportunity for career and role development, and due to being an SME there will always be a chance to work on new skills as we work together and support each other as a team.

  • Excellent written English
  • Depending on role, some to extensive experience or demonstrable skills in business development, sales, or marketing
  • Able to easily use Word, PowerPoint, and Excel

We are a small, friendly team working closely to grow the business. We are looking for people to join us that are equally willing to get stuck in and support colleagues for our mutual goals.
