We’re looking for a sales and/or marketing experienced professional to join our commercial team. Ideally you’ll have three or more years commercial experience developing digital transformation and web platform opportunities with director-level clients.


Deeson delivers transformational digital work across a wide variety of sectors - and you’ll be a vital part of helping us build on our strong reputation and develop our business further. You’ll help clients develop valuable new projects through a consultative and engaging approach to business development. 


Our diverse client portfolio includes broadcaster ITV, top UK museums such as Imperial War Museums and Royal Museums Greenwich, public sector clients like the National Crime Agency and Food Standards Agency, not-for-profits including the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change and London Zoo, cultural venues such as the Southbank Centre, and the British Film Institute, the University of Derby and Middlesex University in the higher education sector as well as national brewer Shepherd Neame. 


If you can inspire and excite potential new clients, have a passion for digital transformation, and have the communication and collaboration skills to work effectively with Deeson teams then this could be a great role for you. You’ll get to work closely with highly talented digital practitioners and take your business development career to the next level in a supportive, challenging and high potential agency environment.


Deeson is part of The Panoply - a group of companies that work collaboratively with clients to solve complex business problems. Our sister agencies include Manifesto, Notbinary and FutureGov.


The role can be remote and/ or based in our busy London, Shoreditch or Canterbury offices and will involve some travel to events and potential client sites elsewhere in the UK.


Who we're looking for:

  • You’re self-motivated with the drive to achieve key performance indicators in the new business process. You’ll be able to work independently but also collaborate effectively with team members when that’s needed.
  • Strong interpersonal skills will be vital to help you identify core client issues, work out internal buying processes and secure “buy-in” and support from the right decision makers in potential client organisations.  
  • You have well-refined, value-based new business skills, ideally with experience of developing new business opportunities within blue chip organisations. 
  • You have strong experience of writing high quality proposals and bids. You’ll also be confident preparing impactful pitch presentations and leading pitches as part of an agency pitch team. 
  • Specific experience of digital transformation and web platform projects is important too, ideally in a comparable digital agency environment.
