Hiring Business Development reps and managers is a unique search because this role has to be as close as possible to a human representation of the company’s brand. If the company is an IOT / Computer Hardware company, the BD will likely need to be very technical. If the company is a social media or consumer company, the focus will probably have a strong consumer brand or media background. The Point is, there is not a one size fits all approach to sourcing the right business development manager. This is why partnering with a veteran sourcing firm like PeopleOps can make all the difference. Sometimes it is just as important to know who NOT to call.
If you are a hiring manager or recruiting leader tasks with hiring business developers, we would love to speak with you about teaming up. Everything we do is either billed on a flat hourly or monthly rate.
