We are looking for a Business Development Manager focused on providing the right solution for our clients.

Working as part of an established sales team, you will be central to our high growth strategy, generating new business and increasing our presence and foothold within the arts and cultural community.

With this in mind, a Start-Up or Scale-Up background will be advantageous.

The Company

Based in the United Kingdom, and established more than 30 years ago, Artifax Software is a dynamic, industry-leading cloud software company, developing, supporting, and delivering solutions and services for venue and event management. Proudly working primarily with organisations in the arts and cultural sector, Artifax supports household names globally including theatres, concert halls, arts centres, festivals, museums, galleries, visitor attractions and places of worship.

We are innovative and entrepreneurial, always looking for new ways to improve our software and services.

Supporting over 400 clients worldwide, we are part of Volaris Group, a global family of more than 450 software companies, owned by a publicly traded multi-billion-dollar organisation. This allows us to benefit from a wide network of specialist knowledge, resource, and expertise.

With significant growth plans in the UK and globally, this is a fantastic time to join the team.

Job Description:

As BDM, you will be primarily focused on generating new business by demonstrating the value that Artifax’s products and services can bring to prospective clients.

You will identify new leads and commercial opportunities through various sources, managing prospective clients and nurturing deals through to acceptance of quote and close, then providing a handover to the rest of the business and after-sales support.

The role requires a willingness to strive to consistently search for and close new business, and to meet and exceed pre-specified sales targets and sales activity KPI’s.

The role includes conducting demonstrations of Artifax’s products to prospects and clients, remotely online, or at their premises. You will work with colleagues, partners, prospects, and clients from C-Level to operations.
