Marketing and Business Development team

Saff  Marketing and Business Development team

We love ideas and our clients!

We’re the brand makers, the event organisers, the social media crew and content producers.

We’re here to represent the client and see things from their perspective, we want to help solve their issues, provide insight, develop relationships and demonstrate how the firm adds value.

What makes our work enjoyable is pushing boundaries, coming up with new ideas which strike a chord and makes us stand out.

We have three core groups in the team:

  1. Brand and communications – responsible for digital marketing, design, brand and internal and external communication

  2. Markets – responsible for how we go to market via industry sectors and geographic markets which includes events, sponsorship, business development, corporate hospitality and proposals

  3. Services and strategic projects – responsible for promoting key services, client communication and helping to deliver the firm’s business plan

We tend to get involved in most things across the firm as a lot of our role is about communication. This makes it varied and broad. We promote the firm to our clients, prospects, referrers and candidates. We ensure that we are in regular communication with our clients; we help to improve internal communication and engagement and we help the firm to grow by generating new enquiries.

Our team is spread across our eight offices, so we get together at least once a quarter for some training or a social event. We have a virtual team meeting every Tuesday to hear what everyone is working on and catch-up on any news, then on a Thursday it’s an online session to brainstorm, update the team on a campaign or we have a guest speaker slot. We do hybrid working as well as having hubs in some of the offices where we try to come in at least once/twice a week to work together.

We do a fairly regular ‘walk and talk’ at Haldon Forest as well as team days, recent examples include anything from guest speakers to multi-activity socials including archery and quad biking.

In our team everyone is asked their opinion. Everyone is thanked and acknowledged. Anyone can come up with an idea or be asked to take a lead role in a project. Everyone contributes to the team.

Most important is your personality and who you are. Good communication skills are essential and your ability to juggle lots of different tasks. Then your experience of business development and marketing which can be in any industry sector.
That we all get on and support each other. We’ve got lots of different skills and levels of experience and everyone has something to offer. It’s great too that if you have a good idea you can run with it and bring in other team members to help, so you can see it through from start to finish.

Getting out of bed and coming to work will be easy – you will enjoy it here. The team is great, we have fun together and we support one another, and every day is different.
We have access to Target training to gain our digital marketing CIM certificate. As members of the PM Forum we also attend online and physical events and conferences.

We also learn loads from each other and share knowledge – team members will often give presentations or run workshops on social media, PR, campaigns and design.

In the last couple of years team members have been promoted. Opportunities are actively sought and found to give you to best chance to shine and develop your skills. We’ve had someone grow into a new brand role and our designer is doing a secondment with a local creative agency.
