BREAKING NEWS….our News UK team are looking for a Business Development Manager to help further develop the HND (Home News Delivery) business in the South West.
Working very closely with Retailers and Roundsmen to establish and grow a ‘Known Customer’ base and to increase sales of The Sun – the UK’s #1 Daily Newspaper, The Times – the UK’s #1 Quality Newspaper, and the Sunday Times, you will be field based working across the South West region.
Day to day you will liaise with key contacts such as high volume Roundsmen and Retailers to identify opportunities for growth whilst developing strategies and joint business plans. You must have a fantastic track record of establishing, maintaining, and developing relationships with key contacts within a sales focussed role previously. You will also be a natural planner and have experience of managing your own diary/booking appointments.
What’s in it for you?
We recognise that people are the key to our success. That’s why we make sure everyone at McCurrach enjoys continuous support, career development opportunities and great perks, including:
- Performance-related bonus (up to 10% of base)

So, if you are passionate about the latest headlines and trends, want to have fun and recognise success only comes through hard work, then this is the next role for you!
A full, manual driving licence (with no more than 6 points and no previous bans/endorsements).
As this is a field-based role, you must be comfortable with regular travel on a daily basis over considerable distances (in line with your call file). Overnights may also be required on occasion.
You ideally will have a working knowledge and understanding of the News trade, including Convenience Retail, HND and Roundsmen. To be successful you must have a solid track record of delivering sales performance within a previous role. Building and developing customer relationships in order to retain business/enable growth will come naturally to you.
