The role:

The Business Development representative is responsible for acquiring new customers by identifying opportunities and building long-term relationships with prospects in order to manage a pipeline that is consistent with sales targets. Green Gorilla business developers have strong communication skills in order to interact, present, assert and speak to all the different stakeholders which are involved.

A clean New Zealand driving license is necessary. You have challenged yourself and grown in your field, building client rapport quickly and efficiently and are constantly looking to improve your communication style.

You demonstrate interest in the people around you and your ability to influence others comes from your high level of empathy.
