A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced BD professional to join a large global law firm as a Business Development Manager within a growing and energetic firm-wide marketing team of professionals.

The role holder will support the global IP, Tech & Data Group within Reed Smith's Litigation Department to drive its business development and marketing efforts in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The Business Development Manager will work with the practice group management and key partners on strategic local and global marketing initiatives, which will involve identifying, formulating and implementing business development and marketing strategies. This is a hands-on role and will involve taking ownership of the development of key credentials and leading on client pitch opportunities. Communication will also be key in this role as the Business Development Manager will lead engagement and implementation efforts for strategic BD priorities and find effective ways to raise the profile of practice group internally and externally with the support of the Communications team. The successful candidate will work largely autonomously in terms of the day-to-day business of IP, Tech & Data marketing and business development but also will work closely and collaboratively with the IP, Tech & Data business development team based in the United States.

The ideal candidate will be a graduate or equivalent with previous experience in a marketing or BD position in a legal environment involving extensive interaction with partners. This is a high profile role and the firm is looking for someone who has the gravitas and expertise to drive growth, influence and motivate partners and successfully assist in building client relationships and brand. The Business Development Manager will be a confident and effective communicator, with the ability to offer ideas at practice meetings and draft clear and accurate copy.
