Based in Dubai, an exciting international role has arisen for an experienced Client Development Manager at an ambitious and ever-growing global law firm.

The firm's client development programme was started in 2013, and has been successfully received both internally and by clients. Following this success, the program has grown substantially in scope and ambition, and is now being broadened out across additional sectors, practice areas and regions. This role ties into that growth and encompasses all aspects of client development, for example strategy and research; leading pitches and internal and external team meetings; developing marketing and business development activity that ties into the clients' needs; monitoring KPIs and reporting regularly back to the board and partnership on progress. The Client Development Manager will support a range of business lines and practice areas required to manage a global key account and will enjoy a high degree of involvement with the partners, associates and assigned clients. The successful applicant will be expected to work in a way that creates a sustained and pervasive focus on their assigned clients throughout the firm, thus leading to a change in the service that the client receives, and resulting higher revenue for the firm.

The chosen candidate will be a bright graduate or equivalent with a background in client development within a fast-paced professional services environment, preferably within an international legal firm. Marketing communications experience with extensive copy writing skills and a good understanding of branding and design and the production of promotional materials with experience of working closely with a design team are also essential. Positive and tenacious with the ability to pro-actively drive initiatives forward and motivate resources within and outside their team to perform, the Client Development Manager will also be an effective team-player with strong interpersonal skills including confidence, positivity, diplomacy and the ability to gain credibility quickly.
