There has been a recent increase in demand for BD specialists at an executive/advisor level over on the east coast of Australia – Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. We are currently working on four roles, all at successful, leading Australian professional services firms; and all with an attractive level of autonomy and a national remit. Whilst one role is tender focused, the other three focus on practice and sector BD as well as client relationship management. Most of these positions are in the legal sector. This recent trend ties in to reporting in the legal press about the growth and challenge from national firms in the market in response to the mergers and globalisation of other firms.
So far in 2013, Sydney has delivered quite a lot of opportunity for BD specialists in law and even Brisbane has been relatively busy this year. However, up until now the Melbourne market had been pretty quiet so to see such a high quality BD Advisor role open up is very exciting.

Keeping your Recruiter updated
One of the best things that you can do as a candidate is share as much information as you can about your career search with your recruiter, this includes all applications you have made directly or through other recruiters. This is very important especially when you are at the stage of interviewing as, with your permission, we can keep each firm updated on your progress -giving firms the opportunity to speed up the interview process if need be. At Seldon Gill we aim to be supportive and are focused on developing a long-term relationship with you; wanting to give you the right advice for your career rather than achieving a ‘quick win’ for our business. And so sharing this information with us also means that we can give you the very best advice along the way!
