London and the South East has been identified as a huge business development opportunity for the business. With successful relationships already forged in this region, there is a fantastic opportunity to harness the power of this reputation and develop the business still further. As a the Regional Business Development Manager for London and the South East, you'll be taking on an exciting challenge, but one that will carve a formidable career path should you succeed in building upon the strong foundations already laid.
