Job Description
Touchstone is a Business Growth company. We are a small team of professional business development experts working together to help our clients win new business.

Our work is B2B and predominantly phone led. We all work from home, meeting up every morning on a Teams call and meeting face to face every few months in the Hemel Hempstead or Watford areas.

It is important to meet up regularly to maintain the culture of our business, share experiences and successes amongst the team so we can all continue to learn and grow.

We are looking for a bright, articulate person to join our team – sales experience is not essential but an understanding of business is important. We provide ongoing support to ensure your success; your success is our success, and, most importantly, will deliver successful outcomes for our clients.

We truly care about our team and are interested in them as people and not just as Business Development Managers.

Client sectors include research, technology, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, engineering, finance, education and facilities management. We are very proud of the work that we do and the calibre of clients who entrust their sensitive and important business development outreach to us.
