Why is our Business Development Manager the next step for you?
The eCommerce division is booming. With significant revenue increases year on year, the business is the engine room of our global strategy. As experts in what we do, we operate across verticals that represent the most exciting opportunities for global eCommerce growth – Digital Content, Global Retail, Airlines, Regulated Gambling and Travel – and in doing so we are privileged to partner with many of the world’s most dynamic organisations. Our strategic aim is to drive differentiated value for our customers by increasing their profitability and hence Worldpay’s share of wallet. To achieve this we aim to reach more customers in more markets, in local language and with local payment options.
How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?
You will be targeting new corporate clients in Japan. You will build up new relationships from scratch, using a portfolio of target clients and attracting new ones. These new clients might be found from supplied leads or already known within your existing network.

Therefore the sales processes can be complex at times with long sales cycles.
What will make you the ideal candidate?

You will also need to be highly flexible in your approach and be independent to drive your performance to achieve stretching targets. We would love for you to have a background or passion in the digital content industry as well as the ambition to dive into the payments industry.
Besides strong analytical skills and methodological way of working, you will have excellent communicative skills (concise and direct) and experience in identifying and influencing key decision makers and stakeholders. You have an ability to deliver value and not sell on price, be a strong negotiator, strategic sales trained and have the gravitas to operate at the ground and move up to engage at the C suite. With passion and energy you will thrive in the positive environment at Worldpay and be handsomely rewarded for your achievements.
