AFEX is a trusted global payment and risk management solutions specialist with a heritage that dates back to 1979. Offering a comprehensive range of global payment and foreign exchange services, including Wire Transfers and risk management tools, AFEX can handle every aspect of a client’s foreign payment needs, from risk consultation to transaction execution.
They are the fastest growing top-tier independent commercial global payment and risk management provider in the world, with continued growth across Europe, Asia and the Americas.
With values of Trust, Expertise, and Value, AFEX aim to become a trusted partner of the businesses they work with and to provide personalised strategic solutions which enhance their client’s businesses.
AFEX people are tenacious – they work hard to achieve their goals and hold themselves to high standards, but they’re not afraid to have some fun along the way.
They’re socially adaptable; just as comfortable speaking with a small business owner as they are dealing with the FD of a major company. They’re aspirational and ambitious, unafraid to ask questions and continuously looking to learn, with bags of entrepreneurial spirit – each BDE treats their desk like their own business, nurturing their leads through to success.
At AFEX, hard work is recognised and rewarded; there are regular team socials and there’s a friendly competition which extends beyond the daily workload with office squash and football teams.
AFEX are looking to add an additional team of Business Development Executives to the London office to support the ongoing growth of the business. You’ll work as a part of a team alongside a Client Manager to provide worldwide foreign currency exchange services and cross-border payments services to corporate clients. Reporting to the UK Sales Director, you will be responsible for your own sales as well as providing support to the Client Manager.
You will act as a Brand Ambassador for AFEX, acting in a way that promotes AFEX’s vision: A trusted business partner. All actions and interactions both internally and externally should underpin and uphold the AFEX core values:
Our aim is to build a long-term relationship, becoming your trusted partner. We earn trust by delivering on our commitments and putting the needs of our customers and colleagues first.
We strive to be the best in our field; through our dedication to continually learn and excel, we’ll deliver strategically adept solutions that work for you.
We constantly challenge ourselves to find the best ways to deliver value to our clients and each other, providing personalised services that enhance our customer’s business.
As a Business Development Executive (BDE), you’ll be using your research skills to seek out and connect with businesses who require Foreign Exchange services. You’ll use your excellent stakeholder management skills to build relationships and develop consultative solutions to the client’s FX needs. With challenging targets and a lively office environment, no two days are the same. You’ll have the freedom to find your own market niche, with ongoing support from your line manager to ensure that you’re on track to achieve your pipeline goals.
What we want from you
- A passion for sales
- Open to learning about something new or building on what you already know
- Strong work ethic – self-motivated and willing to go the extra mile
- Good rapport builder – persistent but not pushy, able to identify unique solutions and add value
- Trustworthy and honest – able to quickly build credibility
- Excellent attention to detail
- Confidence NOT arrogance
As a new team within business development, you’ll have ongoing support from your manager with bi-weekly pipeline reviews. You’ll gain hands-on experience through on-the-job training and shadowing existing team members to learn from some of the best in the business.
You’ll work with your manager to identify areas for development as you progress in the role, and will continuously strive to self-develop. There are daily market updates to keep you on top of the latest industry news, and you will have the opportunity to take part in internal lunch & learns to encourage cross-team learning.
We do not recruit based on your CV, we recruit based on your ability and competence. Our Academy process will see you attend an exciting, challenging and informative Audition Day where you will be able to showcase your talent. You will be assessed during tasks and in an interview before receiving full, detailed feedback allowing you to develop and learn. Job offers are made on the day to successful candidates.
What’s on offer to you:
- Very generous salary and commission structure
- Great perks and benefits, including discounted gym membership
- A wealth of knowledge on tap from industry experts
- Central London office with a brilliant atmosphere
- Support to develop your career and find your niche in the business
