Head of Sales & Strategy – Player/Coach

Seed-Funded Startup – 6m Investment

The Company:

Delivery of goods for small retailers has always been a massive challenge purely because they don’t have the infrastructure and personnel in place to manage logistics, negotiate rates with leading delivery providers and manage delivery operations. I’ve partnered with a game-changing seed-funded startup that is redefining the way small businesses manage local deliveries. Through their integrated platform, they can offer various delivery options, streamline delivery processes, and gain control and flexibility to boost revenues and customer loyalty for small retailers.

They offer:

· Various delivery options e.g same day, next day or scheduled.

· Affordable delivery rates without volume commitments or complicated terms.

· Reliable service 24/7 – access network of local, vetted delivery partners 7 days a week.

· Easy-to-use platform to manage delivery logistical operations.

The startup has been built by former Via and Optibus (unicorn startups) executives. They have received a nice chunk of seed investment – 6m to date from leading investors.

To date, they have signed up 300+ local merchants across the UK, Impressive given they have launched 6 months ago.

The Role:

Please note this is a hands-on role at an early-stage startup where you will be involved in various aspects of the revenue function from new business to partnerships to leadership and strategy.

· Drive forward new business with small retailers across the UK.

· Develop strategic partnerships to boost indirect revenue channels.

· Strategise with the CEO/Co Founder to position product to market and implement GTM


· Lead a small team of BDM’s with the view in the next year to grow into a pure leadership role.

About you:

· 4-5+ years in business development and/or Strategic Partnerships

· Previous experience at a Seed funded to series B startup – not essential but desired.

· Excited by and thrive working in an early-stage startup.
