The Walk is a busy, Melbourne-based integrated marketing agency working with international, multinational and Australian clients with a single purpose; to create brilliant marketing that gets results.

Every day we use innovative thinking, digital tools, systems, data – and even pens and paper – to devise intelligent marketing strategies and execute these efficiently and effectively in markets from ANZ to APAC and the US. With our small but versatile team, we’re perfectly placed to deliver the agility that so many bigger agencies can’t achieve, without sacrificing what our clients rely on; strategic expertise, creativity or the ability to execute.

We pride ourselves on working closely with clients, collaborating seamlessly, delivering pragmatic clear thinking, and becoming a trusted extension of their team. Finding, engaging and growing these clients is where you’ll shine.

Can you tell that we love what we do? It’s important that you do too.

Is this you?

We’re looking for an experienced Business Development Manager with a proven track-record in growing an agency. You’ll be a confident and experienced professional who approaches sales and relationship building with honesty and transparency, putting the agency’s best foot forward to win new business. You’ll be responsible for sourcing and securing new business development opportunities, increasing revenue and pursuing new leads in the marketplace, as well as protecting existing margins by retaining and growing existing accounts.

To best represent our agency, you’ll know marketing inside and out, and ideally come with experience in B2B marketing, channel marketing and lead generation.

Upholding the business principles and standards in a credible manner at all times, you’ll constantly enhance the agency’s reputation. Your enthusiasm, dedication and ultimately, your successes will have a positive impact on  business productivity and internal team morale.

You’ll benefit from working with an experienced team of interesting and capable individuals in a supportive and fun environment. You will enjoy variety in spades and the chance to grow your career in new directions. We pride ourselves on supporting career development and personal growth so that you can become the best person you can be. You will be a valued part of the leadership team at The Walk, contributing to business strategies and resourcing decisions needed to support and grow the business.
