Business Development

Focus on growth

As Headhunter for Business Development, Top of Minds Executive Search recruits strategic professionals who help companies grow. The Business Development Managers we place realise growth through the development of go-to-market strategies, launching new product-market combinations or catalysing companywide transformations.

Many of our Business Development Managers have a background in consultancy and have been trained by strategy consulting firms such as McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Roland Berger, Strategy&, OC&C, Accenture, Deloitte and PwC.

Comparable positions in the same category are Commercial Excellence Manager, Corporate Development Manager or Commercial Development Manager.

We place Business Development Managers both at renowned corporate players and lesser-known niche players.

Storytelling: the growth story

Business Development Professionals especially can be recruited with a good story. They are intrinsically driven by achieving growth. And an ambition for growth always provides a solid story and is therefore an excellent opportunity to strengthen your employer brand in the broadest sense of the word.

During many of our recruitment campaigns for Business Development positions, our clients benefit from a noticeable increase in the number of potential candidates. The generic nature of Business Development vacancies allows us to appeal to a broad target group and the strong focus on growth results in a strong positive image for the employer.

Our headhunting process

Our 3 steps towards result
  • 1. Storylining

    Great stories attract great people. Based on an extensive intake with the hiring manager and other stakeholders, we determine the essence of the recruitment message.

  • 2. Pitching

    Attractive content is the key factor in shaping the essence of the message. Our extensive network of top professionals in the Netherlands ensures that everyone relevant will know about your story.

  • 3. Selection

    Once an exhaustive longlist of interested candidates has been drawn up, we narrow it down to a shortlist with the most suited candidates. We do this by means of an objective scorecard and by conducting in-depth interviews. The top three is then taken through several selection rounds within your organisation, after which we facilitate the contract negotiations with the number one candidate.
