Job description: Business Development Modeler

As VTTI continues to grow, their new Business Development Modeler (BDM) will make sure they continue to work as efficiently and as data-driven as possible.

This role is ideal for someone with a high-growth oriented mindset. That’s because VTTI will keep expanding and needs someone with considerable financial and analytical acumen to analyze new opportunities in this fast-moving sector.

Assessing potential assets is an essential part of the role. They will value sales propositions for acquisition at the right price. In addition, the BDM will apply sound models and analysis to help identify other, perhaps undervalued, or potential opportunities, in the market.

“Models are only as good as the questions they ask. Experience and confidence drive efficiency – and the BDM will have these vital qualities.” – Federico Petersen, the Global Head of Business Development of VTTI

Inside the role of Business Development Modeler
The Business Development Modeler will report to Federico Petersen, the Global Head of Business Development. They will also work with regional Business Developers to ensure that risk, value, and opportunities are clearly and easily identified in various markets.

This role will maintain and develop complex financial models for budgeting and reporting processes and identify long-term strategic opportunities. It’s a complex role, often dealing in ambiguity, and requires the BDM to work assertively and deliver results, sometimes with limited information. They will also liaise with investors, commercial teams, finance, treasury and tax professionals, and must be able to communicate and work with professionals all levels.

In addition, the BDM will work on various projects at the same time in different regions. For example, converting a terminal in South Africa or assisting on the transaction of a big project in Chile, where they work closely with other VTTI teams to prepare financial models.

VTTI: a growing organization with a unique approach
Work-life balance at VTTI is taken seriously. When a deadline looms, it’s all hands on deck and employees are expected to deliver, within reasonable boundaries. It’s a culture that requires a sharp focus and an adaptable mindset.

“At VTTI we don’t sit around waiting to be told what to do. We are always working on how we can improve things and take ownership. A pro-active mindset and flexibility are key factors for success within our organization.” – Anneke Otterspeer HR Manager of VTTI

The Business Development team has ten people working in offices worldwide, including Singapore, Cape Town, the US and within the EU. A key characteristic of VTTI’s people is that they’re self-starters, with an entrepreneurial outlook and confidence to push forward in their respective roles.

This challenging role is ideal for someone with least five years’ related experience and who wants to move into Business Development in the future. This role offers a fantastic opportunity to move forward and move up in their career.
