Bovill Singapore is a key part of our global strategy. However, the office is small and therefore needs to leverage the resources of Bovill Hong Kong and the other global offices (London and New York). An ability to foster good working relationships with global colleagues is therefore critical.
You will also have responsibility for building the pipeline by generating new leads and leveraging existing relationships to maximise opportunities for up/cross-selling. Therefore, prior experience in consulting or business development is essential.
Given the technical nature of the work we do, exceptional written and oral communication skills, and high attention-to-detail are paramount.
