Brand Development Manager, Brand Extension/Licensing  (Full Time / permanent)

Cambridge or London, UK

 

Stobbs are partnering with leading licensing agency, LMCA (https://www.lmca.net/) and are looking to hire a brand development expert into our licensing team. Ideally you will have a few years’ experience in deal-making and love searching out new business opportunities.

We have a great working environment and a very friendly and rapidly growing team of 180+ people, mostly working in our offices in London and Cambridge.

The majority of the role will involve:

  • Researching relevant industry categories and identifying appropriate potential partners (licensees) for our clients, who will typically be global brand owners
  • Creating compelling sales materials and approaching potential partners
  • Negotiating and closing license agreements, supported by the MD, Europe, and working with agency and client teams where appropriate
  • Managing ongoing relationships with licensees, monitoring performance, and providing regular progress updates to our clients

 

You would also be:

  • Contributing to all company activities, for example the identification of new clients, creating presentations and involvement in industry events
  • Collaborating closely with other members of the wider team as and when needed

 

We are hoping that you will be:

  • Great at building relationships and a good team player
  • Experienced in trademark licensing sales. If you’re not but have experience in other B2B sales or other relevant sales/dealmaking functions, we’re happy to hear from you too.
  • Self-motivated and tenacious in searching out the right partners for our clients
  • A strategic thinker with strong presentation skills

 

If you have previously worked with corporate brands, have international experience and/or you speak other European languages that would be advantageous, but it’s not a deal breaker.

 

Salary:    The salary will be a base amount plus commission.

Benefits:  Competitive package including private healthcare and life assurance

Location: Your base will be either our Cambridge or London office, and we offer hybrid/flexible working.

 

Before you apply, we would be very happy to have a chat and answer any questions, including discussing salary expectations, as we have some flexibility on the job level, dependent upon experience. Please contact Esther using the email address below.

Closing date for applications is Wednesday 1st June.

Please send your application to esther.jolley@iamstobbs.com
