Business Development Manager

Why are we here?

We’re building a different type of newsroom, for a slower, wiser news. Now more than ever it’s important to have calm, clear journalism you can trust. We’re not chasing breaking news, but revealing what’s driving it. Built to cover stories not as they happen, but when they’re ready. Where everyone has a seat at the table. Tortoise sets out to bring people together to try and make sense of the world. We’re here to build journalism that lasts. 

At Tortoise, we work with partners to build bespoke products and communications solutions built on Tortoise’s code of journalistic values of organised listening, independence and openness.

We are building membership-driven content, events and market intelligence business for C-suite executives and industry professionals. Our Responsible Business Forums attract some of the highest profile CEOs who run the world’s most influential organisations. Supported by world-class industry research, our members pay to access peer-to-peer discussion forums, networking dinners, roundtables and newsletters. We are quickly building a reputation for providing distinctive and influential events and content that attract extremely high calibre members. In addition, our B2C offering drives a scale through our audio content and a smaller but highly desirable audience through our newsletter content.

What’s my personal contribution?

Your role will be to monetise the reach of our products and our audiences with external brands and partners. Success will be defined by your ability to build on existing revenue streams which deliver substantial year on year growth, and develop new revenue streams through sponsorship opportunities.

Day-to-day your role will be varied, ranging from front-line business development to working closely with our Editors and Founders to identify strategic growth opportunities. As a member of the Partnerships team you are principally charged with revenue growth. You will be working within a group which is extremely collaborative, hands-on and measured as a team effort.

What are my responsibilities & accountabilities?

What do I know? Useful knowledge, skills and experience.

What do I show? Essential behaviours.
