New full-time position: Business Development Manager

Multilingual Connections is a translation and transcription agency in downtown Evanston that has been helping clients engage their multilingual markets and expand their global reach since 2005.  We’re a team of thirteen here in the office, and we work with hundreds of translators and transcriptionists around the world to support our legal, medical, academic, government, marketing, manufacturing, consumer products, non-profit and video production clients.

To support our growth, we’re looking for a great candidate to fill the role of Business Development Manager. As in all small companies, your responsibilities will vary from day to day, but in general this is where you’ll be focusing your efforts:

  • Managing and nurturing current client relationships to support existing business, uncover new opportunities and develop business with other new accounts
  • Responding to incoming client inquiries via phone and email and creating proposals accordingly
  • Researching new opportunities, generating new leads, establishing client relationships, identifying customer needs and working with our team to provide exceptional solutions

We’re looking someone in the Chicago area who has at least two years of experience in account management and/or business development within the professional services industry.  Our ideal candidate is creative, flexible, detail-oriented and driven, and someone who works autonomously yet is able to collaborate with our project management team and executive managers to achieve our company’s goals. Exception verbal, writing and computer skills are required, as well as an interest in working in an entrepreneurial environment.

If this sounds like a good fit, please email a resume and letter detailing why that is. You’d be surprised to know that many people send a resume and no letter at all – please don’t be one of them.

Thanks for your interest!
