Business Development – Research

Cobalt has an excellent team of consultants that recruit into the Research and Strategy sector. Since we opened in London over a decade ago, we have partnered with some of the best companies across the globe, from leading fund managers to data and insights firms. We source the top talent for our clients and we have great relationships with all the companies we work with. From entry level sales associates to highly qualified senior business development professionals, Cobalt offers specialist guidance for all levels of experience.

Are you looking for a business development role?
We recruit business development professionals into Proptech firms, as well as real estate data and insight companies, such as MSCI, Oxford Economics and Co-Star. We also put research professionals in contact with Fund Managers for positions within product solutions, investor relations and capital raising teams. Proptech firms seek candidates with prior sales experience (not necessarily within the real estate industry), whereas data and insight companies seek candidates who have had experience within a similar position, for example with a competitor, as the product understanding is niche and key. Generally speaking, Business Development roles within the Real Estate industry will require well-presented and confident candidates who have a strong knowledge of the market in which they will be operating.

Business Development positions allow lots of room for career growth, with professionals often going onto become business development managers, senior business development managers with the potential to eventually become the head of a business development or sales team, having gained a strong understanding of the industry and client base.

Are you hiring?
Cobalt can assist you with your search for a top-quality business development professional. We have an effective service, offering support at every step as we help put your recruitment plan into action. Our skilled consultants have the ability to determine the best candidates for any role. We implement a range of recruitment strategies, depending on the nature of the role, and we look for the key skills needed to thrive in the role.
