About Recast

About You

Reporting to the Commercial Director, the Business Development Representative will be responsible for generating rights holder leads on Recast’s next gen content monetisation platform.

The appropriate individual will be responsible for utilising existing and new relationships to build a target list and work with Recast’s Commercial Director to educate the market and close rights holder partners (Sports Teams, Leagues, and Athletes). The ideal candidate will possess the ability to approach sports organisations and open doors to key decision makers.

You’ll be an organised communicator, with acute people skills who thinks on your feet and adapts to any given situation. You must be comfortable working in a start-up environment and entrepreneurial minded in the sense that you’ll be tasked with building a book of business and supporting the Commercial Director of Recast to move conversations from lead to close. On top of that, you’re expected to be able to delegate across various sectors of the business that are needed to support the commercial success of our partners.

  • Business Development Executive (Sport)
  • Location: Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom
