Business Development Executive (corporate)

Role and Responsibilities

This is a great opportunity for a smart, ambitious and dynamic individual to join an exciting technology and data start-up that is developing a new market and growing rapidly despite these turbulent times. At the forefront of the burgeoning alternative data industry, Fable Data is shaping the future of data for investors, corporates and governments.  


As one of the earliest team members of the Corporate sector team, the role will be instrumental in growing the Corporate business unit, directly supporting the Director of Corporate Products & Strategy in delivering some of the key strategic goals for the business. This is a great chance to realise your potential, help shape a new team and build a world-class client portfolio.  


The role would suit an individual with 1-4 years’ experience in a top-tier consultancy, agency or professional services firm; someone with a good business grounding and solid core skills, including strong commercial acumen and good stakeholder management - but who doesn’t see their future in a big firm. 


You’ll be working in a fast-paced, ambitious environment, with the ability to learn from experts in technology, commercial strategy and the investment market. We have a culture of continuous improvement, where everyone is empowered to take responsibility for actions. This is a place where you'll be able to use and develop your skills and knowledge within an innovative and collaborative team. 


Our office is based in North Central London, but the role can be performed remotely until we are able to return to our office.

  • Preferably educated to degree level (or equivalent) 

Skills / knowledge:
