Shuttlecock INC. Business Development Manager
We’re on the lookout for an absolute boss of a business development manager. Someone who will add tenacity, drive and business smarts to the creativity, energy and leftfield thinking that make Shuttlecock Inc. so unique. You’ll be responsible for getting our name out there as the goto creative production company for forward-thinking brands looking to do something bold, exciting and immersive. You will take a proactive approach to seeking out new opportunities, identifying potential partners and introducing them to the next level experiential awesomeness that we already deliver on the regular for the likes of Glossier, Grey Goose, Wagamama, Tabasco, Mr & Mrs Smith and Visit California.
We’re an independent creative production company founded on the belief that with a little bit of humour and imagination, you can bring even the dullest brief to life. We’re good at lots of things but what we really excel at are top-notch food and drink, jaw-dropping theatrical sets, irreverent immersive theatre and creative soundscapes. Put those four elements together and you can do extraordinary things.
Our ambition is to become the number one creative production in London, working with the biggest names in the industry both here and overseas on the most exciting, bonkers and out there briefs going. Elton John's next birthday party? You've got it... The Avatar II after party? See you there... If that doesn't sound like something you'd want to be a part of then there's no hope for you, sorry. You're a lost cause. If, on the other hand, you're already working out how to spell s-h-u-t-t-l-e-c-o-c-k over the phone without cracking up then we'd love to hear from you.
