What is Flagstone?

Flagstone is many things. An online savings platform, reinventing how individuals, businesses, and charities manage, protect, and grow their cash. A diverse group of people, bound by a collaborative spirit, and shared purpose. And lastly, a thriving, profitable business – where smart people do their best work.

Each definition shares a common thread: our unique culture. It’s our pride and joy. And our competitive advantage.

A feel for our culture

To revolutionise the savings market, we need to be at our best. But high performance takes more than talent – it takes a culture of kindness, respect, and growth.

That’s why we’re building a diverse, inclusive community, where your voice is heard and valued. Where, with close support and room to develop, you can surpass even your own expectations. And be rewarded for it.

We may not change the world, but we can change the world of financial technology. And all it takes is a winning mix of drive, talent, and empathy. Our culture celebrates all three.

But enough about us. Let’s talk about you.

Does this sound like you?

You're a dynamic and strategic thinking Business Development Manager, ideally with 3+ years experience, who's excited to forge a new way to save.

What you’ll do:

As a Business Development Manager in our Sales team, you will have a wide range of responsibilities to support the business by managing relationships with our partners, driving new business opportunities, and providing support to advisors and clients that are interested in the Flagstone platform. You will be responsible for the Sales development of your own pipeline, nurturing relationships and building trusted partnerships with clients and advisors. Your activity will contribute directly to the company’s growth so we encourage your thoughts on what we can do better and how we can continually drive the client experience forward.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Providing a successful first point of contact communication for prospective Flagstone customers and advisor enquiries which drives lead generation
  • Participating in key business development processes including lead generation, lead follow up and conversions
  • Delivering effective inbound and outbound operations, cross-selling and up-selling campaigns to enhance revenues
  • Creating and delivering compelling client demonstrations (including presentations, sales pitches, webinars, and proposals) and completing key follow up activity
  • Working closely with our Marketing, CRM, Client Services, Banks, and Product teams
  • Developing and maintaining excellent customer and stakeholder relationships
  • Delivering an effective and high quality sales experience

What you’ll bring:

  • Previous experience in business development, account management and sales
  • A proven track record of achieving ambitious sales targets and ensuring best-in-class service quality
  • Knowledge and understanding of delivering high quality KPIs
  • Experience of collaborating closely with cross functional teams such as marketing, CRM, customer support and technology
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Resilient and can work in a fast-paced and agile environment, within time constraints and with multiple priorities
  • Obsessed with customer experience
  • Excellent organisational and multi-tasking abilities
  • Results focused and tenacious in pursuing targets
  • Proactive and responsive – moving quickly to take advantage of opportunities
  • Great attention to detail
  • Positive mindset, solution oriented with a ‘can-do’ attitude
  • Experience in a fast growing or scale up business would be an advantage but not essential

How we reward you:

At Flagstone, the benefits extend beyond false gifts like “fruit and snacks”. Instead, we invest in your health, wealth, and professional development. Here’s a selection of our benefits:

  • Private healthcare
  • Life insurance (four times your annual salary)
  • Dental/optical care
  • Matched pension contributions (5%)
  • Income protection
  • Around the World in 90 days (remote working)
  • £1,000 annual learning bursary
  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • Remote working kit
  • Employee share scheme
  • Additional 3 days community and charity leave each year
  • Quarterly half days for Wellness leave

All are welcome.

At Flagstone, we’re assembling a diverse team that defies our industry’s norms. Think this role could suit you? We encourage you to apply, no matter your background.
