Business Development Manager at Nested
London, GB

Holborn, London EC1N 2ST, UK


Who we are
 
Nested is reinventing estate agency in the UK. The way we buy and sell homes is fundamentally broken, so we are revolutionising it by bringing transparency and honesty to the industry. We are a hugely ambitious team, backed by Europe’s leading VCs and led by an experienced founding team who have previously built successful businesses (GoCardless, Songkick).
 
Our unique ability to offer a cash advance to our clients is transforming the property industry. This coupled with our extraordinary team and a data-led approach truly sets us apart. We are continuously challenging ourselves to provide a better customer experience, improve our practices and re-write the estate agency process. 
 
Nested offers a collaborative, fast-paced working environment, perfect for those who want to make a big difference. We’re a close knit-team, with monthly socials, football and book clubs, and a catered lunch each Friday for our weekly all-hands. 
 
If you love your work and want to influence a game-changing product, then come and make your “nest” at Nested.

  • Acting as a trusted advisor - offering advice on how our customers can optimally present their property to the market. You will work with our Agency team to propose the marketing strategy achieving best price
  • Sharing your objective view of the saleability of customer properties with our Underwriting team, enabling them to confirm final figures and advance amount which you will then communicate to the customer
  • Regularly heading out of the office to meet with new customers and carrying out elementary visual inspections on their properties

  • Health insurance which includes gym discounts, health and dental care
  • Get some well-deserved rest with 27 days holiday + bank holidays

  • Healthy tech budget to make sure you’ve got your perfect work set-up
