This internship would be for a consulting company providing competitive and market intelligence in Central and Eastern Europe. The company joined forces and networks with 3 other experienced partners from the same industry but located outside CEE, and established Strategic Decision Support (SDS). Thus, SDS can now provide market and competitive intelligence solutions around the work. In order for SDS to grow, we now seek a commercial support - an internship trainee who can help us develop our business with big corporations around the world.
After some introductory training and some follow-up consultations with Partners, the primary role of the Business Development Trainee will be to prospect for new clients by networking, cold calling, direct mailing or other means of generating interest from potential clients. They must then plan persuasive approaches and pitches that will convince potential clients to do business with the company.

This requires a thorough knowledge of the market, the solutions/services the company can provide, and of the company’s competitors.
