Responsibilities

In the interest of keeping Delphi Tech up to date, growing steadily, and poised to take whatever opportunities may arise, you will perform a wide array of tasks. We analyzed a number of online job postings to identify these primary duties and responsibilities. 

Maintain Business Relationships 

In every organization, no matter the industry, strong and long-lasting relationships with clients are absolutely essential. For this reason, one of the most important tasks for Business Development Analysts is that of maintaining and developing client relationships. There are many ways they can go about doing this, from making phone calls to flying across several states for a face-to-face meeting. 

Conduct Research 

A significant portion of a Business Development Analyst’s time will be spent conducting research on market insights, business opportunities, industry trends,  competing organizations, customer demographics, new technologies, and more. This must be done on a regular basis in order to stay caught up on recent information.

Interpret Data 

Once a Business Development Analyst has conducted the necessary amount of research, it’s not enough to simply report the findings of that research. Instead,  they must use their experience and skills to figure out what their findings could mean for the company as a whole. This means determining whether or not their findings could apply to their own company, identifying the specific areas of their company that would be affected, and predicting both the positive and negative results of any possible changes. 

Keep Records 

The Business Development Analyst must track and record metrics, data, and statistics on company performance, connections, client retention, customer retention, and finances on a regular basis. In addition to providing detailed records for the company’s long-term use, this practice also allows the Business  Development Analyst to recommend ways to improve existing procedures. 

Qualifications

  • Post-secondary education in Business or Marketing or Information Technology would be an asset 
  • 1-2 years experience working on a Marketing or Business development team for a  High Technology or software company, preferably B2B based is considered an asset
  • Interest and understanding of the Aviation & Aerospace industry or Passion for the aviation  industry 
  • Ability to champion new ideas and develop creative approaches
  • Must have the hustle and drive to take initiative and make things happen!
  • Microsoft Office proficiency.
