Your role

Is ‘consultative selling’ the focal point of your strategies?

As a Business Developer at Campus Gent, you advise (potential) clients about suitable digital solutions for complex issues concerning platforms, e-commerce, marketing, design and system integration.

You like to bring the right experts together. And you regularly work with Strategists, Consultants and Software Architects to pitch convincing proposals to companies. In the end you are the one who takes the lead to explain the solution to clients and of course to close the partnership. How you do that is up to you. Thanks to the experienced commercial team of Campus Gent and the other campuses of iO, there is always someone to talk to about pitches, market approaches and plans.

As a Business Developer at Campus Gent, you will join a commercial team that always puts the customer’s interests first. But you will also be at the heart of the company when it comes to communicating with project teams and other campuses. And although sales is your domain, sales and marketing regularly work together on market approaches and new business development. Moreover, everyone feels the positive vibe of the enormous growth of iO. This makes working at iO challenging and it also provides many new opportunities.

And there are also plenty of opportunities for your personal development. At iO, knowledge is the foundation of everything you do. There is plenty of room to develop your skills. You can grow as a professional and you can completely shape your personal growth the way you want to, with the help of a personal training budget.

  • You can easily spot opportunities in the market and at companies;

  • You are an expert level persuader and your presentation skills match that;

  • Because at iO, you will be working in an international environment, you must speak Dutch and English fluently.

This is what you get from us

You’re giving us your time, dedication and your talent. And we’re very grateful for it. But what do you get in return? Here’s what to expect.

  • Challenging projects

    Dive into projects that really challenge you. Are you missing specific knowledge or skills? There’s always a colleague around who’s happy to help you out.

  • A lot of satisfaction

    With more than 1500 colleagues, you’ll be surrounded by the expertise you need to ace every project and get a lot of satisfaction from your job. At the same time, your campus feels small, cozy and homely.

  • Digitally diverse

    Everyone on your team brings new perspectives, interesting insights and valuable skills to the table. This way you’re part of something much bigger than just your own skill set.

  • Tools and training

    At iO you continue to grow and learn. Training sessions on campus will help you develop skills you’d never even thought of. And with a personal training budget, you can fully develop your true potential.

  • Lunch and snacks

    A tasty lunch, prepared with care? Admit it: you’d come to the office for less. Add to that weekly fruit baskets and fresh ice cream when the weather calls for it and it’ll be hard to keep you away, won’t it?

  • An ambitious party committee

    Signed your contract? Then you’ve also signed up for Halloween dress-up parties, barbeques during 30-degree weather and our legendary Christmas party (totally optional of course!)

  • A healthy work environment

    Your physical and mental well-being matters to you – and to us just as much. Count on interesting workshops, (online) sports events on campus and a shoulder to cry on when you need it.

  • Extra facilities

    A little help goes a long way. On many of our campuses, you’ll enjoy extra facilities, so you can focus on more important matters.
