To Do?

Working Here


Below are our main operating areas where you can get a general feel for what we do. If you don’t see a perfect fit, that’s ok. Sometimes we find talent in unexpected places so don’t be dismayed. If you are just itching to get into our kind of advertising, creative, branding, media or business development, we’d love to hear from you.




Business Development


Apply Now

Bayard Advertising is looking to add a few brave, talented people to join our sales team! We are looking for IND and ORD-types. But if you can make the case for why we should hire you and you live in SMV or even IBZ, we’ll listen.

Bayard provides our clients with strategy, ideas, creativity and metrics around their Talent Acquisition efforts. We are a Recruitment Advertising and Marketing firm.

We’re looking for seasoned sales professionals who can hit the ground running. You'll need to have an extensive network of Talent Acquisition contacts who will take your call to be successful here.

This is a Business Development job- it’s not account managing, it’s account hunting. If you cannot generate new meetings and appointments on your own via networking etc., you’re going to be unhappy here.

We are looking for a sole contributor- this is not a management role.

After you go through your existing contacts, you’ll need to be able to make the case to people who don’t know you that they need to see you. That’s the tough part. Our biggest challenge is getting that first meeting- after that we do well.

You should know who the technology players are in the space, who our competitors are, and you should be able to tap into your existing network to line up appointments and pitches. People who do well here are creative thinkers. You like coming up with solutions to client issues, and you can even hear when a client has a problem they are not aware of yet.

Bayard supports every client with insightful teams of professionals. Headquartered in New York City, we have 12 offices throughout the United States. We’ve been in business for over 90 years, in a row.

As Director/VP New Business Development you would

  • Prospect and pitch mid-sized, and Fortune 1000 accounts by building relationships with Senior HR and Talent Acquisition professionals (CHRO/SVP/VP/DIR)

  • Be a credible subject matter expert regarding trends in recruitment advertising (all the cool new stuff, digital, social, mobile, search media)

  • Formulate and answer requests for proposals (RFPs); liaise with RFP team

  • Research new client prospects and their competitors thoroughly

  • Develop market business plan to achieve goal annually

  • Manage pipeline; responsible for weekly/monthly reporting

  • Maintain a working knowledge of our current product and service offerings

  • Maintain expertise of industry and competitors; continually gather competitive intelligence

  • Attend networking conferences regularly


Requirements

  • Experience in outside consultative sales in advertising, staffing, HR Technology, or related field

  • You have 5+ years of direct Human Capital industry experience. If you don't, this isn’t the right gig for you

  • Be able to tell a good joke

  • Think creatively. Heck, maybe even actually be creative. People who do well here paint, dance, write, cook, etc.

  • Asymmetrical thinking encouraged

  • Strong needs analysis, interpersonal and listening skills

  • Knowledge of online recruitment and advertising/communications strategies

  • Strong presentation skills- really strong. And understand that PowerPoint is not the messenger, you are

  • Excellent communications skills. Be able to write your own stuff

  • Display strong closing techniques throughout the sales cycle

  • Articulate, motivated and organized. Able to work with a minimum of supervision

  • Comfortable working with senior executives and display ability to develop relationships at all levels

  • Proficiency with MS Office suite

  • We use Salesforce. Either know it, or be able to figure it out

  • Be comfortable in a team-selling environment

  • Be familiar with Power Messaging, or be smart enough to figure it out

  • If you really like a strong hierarchical corporate structure, you’ll be sad here. There is a minimum of training. We will all give you whatever you need to succeed, but there’s no three-week course or Bayard University or anything like that

  • Sometimes things go wrong. Occasionally we get frustrated. But we like each other, and people don’t leave here that often…

Client Services


Apply Now

You're the quintessential Point Person, the critical link between agency and client, fluently speaking the languages of business needs, creative ideation, and tech capabilities. You've got eyes in front, back, and each side of your head, anticipating and meeting challenges with the best people and airtight deliverables.

You're a relationship-builder, a detail-inspector, and a problem-dissolver all rolled into one capable package. You'll walk into every room answers in hand, already knowing what time it is. And when projects come to fruition, you'll prove that their look and functions are in clients' digital, financial, and strategic best interest.


Creative


Apply Now

You see things differently and strive to bring a new aesthetic to the world. This intrinsic love of design will serve you well here—you'll work on and with all manners of creative spanning the divide between viewer and message. Your skills will be put to use as part of a skilled and innovative creative team, bringing all knowledge and talent together in creation of amazing work spanning, digital, print, web, brand and guerilla.

Motion Graphics


Apply Now

You’re the creative lynchpin when it comes to all things video—animation, storyboarding, tracking, effects, and any other post-production need that arises. As such, you’ll need to speak the languages of design, typography, and audiovisual tropes fluently. It’s a tall order, but what the position calls for most is a characteristically vivid imagination behind everything you do.

Smooth moves, in other words. And a fresh sense of humor. A balanced sense of space. An ear for compelling musical touches. We want you because you make that all look easy—even when you’re juggling several deadlines.


Social Media


Apply Now

Promoting the best of brand expression is your modus operandi. You’ll work closely with both project teams and account teams to spur brand recognition across multiple social touchpoints, developing guidelines and templates for messaging with a voice that easily cuts through the noise.

You’ll foster community interaction between dedicated, like-minded individuals, parsing client needs to deliver compelling and story-driven snapshots at regular intervals. Your social savvy will have plenty of room to practice delivering engaging content: crafting messages, incorporating new platforms, monitoring impact, analyzing competition, and keeping abreast of industry trends. And you’ll do it all where you operate best, right in the thick of the action.


Technology


Apply Now

You’re a solver at heart, someone who walks up to a problem already figuring out the best language to tackle it. That intrinsic love of learning will serve you well here—we’ll match you with cross-functional teams at every project stage, pairing your empowering methodologies with all manner of creative talent.

By the same token, we’re excited to see how many hats you’ve got on. Java pro? Ruby whiz? Dual-wielding developer/designer? We’re all ears. Wow us with your mastery of raw code, frameworks, cross-platform/browser compatibility, and all the shades of nuance in between. Big picture to nitty-gritty, your native digital savvy will be invaluable as we iterate dynamic, integrated applications and processes to please the eye and kindle the imagination.
