Jake Simpson

Business Development Executive (Membership Services)

What are you here to do?

My role as the Business Development Executive is to handle new memberships. We have a variety of businesses from all sectors who approach the Chamber with a level of interest through multiple channels, it's my job to listen and understand how the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce can help an organisation on its journey to growth and sustainability.

Your ‘USP’ - what unique thing do you bring to the role that makes you brilliant at it?

I am a dynamic, creative, results-orientated SALES PROFESSIONAL who prides myself upon striving to excel in everything I am involved in. I have gained a range of skills in my previous and current roles within not only sales but also management, marketing, and business development which has made me into the enthusiastic professional I am today. My life experiences in the hospitality, events, and entertainment industry have contributed to me being a strong inspirational leader and an excellent communicator when dealing with people from all walks of life, as well as the ability to adapt to new environments and develop new skills very quickly.

Why is Sheffield the best UK city to live, work and play?

Sheffield has always been the city that has always had the right balance between keeping its heritage and modernising. From the amazing theatres, restaurants, and museums, to one of the biggest football rivalries in the world, you have a few boxes ticked and if that's all too exciting to have on your doorstep, then you have the Peak District where you can take a moment to step out of the routine and hike, which has to be one of the best activities you can do in Sheffield.
