We are currently looking for an enthusiastic Account Executive with excellent customer facing skills to join our UK & Ireland sales team. As part of the role you will undertake a degree level apprenticeship which will last 3 years in Business to Business Sales. We see this role as ideal for candidates who are interested in building, or further developing, a sales career.
In this exciting and fast-paced role, you will be surrounded by a team of professionals from many different teams including Sales, Marketing, Development and Professional Services, all of whom have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with you. The team is responsible for direct sales of products and services into a variety of sectors in the Employment, Further Education, training providers and Local Government markets.
What does the role involve?
As an Account Executive, your days will be varied but will focus on new business generation and sales support. You will achieve this by supporting marketing campaigns, handling inbound enquiries, qualifying opportunities, managing data within Salesforce and conducting research to improve customer/competitor information. Most of the contacting you will be required to do will be via the phone or Skype and so an excellent telephone manner is required. Additionally, there will be some travel required for this position.
You will also support our account directors by booking meetings and arranging site visits for the pre-sales team. In addition, you will work with other colleagues to chase outstanding quotes and proposals and to secure renewals.
With this role, many of the team go on to expand their existing sales experience going into full territory accounts management or even field sales, and so you can keep developing your career.
What skills and experience do I need?
First and foremost, you will have a passion for working with customers and a thirst for developing your existing skills whilst also learning new ones. You will have a grade C or above in 2 A-level subjects and grades C or above in GCSE English & Maths (or Level 3 equivalents). This is an entry requirement for the apprenticeship degree.
You will be keen to immerse yourself in the relevant sectors by developing a commercial awareness and you will have strong organisation and problem-solving capabilities.
It goes without saying that you will be a natural and confident communicator with a professional and consultative approach. You will be used to managing and prioritising your own work load and your multi-tasking skills will be put to good use from day one.
Along with an understanding of the importance of accurate reporting and forecasting, you will have a keen interest in technology and be a proficient user of Microsoft Office.
