How this role fits into our team
We want someone who is great at and loves new business – opening new doors, building value and differentiating through a well thought out disciplined sales process and getting new customers ‘over the line’.
As a true sales animal we expect you to be very hungry to earn via commission. This role is purely new business led and does not encompass any account management and your track record should suggest this is where you bias lies. You are a hunter not a farmer.
You will be a definite leader that can challenge a sales process when required and influence a sales strategy that you believe in which really drives growth. Working closely with our Marketing Manager in order to support your endeavours you will be expected to self-generate opportunities as well as exploit our lead referral partners to maximum effect.
You are someone that can network the hell out of the local area and perhaps already have a book of contacts which you are eager to tap into whilst developing further our strategic partnerships & referral partners.
Being well versed in the use and exploitation of Marketing and CRM systems to support your sales activities is crucial.
In a fast-growing company, there are always lots of balls to juggle, so you must have the ability to prioritise workload, manage multiple prospects, opportunities and partners. We can’t stand still and must always be improving, so someone who wants to grow and develop with us will fit in just fine.
This is a great opportunity for someone talented to join a fast-growing technology business at an exciting stage of its development. A competitive nature and can-do attitude are also something we value here at Concert and we are looking for a dedicated, results driven, outgoing and ambitious sales animal to join our exciting team.
This is a crucial role for our growth plan and will be rewarded and respected as such.
