I am now managing the Payments space for Michael Page Sales, London and keen to connect with as many sales-focused Account Director's as possible.

Michael Page have been market leaders in Professional Services recruitment for over 40 years and whereas the job market is generally quieter for obvious reasons than usual at present, things are getting busier and it's important that relationships are forged & maintained.

Client Details

Michael Page (under PageGroup) were first established over forty years ago and are now a global, market leading recruitment business. Professional Services as a wider industry (legal, payments, accountancy, fintech, FX) has always been a key focus area for Page, especially in London.

I have been with Michael Page for over three years now and in that time have worked with a number of clients in my focus area, the Professional Body/Education space (clients include ICAEW, AICPA/CIMA, ACCA, Pearson, London School of Economics, Computershare and CIPD).

I am now to manage the Professional Services space for Michael Page Sales and am delighted to be taking on this challenge.


Key responsibilities as an Account Director in the Payments space will be to manage relationships with existing clients and look for opportunities to generate further revenue from those accounts. You may also have a team of Account Manager's below you and you will almost certainly be responsible for managing your company's key accounts. You will be involved in strategic, business critical decision making and it is paramount that your relationships with key accounts are excellent.

If you are reading this advert then you already know what a great key/senior account management professional/Account Director does on a day-to-day basis, and I would love to connect with you.


Please apply to this advert or drop me an email if you are looking for an Account Director position in the Payments space in any capacity.

You will have a proven track record in successfully achieving and exceeding sales revenue targets from within accounts that you are managing and will be a consultative, commercial professional. You will be a personable relationship manager and look at your client relationships as partnerships. You may have experience in managing teams of salespeople/account manager's or you may only have ever been tasked with solely focusing on managing key accounts. You will have had exposure to strategic, business critical decision making in your capacity as a sales professional and will regard yourself as well-rounded and consummate.

You will be interested in either/both the SME market and FTSE/large corporate market.

Job Offer

The job market is not as buoyant as it has been at present, it's simply not. However, there are jobs out there and even if the dream job for you isn't on the market right now, it will be at some point and it is therefore essential to be primed and ready.

Michael Page has an unrivalled network of contacts across the Payments and Professional Services landscape and I am busy speaking with as many past, present and future clients as possible so that much like you, I'm able to respond quickly and effectively when things pick up further.
