Key responsibilities:

The role of Account Manager is to be first point of contact for designated existing customers.

This role requires you to have previously successfully managed a portfolio of key accounts, and have strong influencing, customer service and negotiating skills.

Flexibility is essential, as at peak times there will be a requirement to work additional hours to ensure that our customer needs are met.
