Specialising in IT Services, our client is a huge global technology name that you’ll know well. Their London team is expanding and they’re now looking for a hungry, self-motivated sales professional with a little experience and a lot of energy to join them. This is an amazing opportunity to join a world leader in the tech sector with annual sales of close to $70billion and one for which you do not need sector specific experience, just the right skills and mindset. You will receive full training in all the services offered as well as 1-2-1 sales coaching to help you be the best you can be. If you bring the hard work and dedication, our client will give you all you need to be successful.
Our client sells world-leading technology products and services to businesses across the world. They offer both hardware and software solutions as well as professional services to their corporate clients from SMEs (Small & Medium-sized Enterprises) to huge global corporations. You’ll be joining a Surrey-based sales team with a focus on SMEs in the south of England where they have their strongest and most productive client base.
Your responsibility is to develop new business opportunities and take new clients live. You will start by using your skills to find, research and contact the decision-makers in each prospective client within your geographic area. Once you speak to them over the phone, it’s your job to understand their IT needs and then to introduce the ways in which you may be able to help them. The aim of these calls is to book meetings with prospective clients to discuss their needs in more detail and the next step is to attend the meetings yourself. Once relevant needs are identified, you’ll put together proposals and return to prospective clients to present those proposals, negotiate terms and take them live as new clients.
The role has the variety of desk-based work and meeting clients face-to-face so will suit those able to succeed over both the phone and in front of clients. You’ll be given all the training you need at the beginning and, thereafter, the autonomy to develop your client base in the way you choose.
