SALES EXECUTIVE - KNOWLEDGE SHARING FACILITATOR

This sales job does not require you to sell! It requires you to understand the needs of the people you talk with. Your ability to balance attentive listening with precise talking is crucial. This position is as much about introducing our events to potential clients as it is understanding the reasons why they could be (or not) a solution to their challenges.

You will be reporting directly to the Managing Director and you will be in charge of the following tasks:

  • Deeply understand the product you are in charge of selling (meaning understand the market and its drivers)
  • Position yourself at the same professional level as the individuals you’ll be meeting over the phone
  • Be able to stay confident and humble at the same time
  • Strategically and efficiently engage in two-way discussions with your targeted audience
  • Bridge the gap between clients’ needs and the value our products can deliver
  • Follow up with your clients with personalized emails and call backs
  • Close deals (or cash-in, as you prefer)
  • Manage your accounts: build and maintain relations with clients on the long run
  • Work closely with the rest of the team providing continuous feedback

We do value personalities but a few requirements must be met for the position:

  • Perfect level of spoken and written English
  • Willingness and desire to learn and constantly improve yourself (self questioning and humility are key)
  • Have a certain interest for processes and organization (it is actually the main part of your job!)
  • No fear of deadlines and high objectives
  • Work under pressure at periods of high activity
  • Some commercial studies and background experience in cold call sales are a huge plus
  • Ability to work on more than one task at the same time and switch easily between different subjects

Don’t be afraid to surprise us, we usually like unexpected situations.
Motivation, vision, objectives – this is what we are looking for!

So if you feel like exploring, understanding and analyzing what makes and un-makes business, then send us your CV with a short cover letter at whynottograbmychanceandjump@connect-minds.com with this subject line: KSF-Application.

We look forward to receiving your application!
