  • Consistently delivering compelling and relevant presentations, ensuring customers’ questions and objections are anticipated and successfully addressed. 
  • Providing regular reporting and tracking pipeline and forecasting management.
  • Attending key global events throughout the year (e.g., NAB) and in partnership with the Marketing Manager, act as a ‘PR ambassador’ for the companies’ products and services, to build a consistent awareness and understanding of company offering and ethos.

  • You are both technically and creatively minded when consulting with customers; with the ability to successfully navigate systems, people, and culture through providing a compelling offer that thoroughly meets their needs.
  • You enjoy developing and maintaining relationships with C-level executive decision-makers and stakeholders across the industry, in fact, it is one of your key strengths.
  • You see yourself as self-motivated, autonomous, and are committed to using and making the most of sales CRM systems as a tool to enhance the customer experience.
  • You have a keen interest in identifying and understanding customer trends, needs, behaviour, and key business drivers.
  • You have good leadership skills/capabilities built on the values of collaboration, listening, empathy, optimism, and encouragement of others.
  • You are happy to travel to see customers up to 50% of the time.

This is an inclusive company that values, promotes, and encourages a culture of decency, quality, and collaboration.
