Job Details

This has to be one of the most interesting, innovative, service-led companies we’ve supported that have an unbelievable NPS score and culture which has delivered growth for all involved.

They’re pacey, they’re curious, they think differently and provide solutions to the workplace which is delivering some game-changing results when it comes to employee engagement.

So, a few questions for you:

  • Are you in sales and looking to be part of a business which provides a unique offering which can transform the culture and performance of organisations?
  • Are you in sales and frustrated about the lack of innovation your company provides or perhaps you’re operating at a slow pace which you’re finding draining?
  • Are you used to working in long sales cycles, selling solutions, and know how to build relationships with the emotional intelligence of when to pursue something and when to drop it?

If you’re thinking, yes actually, that’s me, then this is going to excite you!

This is a role and business which will inspire you and reward you well.  These guys are different from their competition in so many ways and genuinely provide a unique point of difference.  They have a culture which is all about collaboration, being service orientated balanced with ambition to deliver some compelling solutions to realise some serious growth.

Over the last few years, this organisation has transformed its capability in what it can deliver.  They’ve developed innovative solutions and are continuing to do so, and due to this adaptability and growth they’re going through, they’re now looking for a Head of Sales to take them into their next phase of growth.

Their new innovation is currently delivering 25% of the business revenue but could easily be 5 times this and that’s where you come in!

This role will see you in a new business development role, working on long sales cycles to win large business contracts.  To be successful in this role we’re looking for:

  • A hunter of new business in the B2B world – you thrive in winning new business and developing relationships.
  • Someone who is experienced in long sales cycles and working with big contracts in a B2B capacity working with various stakeholders.
  • Someone who is used to solution-based selling and understanding customer needs early on.
  • A determination, discipline, tenacity and resilience which has seen you previously deliver impressive sales results.
  • Someone who cares. You’ve got to have a balance of being results-driven and being service-led.  

This is a growing SME who is delivering something special.
