Paying up to £35,000
Account Executive – Award-Winning IT Apprenticeship Provider – Central London – up to £35K
Looking for amazing? Great, because so are we!
We are looking for an Account Executive to join the Apprenticeships and Training arm of our multi award-winning company!
This is your chance to join one of the leading apprenticeship and training providers in London, who offer our clients solutions that no-one else can, by providing a unique blend of solutions supported by our partnerships with Microsoft, BCS, ILM, CompTIA and City & Guilds. We aim to “Connect People, Performance and Productivity” by selling an ethical service which makes a genuine difference to people’s lives as well as the wider economy.
Unlike many providers, we can offer recruitment solutions, apprenticeships, functional skills, short courses, levy consultancy, and privately funded options for individuals. As a group, we are truly unique – ensuring our account teams are given every opportunity to find the right solutions for our customers. We are looking for a Client Development Executive who is equally as entrepreneurial and solutions orientated, and, just as importantly, fun-loving!
Our Account Executive develops new customer relationships and expands existing business opportunities.
You will do this by delivering highly competent consultative solutions of learning and development benefits to businesses. We want you to be excited about finding the right answers and creating sustainable business opportunities – not selling a solution that doesn’t fit!
You are ultimately responsible for both generating new business opportunities and nurturing long term relationships with customers – you must be able to clearly demonstrate success in identifying new business opportunities and dealing with sophisticated buyers in a fast-moving environment, and some of your duties will include intelligent marketing, face to face meetings and business development telephone calling. You will promote the Just IT and Skills Team portfolio of products and services through strategic partners, re-sellers and existing clients.
It would be great if you have industry experience, but we provide excellent training so a similar role in another industry would be significant as well if you are able to multi-task and deliver several projects concurrently.
This is a key role that you can continue to develop upwards in. We want you to grow with us!
·To enjoy learning and creating solutions for customers. You must be passionate about this.
·To identify and develop plans to develop business opportunities. Being organised is a huge benefit.
·To take responsibility for customer service management.
·To research and deliver highly skilled face to face solutions for customers.
·Maintaining all relevant management information on our systems correctly – quality data makes you money, so cherish it.
·To take ownership of your plan to deliver to your goals and targets – we want business people – not someone who does a job.
·To participate in the whole recruitment process!
·Highly developed written sales skills
·You must be an excellent communicator, reliable, tolerant, and determined
·You should have an entrepreneurial spirit and determination
·Be confident and have a strong sense of direction
·To be trustworthy and honest
·You must have the ability to operate well and contribute to a strong team environment
·You must have a strong understanding of sales processes
·Have good attention to detail
·An understanding of Government funding/recruitment models would be great but is not essential
We look after our staff, as expected from an official “Great Place to Work”. We help you build a career plan from day one and have created an environment where everyone feels happy and appreciated. You will be rewarded with a clear progression route, but you will have the chance to be part of regular events such as annual Summer and Christmas parties. Plus we have a great benefits package including private medical insurance, dental cover, travel season ticket loan, pension, discounted gym, day off for your birthday and a cake to celebrate, eye care and childcare vouchers, free fruit and soft drinks daily…phew!
