Account Manager - Valencia

Purpose and contribution to company strategy

As an Account Manager you will be generating revenue by selling certification products and associated upsells to clients within an assigned region. This job is of the hybrid type, meaning that you will have to skilfully juggle several responsibilities, namely: obtaining new contracts, keeping existing contracts and managing all contracts efficiently. You will also have a flair for the style of communication that builds trust and drives results. Acting with boldness and efficiency as you liaise between Sales and Delivery, clients will realise and appreciate the unmatched value that the Programme has to offer. Our customer-focused strategy is to keep our clients smiling!

Generating revenue in line with commercial targets within a designated sales territory. This is where you will be turning lead into gold by:

  • Transforming prospective business into new business accounts via calling, email and social strategies.

It’s about meeting preparation, conducting an effective needs analysis and delivering enticing sales presentations. You will also be required to facilitate Q&As and field objections, thereafter, conducting post-meeting activity effectively.
  • Utilising your excellent negotiation skills to close deals through qualified offer preparation. Your trustworthy demeanour in this area will ensure that agreements are long game focused as well as long lasting.
  • Achieving company growth targets regarding new business acquisition and the renewal of current business contracts.
