- Collaborative working style and fosters opinion
- Highly motivated with a track record of success and sales development

- Able to negotiate and compromise.
- Manage the contract review process and negotiate a mutually beneficial agreement in line with the company's guidelines and code of conduct.

- Able to handle variety and stay customer-focused (with a good sense of humour!)
