Software Sales Business Development Manager

Basic negotiable & DOE, first year OTE £60,000+

We are looking for an experienced, new business-focussed Sales Professional for a role selling Software products with our client who are based in Glasgow. The ideal candidate would likely be someone experienced in new business sales of software / web-based software products, although it is possible that applicants with a sales background in IT hardware or other IT related technology areas could also be considered providing that you also have an entirely new business-focussed background coupled with an extremely stable career history.

The successful candidate will be highly motivated and credible face-to-face IT sales professional who is looking for a new challenge in a role that can offer eventual progression to Board-level and to have an equity stake in the company. This role is focused entirely on obtaining new business from scratch and would only be suitable for individuals who are proven in this and who can exploit their exceptional self-sourcing ability and sales skills to continually deliver excellent results.

Role accountabilities:

  • To develop new business relationships in order to generate income to an agreed annual target
  • Work closely with the inside team on lead generation campaigns
  • Presentations to potential clients through direct communication, face to face meetings, telephone calls and emails
  • To actively and successfully manage the sales process throughout the lifecycle
  • To represent the company at industry events in a professional and polished manner with the intention of gaining new business leads and contacts
  • To manage and maintain a pipeline and ensure all sales administration is undertaken properly
  • To have a thorough understanding of potential clients’ business objectives

Candidate criteria:

  • A proven sales & business development background in software or other IT technology
  • Self-drive and motivation
  • Professionalism in everything you do
  • Positive mental attitude and an ability to quickly recover from setbacks
  • Ability to act on initiative and make decisions
  • A sense of urgency to get things done
  • Proven success in sales ability and demonstrable knowledge of the sales processes
  • Ability to grow and manage a personal pipeline from a standing start
  • Confident negotiator and a strong ability to close
  • Strong communication skills in all forms including written, oral, email, telephone, and presentation
  • Excellent organisational and time management skills
  • Full UK driving license essential.

Please note - applicants of interest will be required to complete a profiling assessment before moving towards first interview stage, and a presentation from you on how you would approach the job would be required at any second interview.

This is a full-time permanent position and the basic salary is negotiable and is depending on experience and ability. First year overall earnings should be in the region of £60,000 made up of a combination of basic salary and commission - although there is no limit on earnings and the company would be delighted to have to pay someone a six-figure remuneration over the course of a year if their sales successes were to merit this.

All applications will be treated with the strictest of confidence. If you feel that meet the requirements for this role and would like to apply, please do so through the link provided. A well written & detailed CV along with a non-generic covering letter specific to this vacancy would add significant weight to your application. Please note that due to time restrictions and the specific candidate requirements for this role, only the most suitable applicants will be contacted.
