Junior/Graduate Sales Executive - IT/Software, fantastic opportunity!

Fantastic opportunity for a Junior or Graduate Sales Executive with strong academic grades (preferably up to at least A-level), excellent communication skills & a driven/proactive approach to break into the IT sector with a long established software house in Stowmarket as they continue to experience growth & success.

Reporting to the Sales Manager, the successful candidate will be very comfortable spending time on the phone as much of the role, certainly initially, will involve following up on new 'warm' leads (these typically come in via the website, trade shows or existing customers). The focus of this role is 100% NOT cold calling but rather on building relationships, establishing trust & maximising opportunities once a degree of initial interest in products/services has been shown.

As the role develops & as your confidence grows, you will have the opportunity to increase your level of face-to-face interaction, whether that be to meet new customers or further develop relationships with existing ones; this may also involve participation in on-site product demonstrations. An interest in technology or some level of technical awareness would be useful but of key importance is a willingness to pick this up & a desire to get up to speed with 'technical speak’ to enhance your credibility with customers.

In return for your commitment & efforts, you can look forward to a high level of autonomy (albeit with all the support/encouragement you need) & excellent opportunities for personal development/career progression together with a highly competitive salary & rewards structure.

Keen to know more? Simply send me a copy of your CV & we can have an initial conversation in the strictest confidence.
