In a nutshell: though based in Amsterdam, you will be responsible for reeling in new business for Effectory internationally. Working closely with the back-office sales team and marketing department, you follow up on meetings scheduled ahead for you with senior liaisons at small and large companies. From the get-go, you invest in what ultimately could become a long-lasting relationship with new clients. You talk to (mostly) C-level and HR directors, to get to know what drives their company: you get to know their strategy, policy, current or planned developments that may affect their people and promote Effectory's potential role in making their working world better. You communicate openly and honestly about options. Although everything is based on team effort, you will be in charge of closing the deal before a consultant takes over the account.
Our vibrant and driven Sales team consists of Sales consultants, Inside sales and a Team assistant and jointly works towards fulfilling our international ambitions.
You are a confident conversation starter, a fully-fledged sparring partner and position yourself as the expert that you are, irrespective of who sits across the table or their seniority in experience. You talk the talk and maneuver well in all levels in an organization; meeting with a director does not deter you. You are booming with energy and enthusiasm and show entrepreneurial and commercial spirit in everything that you do. You love prepping well so you can ask on-point questions and offer ditto solutions, with the best survey options and result possible. We have no managers at Effectory and your high level of self-support, sense of responsibility, initiative and collaborative spirit make you a perfect match with us. You speak and write at least level C1 English, know just enough Dutch to get through the day, offer three or more years of (very recent) commercial deal-closing experience in an international setting, which you are eager to expand. You are based in Amsterdam but will travel abroad regularly.
