  • Complete accurate tracking of communication with current and potential customers in our CRM

  • Strategise with Account Executives to target prospect accounts to build pipeline 

  • Meet and exceed weekly KPI’s and deliver a high quantity of qualified sales opportunities


The skills you’ll bring include:

  • 2 years experience in a sales / sales development role with proven capabilities in account development and awareness of the buyer journey, sales process, and the stakeholders involved

  • Passionate about delighting customers with exceptional relationship building skills 

  • Excited by technology, curious and eager to learn more about IT Security products and services

  • Tenacious and driven, with a competitive personality, thrives in a fast paced and target driven environment

  • Creative, able to think independently and come up with new solutions 

  • Ambitious, dedicated to continuous learning and personal development.  Receptive to feedback and willingness to adapt

  • Highly organised with strong attention to detail in all areas of work

  • A team player who collaborates effectively as part of a high performing team, helping teammates and celebrating team success
