Senior Sales Executive - Job Description


Can you pursue and close large, complex deals at large companies? If you don’t have a proven track record of closing big deals and bringing in exponential revenues then this role is not for you.


What we’re looking for…

You’re a big-game hunter! The thrill of the hunt and rush of the close give you a visceral high. Your product is disrupting the industry and you relish the challenge of dragging your prospect into the 21st century – disrupting old ways of thinking and cherishing that moment when they ‘get it’ - you know you’ve just helped change their business forever. It was a hard slog navigating the various divisions, personalities and politics at the client, but your perseverance, relationships, creativity and technical sales skills won through. You winner! Now on to the next challenge…
