Company Company Profile

Have you got the calling to work overseas? Are you looking to kick-start your career in business development, sales and people management? Meltwater Group is a global leader in the field of online media monitoring and other Software-as-a-Service tools. As we continue our global expansion we are looking to find our next generation of management!

Since 2001 the entrepreneurial Meltwater Group has grown from only “two guys and a coffee machine” to become 800+ people globally, and a leader in online media monitoring and other digital media software tools. As Europe’s 25th fastest growing software company in 2010, every day we help our 4000+ clients throughout the UK & Ireland understand how they are faring in social media and online news!

Meltwater personifies the very essence of ambition, drive and fun. With us, it’s not what have you done, but what are you capable of. We focus more on the potential of each individual rather than their background, experience or degree discipline. Our fast-paced career paths focus on business development, account management and people management, and give graduates the chance to flex their business muscles on an international stage!

Training & Profiles

Our employees work exclusively with one of our digital media software tools (Meltwater News, Press and Buzz), and start within either our new business or client relations teams. We are looking for ambitious, driven individuals with excellent communication skills, enthusiasm and the desire to succeed on an international level!

New Business

Our New Business Development department is responsible for acquiring new clients for Meltwater, and is central to our global expansion. In New Business, you will be on the front line, learning what fuels a company, how to pitch concepts and ideas, and how to develop your own client portfolio.

Client Relations

In Client Relations, you will be given a portfolio of existing clients to manage from across all industries. Your relationship building and contract negotiation skills will be sharpened through the development of long term accounts, and you will regularly consult with your clients on their online media needs.

Once you have mastered the initial sales and business development stage you will begin your journey into management. Hopefully this will be within your first twelve months with us! Initially you will manage a team of people, and as you become more confident in management, you will be eligible for further management roles at an international level. The end goal is up to you and your ambitions: do you see yourself managing an office in New York, or running client relations in Dubai? The journey is what you make it...

Application Procedure

How long before I can consider moving internationally?
