My client are one of the leaders in business intelligence within the global mining and resources industry. They deliver high value, premium subscription-based content through digital, print, conferencing and events channels. Since their founding, they've grown to a team of over 200 and are listed on the Australian Stock Exchange with offices in London, Perth, Hong Kong, Manila and Belo Horizonte.
"You're only as good as the company you keep" - their client base shows the quality of their work and the effectiveness of their intelligence; prestigious clients such as BP, Glencore International, Shell and BHP have worked with them for years and have led to them having a name for doing things well.
This is a hybrid role between Account Management and New Business. The Subscriptions Account Executive is responsible for looking after current client relationships as well as achieving new relationships.
We're looking for someone with the capability to successfully manage relationships, making sure that the clients are receiving the service they want in order to open opportunities for upselling.
The Account Executive role is one that is only suitable for, and open to, the very highest calibre of graduates. They are experts in what they do and - since they are a very career-minded organisation - they only hire graduates who have the tenacity, curiosity, intellectual capacity and drive to become experts, too.
There are certain requirements that we use to shortlist candidates for this role, including (but not limited to!):
- 2:1 or above from a Russell-group (or thereabouts) university
- Strong selling and negotiation skills
- Strong interpersonal skills
- High-level customer service ethos and the ability to build client rapport
- High-level computer skills and an ability to grasp new concepts quickly
- Good understanding of CRM systems and Subscription Systems
They recognise that, in order to get the best employees working for them, they have to offer more than just excellent progression, intellectually challenging work and an enjoyable environment. This is why they offer a basic starting salary of £27,000-30,000 plus average commission earnings of £12,000.
