The Company

We are a high-end technology business headquartered in gorgeous offices in The Shard, London. We're a young firm with a global presence. Since going through an M&A process with one of the largest CRM systems on the planet, we are destined to have our most successful year to date. We have offices in the UK and soon, the US.

Our vision is to grow our firm from the bottom up - we hire talented graduates and place a huge emphasis on training and development, as well as offering unrivaled career progression.

The Opportunity

After a successful round of funding, we're searching for the best graduate sales talent to join our cutting-edge firm. This is the first step on the ladder that leads to Business Development Manager, Sales Director and beyond. This is a fast-paced sales role and it isn't easy but it is worth it. After extensive practical training, you'll have exposure to, and contact with, high-profile clients across the banking, food, science, engineering and energy sectors.

We ensure the social dynamic reflects the friendly yet hard-working office environment. We expect the best of our employees and in return, our graduates will earn a basic salary of £25k in their first year, expecting £50K (Year 1) inclusive of commission.

We offer real career opportunities in a fast-growing, friendly firm with an energetic and ambitious team. Our remuneration package is attractive and you will be rewarded on the basis of your personal performance, as well as on the basis of the firm's overall achievements.

We are looking for resourceful, bright and confident candidates with the following:

Degree at grade 2:1 or above - we advise and work with the highest earning companies on the planet and so the intellectual ability understand how they operate is essential

Recruitment or sales experience will be considered as a big advantage but is not essential

Excellent written and verbal communication skills - our clients are high-end, high-profile businesses who expect the best

The ability to tailor your style to suit a particular opportunity - in other words, being adaptable and socially intelligent is a must

The hunger to learn - this scheme is a mixture of work and education. One cannot work without the other

Main Responsibilities will include:

Generating new business opportunities across the UK;

Building relationships with C-level clients

Opportunity to approach new sectors on behalf of the firm

Attending client meetings and closing opportunities


We appreciate that to get the best talent we have to offer an excellent package and fantastic long-term opportunities. This is why we offer a market-leading £25k base and generous commission package.

In addition, we offer excellent benefits following a successful probationary period such as gym membership discounts, Friday socials on the company and an annual trip to Barcelona on the company!
