Software company with a social conscience

We are looking for a graduate with fluent French and Italian language skills who wants to embark upon a client facing account management role for a technology start-up company.

The company

Our client sits in the artificial intelligence space, and helps its clients to reduce their carbon footprints. This is a technology company with a social conscience: it was founded by three professionals from different industries with a shared vision to use technology to enable large utility and telecoms companies to reduce their carbon footprint. The company has had great success in the UK market and is expanding into French- and Italian-speaking regions. It's now looking for an Account Manager with fluent French and Italian language skills to look after their customers there.

The role

This is not a traditional Sales role- you won't be winning new business, but managing customer accounts once they have been won by the Sales team. You'll be monitoring projects through to completion, visiting customers and helping them use the solution, tracking their spend and answering their queries. You must be fluent in French, Italian and English because you will be working in all three languages. The position will require international travel to events, meetings and tradeshows so you must be mature, independent and willing to travel. This company like to treat their clients so you can expect to host major utility and telecom companies in VIP boxes at Chelsea football ground or at Gaucho steak restaurant.

The culture

This is a very active company that think employee health and wellbeing is important. The company offer subsidized gym membership for staff and often go running in Hyde Park together.

The progression

This is a start-up in hyper growth mode and you will be one of the first non-experienced sales people to join the company. If you are successful in this role you can expect to manage the entire region and grow a team beneath you. Top earners are taking six figure salaries home.

The fluent French and Italian- speaking Account Manager will be:

Fluent in French, Italian and English

Mature and credible - you will be meeting clients from day one

A good relationship builder - you will be looking after client relationships
