Our client is a fast-growth SaaS Technology startup that helps improve people’s experience of their public services. The company is looking for graduates who want to work in sales but also want to sell something that genuinely has a positive impact on the world. This company will pay you a basic salary of £25,000 which will increase to £27,500 after 6-months and then £30,000 after a year. You will be in a team of graduates and have the chance to travel to attend client meetings on a regular basis.  

The company provides consultancy and a portfolio of software solutions that help public sector organisations improve their online presence and enhance their interactions with citizens.

  2. Contact warm leads from the company database. 
  3. Book and attend face-to-face meetings with clients. 
  4. Develop long-term relationships with clients- you’ll get to take them out for dinner and drinks! 
  5. Manage a portfolio of existing clients. 
  6. Get involved with Marketing projects. 

Why do I want this job? 

This is a great role for a commercially-minded person who wants the earning potential, pace and challenge that come with a commercial career, but who would like to sell a product that makes a genuine positive impact upon people’s lives. And on top of that: 

  1. Join a fun, dynamic team who are absolutely passionate about what they do. 
  2. Receive extensive training, both formally and on-the-job, that will help you thrive in your role. 
  3. The company believe in developing their staff and promoting from within: previous graduates who joined in this role have moved into Project Management, Account Management and even climbed the ladder up to Director level. 
  4. Office ping pong table and beer fridge!
