My client is a market leader in a very niche SaaS sector. Due to continued growth, they are looking to add an ambitious Sales Development Representative to their team.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is starting out in their sales career, or someone who is looking for the next step in their development in an ambitious environment that encourages rapid career progression.

Working closely with the Marketing Manager you will research, identify and engage new prospects, building relationships with key decision-makers and influencers to better understand their needs and product fit.

Where there is a good fit, you will book the meetings for a member of the sales team to deliver a product demonstration.

The Role

  • Hunting and developing new leads, identifying prospects, building relationships and booking in appointments.
  • Effective use of the phone, e-mail and social selling to maximise meetings booked and revenue won.
  • Be a great storyteller, capable of composing engaging content with an understanding what is relevant to a given audience (and why)
  • Excellent time-management skills, being able to prioritize key tasks, manage multiple conversations at any given time.
  • Be a great listener and communicator, sharing knowledge and influencing for a positive outcome.
  • Maintain and manage their CRM system, keeping pipeline of opportunities updated.
  • Learn and maintain knowledge of products.
  • Develop full knowledge and understanding of the marketplace for our products.
  • Respond to inbound leads and qualify their interest.
  • Work closely with the Marketing team to prospect into new markets.
  • Conduct research into new markets to understand prospective customer needs.
  • Collaborate with sales executives to ensure the company's goals and targets are met.

The Person

  • Passionate about sales and developing your career in this arena
  • Ideally you will be educated to a degree level or equivalent, but this is not essential.
  • Motivated to exceed expectations and work to targets.
  • Excellent written and communication skills.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a leading North East based organisation at an exciting time with genuine opportunities for career development and progression.
