About the Role

You will be responsible for a blend of sales and account management, where two-thirds of your focus will be dedicated to driving impactful sales, and one-third will be devoted to nurturing and strengthening existing client relationships. Your mission will be to champion our innovative solutions, secure new business, and help guide them toward remarkable success.

Reporting to the General Manager, Americas, you will proactively identify and cultivate new business opportunities, using your persuasive skills and in-depth understanding of our products. Through targeted outreach, you will capture the attention of potential clients, educate them about our ground-breaking offerings, and inspire them to envision the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.

But it doesn't stop there. Your dedication to excellence extends beyond closing deals. You will play a pivotal role in building enduring partnerships with our valued customers, serving as their trusted advisor. By continuously staying abreast of consumer research and industry trends, you will possess an unrivalled knowledge of our solutions and how they precisely align with our client’s unique needs and aspirations.

Joining our passionate and ambitious team, you will be empowered to showcase your exceptional sales talents, forge meaningful connections, and contribute to the growth and success of Future Anthem. If you are ready to embark on an exhilarating journey with a trailblazing company that thrives on innovation and delivers unrivalled value to its clients, this is the role for you.

The role owns the commercial sales plan, as well as proposition development and the sales narrative.

  • Proven success rate at levels above sales quota
  • You are comfortable with a remote working environment
  • Ability to travel at least 25% of the time to customer events
