“I’M A SPOTTER.” “WHAT, PLANES?” ''NO, OPPORTUNITIES!’
THIS IS YOUR JOB
In a nutshell: based in Amsterdam, you will be responsible for reeling in new business for Effectory in the Netherlands.. Working closely with the back-office sales team and marketing department, you follow up on meetings scheduled ahead for you with senior liaisons at small and large companies. So no more cold calling for you! From the get-go, you invest in what ultimately could become a long-lasting relationship with new clients. You talk to (mostly) C-level and HR directors, to get to know what drives their company: you get to know their strategy, policy, current or planned developments that may affect their people and promote Effectory’s potential role in making their working world better. You communicate openly and honestly about options. Although everything is based on team effort, you will be in charge of closing the deal before a Consultant takes over the account. You have a lot of freedom to make your own decisions and close the deal the way you think is best. We have very good insights into our sales funnel with high-quality dashboards. This means that you can take on a data-driven approach to reach your goals!
THIS IS YOU
You are a confident conversation starter, a fully-fledged sparring partner and position yourself as the expert that you are, irrespective of who sits across the table or their seniority in experience. You talk the talk and maneuver well in all levels in an organization; meeting with a Director does not deter you. You are able to understand what the needs are of the client and translate this to our instruments. You are booming with energy and enthusiasm and show entrepreneurial and commercial spirit in everything that you do. You love prepping well so you can ask on-point questions and offer ditto solutions, with the best survey options and result possible. We have no managers at Effectory and your high level of self-support, sense of responsibility, initiative and collaborative spirit make you a perfect match with us.
You speak and write fluently Dutch and speak English at a high level. You have at least three or more years of (very recent) commercial deal-closing experience, which you are eager to expand. You are based in Amsterdam but will travel all around the Netherlands regularly (so driver’s license needed).
As a Sales you will work with targets and KPI's, but not with an individual bonus structure.

THIS IS WHAT WE OFFER
