Whether you are a recent graduate wondering whether a sales focused position could be for you, or looking for the next step in your professional career, many people dismiss business development as a career because of the stereotype that all sales roles involve a large quantity of cold calling with little success. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR THIS ROLE!

Here at Zero Surplus, we are working with an industry leading technology company who are on the searching for a Global Sales Executive to join their successful and fast-growing team. This is not a software company, and it’s not cyber security company either, it’s something far more unique and creative than that. So please, don’t not apply on the assumption this will be like every other sales role out there as this is not the case. This is a unique and imaginative company who are driving their industry into the future with nonstop research and development.

Although having a passion for sales is important to drive yourself to succeed in this role, what is equally if not more important is the ability to communicate clearly and concisely. With offices spread across the globe in places as exclusive as Bahrain, Johannesburg and Taiwan, this role will enable you to develop your business development skills engaging an international clientele. 90% of communication between this role and the potential customers will be conducted via email atleast initially. Once connections have been established, communication can progress to telephone if appropriate. However, due to the international nature of the role, language barriers are going to occur and as a result, it is crucial that all communication must be clear and concise in order to gain interest and progress to the next stage. Added to the fact most of the communication is by email initially, lots of the target companies will be warm leads as this organisation will already work with their competitors, other companies within their own group, or in fact already with them but with a different product.

This is not your average sales role; this is an opportunity to get your foot in the door and an extremely creative and forward-thinking company trying to change the way we interpret and interact with technology. Both Graduates and candidates with a couple of years sales experience will be considered. If you’re looking for a sales role different from everything else on the market, something focused on quality thought out written introductions not hammering out cold calls then send us your CV.

Due to the location of the vacancy candidates must be able to drive, and will ideally be located in Saffron Walden, Bishop’s Stortford, Harlow, St. Albans, Luton, Stevenage, Letchworth Garden City, Welwyn and the surrounding areas. If you are keen to join a company who are driving their industry towards the future and lots of future development opportunity, please get in contact now.

For registration purposes please could you let us know where you are currently based or which locations you are considering as well as your required salary and notice period.

Please upload a Microsoft Word version of your CV where possible, excluding textboxes or images, as this can affect the consultant’s job matching process and therefore your details may not be picked up for a role.
