As a New Business Sales, your main focus is identifying, creating and closing new business opportunities. How? First by building a sustainable pipeline of new opportunities for Planon’s Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) within EMEA West (Nordics, Netherlands and the UK), and secondly by closing those opportunities successfully. Together with presales you will respond to RFI/RFP’s, give sales presentations, attend demos at client locations and manage the contract negotiations.
We promise we’ll challenge you every step of the way: you’ll be working with world-leading clients and get responsibilities others may only dream of.
Based in Gothenburg your primarily focus will be on the Swedish and other Nordic markets. However, part of an international team you will work closely together with colleagues from the Netherlands, UK and Sweden.
No matter whether you’re visiting a prospect or customer, working from our Gothenburg office or at home, flexibility is crucial. Travel is part of the job –some days you’ll be spending at our clients’ offices, while on other days you’ll be working in the office or at home.
You successfully fulfill your role by:
