Account Manager (Inside Sales)

Are you an intelligent, coachable, hardworking individual with a passion for delivering excellence to your clients? Do you thrive in a result driven environment where you’ll be part of a growing, thriving team? Do you possess the written and verbal communication skills to build strong internal and external relationships, with colleagues and your own accounts? Are you looking for a role with clear and attainable career progress, within an industry leading software company? 


The job: as an Account Manager (Inside Sales), you’ll be supporting Key Account Managers and Sales Managers, along with managing a handful of your own accounts. 


As you’d expect, much of your day to day work will take place at home for now. However, Planon has always operated a hybrid approach to working, so you can expect in the future to spend time in the office, at home and face-to-face with clients, when it is deemed safe and appropriate again. Regardless, you’ll be well supported by a committed and dedicated team and will receive relevant training.  


Responsibilities shall include, but not be limited to: 

  • Proactively manage your own accounts (about 5-6); 
  • Identifying, creating and closing new opportunities within those accounts; 
  • Support Key Account Managers with activities such as creating quotes, maintaining Salesforce, handling requests for information and chasing outstanding invoices; 
  • Working with the wider UK team on key strategic projects related to sales improvement; 
  • Occasional attendance at industry events; 
  • Visiting clients when necessary.
