SOFTWARE ADVISOR

Newcastle upon Tyne

Location: Newcastle upon Tyne

Do you want to earn £45,000 – £55,000 per year without ever making a cold call? Are you up to the challenge of working USA hours? Are you naturally curious, intelligent and competitive?

Fast track your career by joining a rapidly growing technology startup in the heart of Newcastle. We’re building innovative products and platforms for software companies throughout the world and are looking for exceptional salesperson to join our software advisory team.

THE ROLE

As a software advisor, you’ll spend your day making outbound telephone calls to technology professionals in the US, Canada and Europe helping assess their software requirements and advising them about available solutions. You’ll be making lots of calls, sending plenty of emails and creating high quality written sales leads. You’ll be working on warm inbound enquiries, so there’s no cold calling involved.

Key aspects of the role include:

  • outbound telephone calls and emails to senior technology professionals
  • identifying a prospect’s software needs through in-depth telephone conversations
  • writing up accurate, clear notes for each conversation
  • identifying additional prospect information using online research

THIS IS YOU:

  • you’re a confident and intelligent communicator. A 20 minute conversation with a senior business professional is second nature
  • you’re inquisitive, curious and have an agile mind. You’ll ask plenty of questions in order to understand business challenges
  • you have excellent writing skills. You can convert an in-depth telephone conversation into a concise, accurately written report
  • you’re persistent and focused. You’ll come to work each day energised and ready to achieve your goals

Ideally, you’ll be able to demonstrate a track-record of success in a similar role, such as sales or telemarketing. However, if you’re from a non-sales background but feel you can deliver the qualities above, we’d love to hear from you.

We don’t expect you to be an expert in the software markets we operate in (we’ll help you with that) but if you’ve previously worked with, or have an affinity towards, software or technology you’ll have a definite advantage.

You’ll be speaking with businesses in the US and Canada so you must be willing to work west coast USA hours, meaning 3pm – 11pm or 4pm-midnight UK time depending on the time of year.

Is this you? If it is, please email us your CV along with a covering letter.
