The ideal candidate will have a strong passion for the business sector, excellent communication skills, and a knack for building relationships with clients. This role goes beyond traditional sales; it’s about understanding the unique needs of clients and guiding them towards the most suitable products and services to support their business growth and leadership aspirations.
Our client is a leading Geelong business with a long and successful history, and renowned for their proud association with a diverse range of stakeholders. Working to both support and drive business activity and economic outcomes, they provide services, events and industry recognised education and training programs that facilitate the growth of business.
This working environment is one of the best out there. Collaborative, supportive, trusting and engaging. On one hand the environment is relaxed and casual, but on the other, business activity is fast paced and agile with an accompanying growth mindset.
Benefits On Offer:
A full time, 12 month fixed term opportunity, this is an excellent chance to be part of a forward thinking organisation driven by values and going through an exciting period of growth and expansion. Opportunities for professional development and learning, flexible working arrangements and competitive salary and incentives are on offer.
We are seeking applications from individuals with a positive attitude, persistent drive, and proven initiative. With experience in business development, account management or consulting (ideally in a B2B environment), you’ll have a strong passion for growing businesses, through a consultative and relationship-driven approach to understanding client wants and needs. With strong communication, influencing and negotiation skills, you naturally build rapport with clients and stakeholders and can work effectively independently, managing multiple priorities and you thrive in a dynamic fast paced environment.
