Account Manager - Swedish Speaking

Look around. Whether you're at home, at work, out and about, almost everything we rely on needs plugging in. The electricals industry is a vast, global network, whether it's phones, tablets, speakers, cars and trains, household appliances, finished products or components. Some of the key players came together to establish the industry's number one digital source of information, news, training and events - they're looking for a sleeves rolled up, outgoing and independent salesperson to cover the Swedish market, based in an open shared space in Central London (with the bonus of great views on the walk to the office).

Sweden is a key market and there's a solid presence there; it's a market with an engaged audience of big brands. Your job will be to grow it by encouraging greater investment from the existing client base and adding to it with new partners, both major logos and new small and medium sized players. You'll be a confident, smart communicator in native level Swedish and fluent English (you'll also muck in on UK business).

The sales process here is relationship driven. Your clients are true partners and sales cycles need real investment of time and effort. You'll need to be proactive and willing to learn what makes your prospects tick in order to engage and close them. You'll also be someone that gets a real buzz out of the signature you've worked hard to get on the contract. Any digital media experience would make a great case to interview you but isn't a must.

This job genuinely is what you make it. You'll have a great mentor and coach, who will support you without holding your hand and encourage your development. You'll also be surrounded by an international team in a positive environment that has major corporate clients but has a start-up feel. Salary of £35-40k annual bonus (15-20%) is on offer.

I’ve been at Euro London since:  March 2004

About me: Placed by Euro London as a fresh Law & German graduate in 2001; this took me back to Germany (Düsseldorf) and gave me the skills and knowledge necessary to build a career here when returning to London in 2004. I remain a cricket and beer enthusiast but brewing kit and bat and ball are in storage while the children are small.

Fun fact: I once appeared on prime time Saturday night TV in Lederhosen as part of a German dance troupe
