The Opportunity

Are you a natural salesperson with the ability to work calmly under the pressure of simultaneously developing and following up on sales leads and keeping an eye on new clients you’ve helped land? Are you looking for a place to further your career where the market for you to demonstrate (and be rewarded for) your excellent hunting and client service capabilities, ability to build relationships with executives, and ultimately deliver the results is (almost) limitless.
 
If you answered yes to these questions this may be the job for you, particularly if you’re passionate about joining an organization that specializes in learning innovation.
 
As a Business Development Executive, you will be responsible for achieving your personal revenue target through direct selling of our Digital Learning Solutions to new enterprise customers and by driving additional revenue through current clients. We are looking for a confident "hunter-type" sales attitude, matched with solid all-around knowledge of the market for learning solutions and strong client/opportunity management skills.  Looking for someone who’s as happy prospecting as they are caring for existing clients and understands how to balance the two.


Core Responsibilities:

  • Drive new revenue by securing Fortune 1000 clients (focus on Fortune 500) across the US and Canada.   
  • Develop and manage a consistent opportunity pipeline of qualified prospects.
  • Follow up and report on all leads, prospects and opportunities
  • Write and manage client proposals
  • Manage client communication and account strategy.
  • Consistently meet sales objectives
  • Follow all workplace health and safety protocols.

Required Skills/ Experience

  • Bachelor's degree in business or technology preferred
  • 5+ years of experience with a focus on Digital Learning Solution sales
  • A consistent record of goal achievement
  • Experience selling learning or custom solutions that vary in size and complexity
  • Familiarity with consultative selling and negotiating techniques.
  • Ability to think analytically, logically and systematically
  • Knowledge of custom learning design and development approaches/technologies
  • Proven track record of priority management
  • Ability to handle most customer meetings without another consultant on hand (but one will be available when needed!)
  • Experience assessing business problems and recommending appropriate solutions
  • Experience selling to Manufacturing, Automotive, Finance, Insurance, Retail, Distribution and Telecommunications is an asset
  • Experience selling into the US is an asset
