  • You will undertake a range of sales activities including pipeline and forecast reporting, identifying new prospective providers, following up leads, delivering webinars, attending relevant events and ultimately helping our field sales team in securing sales revenues to achieve targets.
  • You will liaise with the marketing team to develop briefing documents for marketing initiatives and campaigns to support your sales generation activities.
  • Follow up on leads and conduct research to identify potential prospects in both existing and new markets.
  • Manage incoming sales leads and ensure every enquiry is managed in the optimum manner.
  • Work with our content marketer to compose press releases and content for news articles, blogs and case studies.
  • Execute market research campaigns on both clients and competitors.
  • Produce monthly external client sales reports and internal sales forecasting/pipeline reports using in-house reporting tools.
  • Process client software orders and send activation codes.
  • Promote and book client Continuous Professional Development (CPD) events.
  •  Co-ordinate and plan customer and corporate events, customer conferences, forum and exhibition stands with responsibility for pre and post event lead generation activities.
