Job Details

GradAustralia - Sales Account Manager

About the role

We are launching exciting new products this year and are looking for a talented, honest sales representative to help us take these products to market for the first time.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to join an amazing team and play a lead role in bringing world-class products to market. It’s not a “sit there and we’ll tell you what to do” kind of role. There is unlimited scope for the right person to drive our sales strategy - you will bring new ideas and ambition to become a founding member of our team.

So why is this role "extraordinary"?

Impact - This is a rare opportunity, in that GradAustralia has hit success, but is still a small team with plenty of scope for you to help shape where we go next. You’ll be working with universities and blue-chip companies, in the driver’s seat and you'll guide new products to market.

Variety - We don’t limit ourselves to any one sector — we are always excited to move into entirely new spaces with fresh eyes. Our operating companies today range from education to media to recruitment, to name a few. As such, we’re in the fortunate position to be able to channel talented sales people towards the products and businesses that suit their interest and skill set.

Ownership - There’s no such thing as ‘just a salesperson’ at GradAustralia- you’ll be at the coal face and learning about the customer and product feedback first-hand. We recognise the value in this, and invite our sales team to take ownership of the products they sell and play an integral role in working alongside our broader team to guide the product evolution to meet customer needs.

Team & culture - The business with the best team on the field will win, and we hire the best people who we can trust to excel and put their ideas into action. You’ll be joining a high-performance culture and team with a track record of building successful businesses from scratch, fast.

What success looks like

The basics will include identifying and developing new business opportunities via telephone, email and face to face meetings, reporting on sales progress, and taking on a representative role at industry events.

You will take ownership of your accounts and work with a high degree of autonomy, and be willing to roll up the sleeves to get things done. You will have have confidence in prospecting for new leads across a range of sectors and have an instinct for identifying opportunities.

The ideal candidate will be ruthlessly results driven, adaptable, and thrive on new challenges in a fast-paced environment. We believe in building long term relationships and serving the best interests of the customer with integrity. This means you’ll need to be great with people, and have the empathy and people skills to truly understand the customer and their needs.

If you don’t already have a wealth of sales experience, we are willing to back junior candidates who we believe have the raw talent required to grow into a sales leadership role. ‘Raw talent’ in this case means:

A. Exceptionally good emotional intelligence and people skills

B. Sheer hustle and drive

C. Fast learner

Honest, straight-shooting sales candidates are mandatory in our team. We won't accept anything less.

If you’re a self starter and itching to ‘punch above your weight class’, we want to hear from you!

If it’s not you, but you know someone who fits the bill, introduce us and we’ll gladly pay a $1,000 finder’s fee.
