Valtech is looking for a new Business Development Director / Sales Executive.
Do you know the agency game because you have lived it for years? Can you articulate the value of digital transformation to a B2B or B2C client in 50 words or less? Most importantly, as a digital native, can you translate the trends and lingo of the digital world into something a C-level executive can understand, value and buy?
If yes, and you are a true self-starter (recovering entrepreneurs welcomed) join us in the pursuit of becoming the leading digital agency globally.
Your job is to know the market, spot the digital whitespace, and pursue opportunities whether they are with your existing clients or new client prospects. You know the value of getting down-and-dirty with digital consulting rather than going on autopilot with generic slide decks.
You will be managing your own accounts and will be responsible for both the revenue side and the margin. You must be a deal-closer. But you also have to understand the fine act of balancing risks when bidding for new business.
You’ve had a similar position for the last 5 years or more, most likely in another digital agency or a technology partner. Your track record is proven when it comes to digital strategy, customer experience, digital planning, content management, and e-commerce.
