Key Account Manager

Our client always does things differently. They are fearless thinkers, mad scientists and adventurous designers who believe making soap leads to brave ideas, bold inventions and beautiful bubbles.

The company has big plans to make the world a cleaner, greener, more colourful place. They invite everyone to join them as a pioneer for a future where doing business is doing good for all.

Let’s get one thing straight – you’re not coming to just sell soap, or cleaning products. (Though that will happen, trust them). You’re joining people to move the hearts and souls and minds of others all over the world that see the world differently. Our client think about cleaning as an act of creative expression, a gesture of rebellion, and, yes, an escape from the normal.

After a great journey so far, our client is excited to continue the adventure in Hamburg; building a team and culture that they continue to be proud of.

Profil

OUR IDEAL CANDIDATE

This is not a typical sales job in a typical FMCG company; as well as the basics, you will need to possess a unique blend of skills.
The role calls for an entrepreneurial, creative, passionate, self-starting, flexible and results-driven commercial superstar with a
passion for selling, an eye for the numbers detail and the focus to drive the profitable growth of our key accounts.

-You’ll be at home being a trailblazer – trying things others haven’t tried before and quickly analysing
whether they’ve worked.
-You’ll want to change the world for the better…and have the unwavering belief that you can
-You’ll be great at building relationships and establishing great ways of working with your customers
-You’re resilient and confident, with great influencing and negotiating skills
-You’re naturally organised and good at keeping on top of the administrative side of the role
-You’ll inspire your customers with amazing storytelling abilities – and analyse / use market data to drive the growth of our brands
-You’ll have strong commercial and financial acumen and will understand how a P&L works
-Your communication skills mean you’ll be at home living and breathing our brand in front of an audience
-You are a born problem solver and your ‘macgyvering’ skills mean that you’re able to turn your own great ideas (and a small purse!) into exceptional and profitable sales growth.
-You’ll not be comfortable in a bureaucratic ‘ivory tower’ – you’re a self-starter who’s not afraid to get your hands dirty and kick ass fast …
and you’ll have the personality and passion to add to the team vibe in our office (hint: do you like fancy dress, can you catch a frisbee, and could you help mend the coffee machine?)
