TOPdesk are looking for a motivated, ambitious graduate to join our sales team in London!

Founded in Delft, the Netherlands, over 25 years ago by 2 students, TOPdesk provides a Service Management solution designed to help others improve their customer service.

Not quite sure what Service Management is? It’s the science behind every step of customer service. When you work in Service Management you help organisations take care of their customers. From the technology they use, to the processes and people involved, you digitally transform their way of working.

What are you going to do?

As a member of the Business Development team, you will be responsible for building a vast and valuable network of IT executives and professionals from a variety of industries, whilst nurturing new business leads and qualifying their ongoing projects.

You will be the first point of contact with our potential clients, so it’s important that you have a passion for sales, the ability to build relationships, and are motivated by hitting targets. You’ll be building up the pipeline by sourcing using a variety of channels, but also nurturing and developing prospects until they’re ready to speak with our Senior Business Development Executives. You will also have opportunities to join us at key tradeshows and events, and as you progress, you’ll have further opportunities to join meetings and product demonstrations further down the sales pipeline.

You will have a deep understanding of TOPdesk to help fuel your conversations, so staying up to date on market trends, competitors, and what TOPdesk is doing plays a vital role in this job.

Your team

Much like the wider TOPdesk team, our team of BDE’s are spread across our offices in Manchester and London. They work closely alongside each other, as well as our Lead Generation and Senior Business Development Executives teams as part of the TOPdesk sales cycle. You’ll also join over 1000 TOPdesk employees worldwide, all with unique and individual knowledge that you can utilise.

Are you our new Business Development Executive?

  • Resilient, with excellent telephone manner and communication skills
  • A self-starter: great initiative, self-motivation, and creativity with the ability to work both independently and in a team
  • Target/objective-orientated with the ability to set and work towards your own Key Performance Indicators
