BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER (GERMANY)

OBJECTIVE – WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

You are responsible for carrying out sales activities at prospects and potential new customers, with the aim of generating new business and achieving turnover targets. To achieve your objective, you closely follow our sales principles.

OUR SALES PRINCIPLES

Being Customer Centric
The Customer is in the centre of your everyday work. You build sustainable relationships with them, because we are here for the long run.

Knowing our market
We are working in a fast-changing dynamic market. You make sure to understand the market you are working in – the dynamics, the trends, the power shifts, and the dependencies. When customers speak with you, they need to learn something from you and your conversation

Being Honest
Don’t oversell. Be sure that what you sell can also be delivered. If you are not sure, talk to your colleagues and get an opinion. Of course, this is never black and white – but overselling will kick us out of the market.

Following Up
You make sure to follow up on conversations and due dates you agreed on. Customers need to know that they can rely on the promises you made.

Active listening
It’s not about us, it’s about your customers. Try not just to pitch. Ask questions and listen actively to the answers. Listen and learn.

Knowing our products and services
You will not be successful if you don’t know what you (we) are offering. Make sure you are up to date on the latest developments of our products and services. Seek actively for advice from your colleagues and co-workers on how things are done.

Understanding our value
You are not just selling a product or a service – we are solving problems! Make sure that you understand your customers’ problems and how our value can help them overcome these problems.

Challenging your pitch
There is no perfect pitch in sales. And there is also not a “one fits all” approach. Always challenge your pitch and lock for ways how to optimize it – to maximize your results. Every customer we miss or lose is a customer we can’t help!
