Strategic Sales Executive
Are you motivated to join a scaling and growing tech-company with an ambitious team of colleagues?
Are you triggered by words such as recruitment, corporates, digitalization, global and sales?
If the answer is yes, then let`s grab a digital coffee and talk. We believe that much more can be said by talking than what can be written in a job advert.
Welcome to Highered – Who are we?
We assist brand powerhouses of the world building their brand and recruiting students from top accredited schools worldwide. The journey so far has been exciting to say the least, but we expect the journey ahead to be even more exciting. And one of the reasons for this? We are fortunate enough to be working with companies from all sectors worldwide such as AB InBev - the world's largest brewer, PepsiCo, Mars, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Google, HP, and many more.
Covid-19 has changed how companies recruit from campus forever and made the offering even more relevant and attractive. The Highered platform is used by students at leading schools world-wide. The platform has become a digital gateway to the largest global ecosystem of talent, all from top accredited international schools and institutions. Additionally, we support companies with digital campus activities.
The job of Strategic Sales Executive
This is a role that is critical in relation to the future growth of our business, and together with our CXO you will be driving solution sales on a global scale. Primarily you will be putting forward our solutions to big Corporates, but to some extent also towards some of the leading Universities and Business Schools across the globe. Our platform is offered “as a service” on annual agreements and you will be working with new sales and developing selected existing accounts in addition to your own.
You are also comfortable with cold outreach and a master (contributor) to lead generation tactics as well as influencing business development and pricing.
What can we tempt you with?
Hopefully, the idea itself and the global aspects of things will trigger you, not least the opportunity to work with big corporates and some of the finest education institutions in the world. We also like to think that it would be motivating to join a scaling and growing tech-company with an ambitious team of colleagues, working remotely and on premise. Perhaps as important, you will get the opportunity to work within a multi-cultural team, all passionate about taking our solutions out to the world. We also dare to say we have Oslo`s best offices (you will see for yourself), but office or no office; our staff are entitled to work from anywhere. Finally; you get the opportunity to join our employee shareholder program.
And of course: We give you a day off on your Birthday!
Other things that may tempt you into speaking to us; We sit in an eco-system of startups and scaleups near Frognerparken (Skøyen side), we have Founders who previously have built successful companies and we like to think we are friendly and down to earth. And of course; we offer competitive salary and benefits.
Who are we looking for?
You have successfully held positions selling products or services to corporates and you have worked with clients in multiple markets and levels. If you have experience from Saas solutions and / or from a position with HR, Employer Branding and Talent Acquisition as the target group, then even better.
Educational background is not important, but you have at least one passion that gives you energy. What is it?
It goes without saying that we need someone with great communication skills and who can build trust with people at all levels. Hopefully you have an active lifestyle as this will go well with our focus on encouraging work-life balance.
We want to make the process as smooth and easy for you as possible. Ultimately, it is our job to ensure you get as good insight into the company as possible.
