E.ON’s B2B Solutions is an innovative new business function created to help generate more value for new and existing business customers. We have all the dynamism of a start-up, with the backing of a world-leading energy company. And with our extensive support we’re able not only to enter the new solutions market, but also tailor our propositions to suit the needs of our customers.
We’re currently looking for a confident, experienced salesperson to work from home as part of B2B Solutions. As a Key Account Manager here, you’ll look after our medium-to-large corporate clients. You’ll manage the entire sales process for them, from identifying revenue opportunities to contract delivery.
To begin with, you’ll support our overall strategy by targeting quarterly revenue opportunities in your area. Using your knowledge of clients’ previous spending with us, their current financial situation and the wider market, you’ll identify the best opportunities.
Next, you’ll work with your clients’ directors and senior managers to identify their particular needs and drivers. You’ll analyse these and use your extensive product and industry knowledge to develop tailored, targeted solutions for their businesses.
You’ll then manage the sales process through to completion, including relationship development, negotiations and contract delivery. You’ll also lead the sales support processes, including estimations, bid writing and a range of other operations. And throughout all of these processes, you’ll also ensure we’re always adhering to our internal management reporting, authorization and governance guidelines.
As a Key Account Manager here, you won’t just have a significant impact on one of our most exciting new business areas; you’ll also open up exceptional career development opportunities with one of the world’s leading energy suppliers.
