Application for the 5th onboarding of our Sales Management Academy is now open!
Looking for an opportunity to start your professional career in international and fast-growing company?
We are starting the 5th onboarding for the Sales Management Academy Program in the summer of 2021 in Stockholm, Helsinki and Amsterdam.
The Sales Management Academy provides full time employment with extensive sales training and works towards a managerial role.
This is an exceptional opportunity for a career-focused graduate! The Academy program will start locally and, if the COVID-19 measures allow it, you can participate in an international 3-6 months office exchange with one of our European locations.
The Academy Program consists of 3 modules:
- Customer Delivery – working on an event for one full cycle, 9 months. During this phase, you are in touch with top decision makers to consult them and match them to our inspiring (virtual) conferences.
- The next step is the Customer Success team – for three months. Here you will learn the first steps towards selling our business matchmaking concept through which solution providers will effectively find potential customers.
- Last but not least; the Sales Manager role. After finishing the first 9-12 months of the academy, you will learn more about prospecting and negotiation so you can develop into a fully fledged sales manager. During this phase you will take bigger responsibilities and the aim is to have you to attend our Management Events Leadership Academy.
