Graduate Sales Executive

The Pareto Effect: Matching you with the brightest graduate jobs.

Whatever the industry, product or service, every organisation needs to sell their wares in order to survive and thrive. The Sales Executive is that valuable link between the customer or client and the organisation, playing one of the most central roles for business success. If you enjoy the buzz and competition of pursuing a lead, chasing opportunities, engaging with decision-makers and the thrill of closing a sale, the role of Graduate Sales Executive is dynamic, fast-paced and perfect for you.

What's involved?

A Sales Executive position will take your career beyond the boundaries of the 9-5 and office cubicle, so a willingness to be flexible and embrace challenges is essential. You will be expected to gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of your product portfolio before pitching solutions to prospective clients and customers. Time on the phone and out on the road is usually expected, so the ability to engage with a variety of personalities is essential.

Knowing your customer is a powerful tool in the world of sales so when you aren’t proactively engaging with your prospects, time is typically spent gaining an understanding and background to your potential sales opportunities, qualifying leads and building a bigger picture in order to deliver the best possible solution. The capacity to identify with your customer or client and adapt your pitch to each individual is essential.

The challenge of meeting targets means your days tend to be busy, engaging with all stages of the sales cycle. From visiting potential customers to negotiating terms and identifying new opportunities, you can be confident of a career that will keep you motivated and driven at every stage

What do I need?

Sales Executives are typically selected based on their core competencies and potential over academic background. To fly to the top of the career ladder in this branch of sales, you will need:

  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Confidence
  • Resilience and determination to succeed
  • Self-motivation and drive
  • A degree of competitiveness
  • Flexibility and a willingness to work outside the standard 9-5
 

What’s in it for me?

Sales Executive roles tend to reap the rewards of their hard work with some of the most lucrative packages in the sales industry. Fundamentally, you get out what you put in. For those willing to put in the work, you will enjoy:

  • Commission-based pay, with highly competitive starting salaries and bonuses
  • Networking and travel to visit clients
  • Lucrative progression opportunities, with chances to move into all areas of business

If you think you have what it takes to break into the world of Sales, a role as a Graduate Sales Executive will give you the perfect platform from which to launch a long-term and rewarding career.
