Sales Executive

full-time Elder London

About us

Elder is the 5th fastest growing tech startup in the UK. We are a fast-paced, young and dynamic technology company based in the heart of one of Europes hottest tech scenes, Old Street.

We have carefully crafted our team from outstanding businesses (Google, Uber, Graze, Unilever, Just-Eat) to build a service that will redefine what it means to age whilst also changing the world for the better!

About the role

One of the key ingredients to our rapid growth has been the consultative way in which we advise our customers as they are onboard. No two cases are the same and all require a smart mind to keep up and to adapt.

All enquiries are warm and inbound and your job will be to guide them through their options and help them select what works best for them. The Elder way is strictly no cold calling and no hard ‘selling’.

Our method for new business encourages you to build relationships based on mutual respect and understanding. We take time to analyse our customers’ mindsets and their wider socio-political and economic context to help them to really consider all the options in front of them.

What You’ll Be Responsible For…

As a sales executive at Elder, you will be dealing directly with families that are enquiring about our service. You will be digging deep to empathetically understand their situation and then using those details to intelligently present Elder as a proposition that fits their requirements. . . . only ‘if’ it fits their requirements.

An analytical and fiercely driven spirit is essential in this role and those who have it will be given ample scope to take control and really shape the future of the business.

Examples of job responsibilities will include, but won’t be limited to:

  • Consulting inbound customers through their decision-making process
  • Managing a large pipeline of enquiries at differing stages in their purchasing journey
  • Maintaining data integrity using Salesforce.com
  • Achieving monthly KPI’s
  • You’re highly driven with an execution focus, a strong sense of urgency and a belief in our Mission
  • You are meticulously well planned and understand how vital this is to execute on a plan
  • You have a track record in successfully achieving KPI’s
  • You love tackling the most difficult of challenges and know how to get the best solution
  • You deliver customer support like you expect to receive it – with excellence
  • Energy, positivity and enthusiasm are your hallmarks. You think out-of-the-box and wow people with your interesting angles and quality work

We’re a service business and we know that without the best people, we cannot build the best company which is why we treat our team very well. We can offer:

  • Competitive Salary + commission
  • Stock Options (We are post-series A & backed by some of the best VC’s in Europe)
  • 25 days holiday + bank holiday
  • Macbook + any particular extras you require
  • Employee Perks - a range of benefits, discounts, team socials and lunches
  • Join a team who value growth, effort, bold bets and having fun!
  • Mentoring program to help you achieve your personal and career goals

Please be aware that we only very occasionally work with agency partners, and only on a role-by-role basis. This ensures that we can provide that agency partner with all the information and tools they need to be successful in supporting us!

We only accept CVs that are submitted via our ATS, Workable. Speculative CVs sent via email will not be considered liable for a fee.
