Account Manager New Business – EF Corporate Solutions

We are seeking a B2B Account Manager New Business in Amsterdam to work with large international companies headquartered in the Netherlands – helping them to advance their global strategic objectives by improving their employees' intercultural communication and language skills.

This is a sales hunter and relationship manager position at the same time. This job requires persistence, strategic acumen and creativity, and has huge potential for the right person. You will be a true strategic solutions consultant – helping your prospects address their most significant global challenges around managing and developing talent. In the process, you'll help thousands of professionals enhance their communication skills and gain critical tools for advancing their own career growth.

 What will your goals be?

  • Become quickly recognised by your prospects and customers as a trusted advisor and consultant who can help them reach their business goals through strategic investments in language learning programmes
  • Be recognised and celebrated by our global organisation for delivering your commitments and exceed expectations in terms of sales

 How will we help you succeed? To achieve these ambitious goals, you will:

  • Draw on the best product stack available on the market. We offer premium cutting-edge educational products that you can sell with confidence, including online and (virtual) face-to-face programmes
  • Have a well-designed database of high potential companies to pursue – mainly Fortune 1000 companies across various industries – so you can map and identify new business opportunities in the Netherlands
  • Proactively collaborate with other internal stakeholders to help you drive the sales process forward through high levels of complexity – working closely with your local colleagues in Marketing, Business Development, and Customer Success, and also with your remote colleagues on other teams elsewhere in Europe and across Latin America, the US, the Middle East, and Asia

 Who will succeed in this role?

We are looking for a person with 2+ years of successful B2B solutions selling experience, who speaks at least Dutch and English fluently. If you have experience working with education products and/or HR stakeholders, all the better. But most importantly, we are seeking a hungry, driven, globally oriented salesperson who wants to build a career at a rapidly growing and extremely innovative education and travel company.

 More specifically, you should be able to:

  • Manage complex end-to-end B2B sales processes independently, using a consultative approach and executing needs analyses, value proposition definitions and negotiations with CXO level stakeholders
  • Understand the HR/L&D customer market and bring to bear that knowledge in conversations with C-level executives at large international companies

 Why is this an exciting opportunity?

EF is the world's largest private education company and we are both global and local. In this role, you will learn about trends in business all around the world, while at the same time continuing to build your network and expertise in the Netherlands. We offer the opportunity to be part of a great adventure in a dynamic and entrepreneurial global company that offers extensive career growth opportunities.

EF is both established and entrepreneurial. You will be charged with charting your own path and will be able to draw on resources at a massive scale. We have been in the language business for over 55 years and are over 52,000 employees strong, with offices and schools in 115 countries.

E-learning is a rapidly growing industry that is being disrupted by exciting innovations in training delivery. Growing your expertise in this area will position you well for future growth. To stay up to speed, our team regularly attends conferences and events to learn about key trends and best practices in the business, so we can serve our clients effectively.
