My client is an ASX-listed supplier of next generation IT, cloud and telephony services.   With company values focused on straight talking, over achievement and having fun along the way, they are one of the few providers in the market that offer a full suite of IT and telecommunications products, services and support.   Their solution stack consists of products, services and support including, NBN, Business Ethernet, IP voice services, fixed voice, mobile, connectivity, cloud, managed IT services, and hosted collaboration, Network as a Service (NaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS).   You could say it is one helluva success story.  And now you can be part of it and create your career path with a true innovator! 

About the New Business Manager role 

With a robust plan in place to achieve rapid sales growth, they now seek a high calibre New Business Manager to join the Victorian team. With a commitment to fostering long-term commercial partnerships with next-gen service providers, my client firmly believe they are only as good as the talent they develop.    Yes, they want sales super stars, but more importantly, they want leaders of tomorrow who can challenge the leaders of today.  Reporting directly to the State Manager, the New Business Manager (Indirect) will be responsible for prospecting, developing, and onboarding quality new business leads within the wholesale/dealer channel.  You will have access to a CRM system, direct marketing, and inbound leads, so you don't need to feel like you are all alone in the wilderness.  That being said, they are not the type of organisation that sit back and wait for success to just happen, they get out there and chase it.  So for the successful candidate, your level of tenacity and professionalism needs to match that of the business.
