Looking for something different? This is a rare opportunity to spread your research wings in an entrepreneurial, and growing data business which has a unique positioning within the global fintech space. Our client position themselves as the global leader in providing the industry standard for global payments data. They have an amazing client list, working with leading financial institutions and technology giants to provide highly regarded data and market intelligence.
Forward thinking and technology driven, using their bespoke platform suite they source, capture and deliver data from their ‘panel’ of respondents/interviewers in 100+ countries across the globe, providing their clients with real-time market insight/data and competitive intelligence (through dashboards and portals) which enables their clients to make significant strategic decisions.
Having carved out an extremely successful niche, and with business growing significantly, they now have an opportunity for an Account Director in their London office – this is their first AD role, so a great opportunity to really make your mark.
Managing a portfolio of hugely successful businesses from the financial services sector (and beyond) you will have responsibility for these clients with two thirds of your time focused on managing and growing these significant accounts, and the reminder of your time spent engaging in strategic pre-sales calls with potential new clients .
This is not a sales role – and our client is really clear about this – what they are looking for is a switched-on AD from the FS space who can have strategic, high quality and sophisticated conversations with their clients.
Typically, you will be liaising with Product, Strategy and Data Directors, and conversations might be around how to get the most out of the data and products provided, to scoping out opportunities to grow business with existing clients, or having strategic input into pre-sales conversations, and onboarding new clients.
With sales cycles typically 6 – 12 months, this is about being credible, relationship led and consultative. You will need to be comfortable with data – not in terms of analysis but from an account management perspective – and we need experience in the FS Sector – this might be from an FS business, research agency or SaaS/data led agency.
This is a new, exciting and unique role in a tech business which is growing significantly, and where there is real scope to make a significant impact. Reporting to the Founder who is a real entrepreneur and inspiration – access, exposure and visibility to senior level clients make this a super exciting opportunity.
