Overview of role

  • The day-to-day activities of account executives are 90% calling on our Clients’ accounts to make cold, but relevant, offerings of sales-meetings, on behalf of our clients’ sales team to then “close the deal”;  We call to ask qualifying questions (The business need,  budget, timescale of project go-ahead – who is involved etc) and if all those are as needed, a meeting generally follows.

  • Conduct telemarketing calls to the required standard of accuracy and professionalism – checking spelling of contact details, ensuring email addresses are correct narrative notes are grammatically correct and the content is spelled and punctuated properly.
  • We meet realistic targets, maintain Service Levels and ensure Key Performance Indicators are met.
  • Keep the telemarketing databases, used for Client accounts, up-to-date and GDPR-Compliant

Specific job role

  • Generate quality leads and appointments that provide genuine opportunities for our Clients to win business from, and in-line with the criteria set by the Client
  • Have 'intelligent’ telemarketing skills, including being able to identify new opportunities and take appropriate action if the campaign is not going to plan.
  • Continuously improve own telemarketing performance, and keep up to date with all Account details
  • Effectively manage call-backs and pipelines
  • Ability to listen and absorb information that will influence the outcome of the call
  • Develop personal strategies to ensure that all tasks are completed in a methodical and accurate manner, in line with any deadlines set
  • We take responsibility for achieving the targets – so we want someone who takes ownership of the Client calls and outcomes. 
  • Take responsibility for monitoring other members of staff when they work on “their” Accounts, including giving feedback and monitoring call rates and results to achieve maximum productivity
  • Work at the necessary pace to achieve daily targets on all telemarketing projects
  • Accurately input, access, manipulate and report on data in Prospect Research and Client CRM systems
