About you – your background
To be successful in the role, it is
important that you are an experienced, motivating and results-oriented leader
with a strong managerial and empathetic mindset. This includes that you are adaptable,
structured, and proactive, and that you take the lead to get your
colleagues on board. VELTUFF are a growing company, where there are changing
and challenging tasks, and it is therefore important that you are flexible and
good at keeping an overview in a busy everyday life. You have documented
experience from sales management on a European/international level. Furthermore:
- You have experience with professional and
structured sales management of a competent sales organization where the
emphasis in management is on leadership more than management. We expect you to
have managed a sales organization of 10+ employees, and that you have
experience with international sales and preferably remote management.
- Your educational background is not decisive –
if it matches your personality. Industry knowledge will be an advantage, but
not a prerequisite for filling the job. The most important thing is that you
possess the important and right "sales gene", have a lot of positive
energy, and are hungry in a sales perspective.
- You have proven sales records and know what
it takes to close an order for a larger double-digit million amount.
- You must be a winner. You have in-depth
knowledge of sales and experience in "closing a sale", and as a
person you are motivated by creating good results and getting the order home
from the customer.
- You are independent and self-driven and
have opinions and want/dare to make decisions.
- By nature, you are inquisitive and
curious, and you take the required deep dives to understand the context of the
business and the needs of the customers.
- You can create good relationships with the
customer, you are committed and have a high drive and a positive contagious
- You are structured, analytically strong,
look holistically at problems and opportunities and argue based on facts, and are keen on IT and details.
- As a manager, you are value- and
trust-based and focus on your team both thriving and performing.
- You are a strong communicator – in several
languages in writing as well as speaking. In addition to English at a very
high level, it would be an advantage to be able to speak German and perhaps
- Personality is everything!
- You are willing to travel approximately 5-10
days a month.
You will be employed in an international
company with good opportunities for personal and professional development and
independent work areas. The tone is informal,
and we are a house with many different types of people and there is a short
distance between employees and management.
Interested? - We are looking
forward hearing from you. We review applications continuously, so send us yours as soon as possible
so that you are sure to be considered.
