VACANT POSITION: SALES EXECUTIVE BALL IN TRANSLATIONS
We are leaning towards hiring a candidate for the Sales Executive position at Ball In Translations with experience from competing in team sport on a fairly high level, and the reasons for this are:
♣ We believe that competing in a team sport will often have developed imperative team working and interpersonal skills at a candidate which will make them more efficient at sales.
APPLY ON LINKED IN HERE BY 8TH JANUARY.
♣ The candidate will already have an established network within the sports sector. “A foot inside the door” is often what makes or breaks the success of a sales person.
Some of the highlights of this Sales Executive job:
♣ Travel the world on company dollars, attending conferences and arranging events like football cups and social gatherings.
♣ Freedom of working from wherever you want when you are not needed in a particular place, as long as results are delivered.
♣ The salary is partly fixed and partly commission based, and the fact that you will be the first person to sell a very specialised service will make the job much easier (although it will be hard work for sure!).
To get a visual idea of what you will be selling check out this video that we made before we went to Euro 16 in France as Iceland supporters.

♣ Carry out industry research to target potential clients
