Are you inspired to work as a Sales Account Manager for a rapidly growing tech company; a company dedicated to enabling and connecting plant lovers with their passion? Not only is this a superb opportunity but it’s also a chance to establish yourself within a UK based tech company. The role will allow a talented Sales Account Manager to own and lead new partnership acquisitions and manage accounts within the Southern Home Counties territory.

Who are we?

We are Candide; a fiercely passionate bunch of people (and plants) bringing exciting and revenue-boosting tech products to independent businesses and enabling plant enthusiasts to connect with their true love. At Candide, we harness data to create new products, drive success and lead the way within the garden tourism sector.
We openly put our people first and pride ourselves on our collaborative and inclusive culture. We love learning together, and we actively encourage everyone to share ideas on how we can improve our processes, growth, and products.

Where are we?

For this role, you will be based from home within the Southern Home Counties and will travel to sites within your territory.
On the whole, we are based from home as well as being lucky enough to have an HQ in the heart of Bristol and offices in London. Candide has a hybrid working model of both office and working from home.

What will you do?

  • You will be Candide’s lead generator by proactively identifying, targeting and selling our ticketing solution into gardens and private estates
  • You will successfully develop, grow and maintain a new business sales plan within the garden tourism sector
  • You will become a brand ambassador and take real pride and responsibility in continually developing Candide as a market leader whilst ensuring ultimate customer satisfaction
  • You will effectively close new business partnerships by forming a deep understanding of requirements and developing a strong value proposition
  • You will identify and meet with key stakeholders and decision-makers to demonstrate the value and positive impact Candide will add to an independent enterprise such as enhancing digital exposure for gardens

What we’d like from you?

  • You will ideally have experience using Salesforce
  • You will be motivated by exceeding KPIs and have a demonstrable track record in doing so
  • You will be customer-oriented and seamlessly adapt your approach to maximise success depending on the audience
  • You will be excited about connecting plant and nature lovers with their passion and ideally have a knowledge of the horticulture industry

What can we do for you?

  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • An extra paid day off to spend amongst plants - what better way to relax?!
  • Regular socials - our team culture is at the heart of everything we do
  • £50 plant budget
  • Your choice of equipment
  • Pre-paid training budget to help you develop professionally
  • Grant of SARs (Stock Appreciation Rights) after two years of employment
  • Flexible working hours (core hours 10 am - 4 pm)
  • Enhanced shared parental leave

Application Process

We believe in keeping things simple. First, we’ll have a 30 minute informal phone call to make sure we’re both on the same page. Then, we’ll move to a 60 minute interview where we’ll deep dive into your skills and experiences. From here we’ll make a swift decision.
