  • Work in partnership with Sales Enablement to align and evolve sales training for maximum impact throughout your team.

  • Hire and retain exceptional, diverse talent into Attest’s EMEA team and be responsible for creating and maintaining a culture of belonging and inclusion.

  • You have at least 4 years’ experience managing and leading high-performing New Business teams and can leverage experience selling SaaS and/or Enterprise software to the EMEA market.

In-person and remote working balance ...

We are a flexible employer and continue to work with the team on the ground to navigate our way through the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic together.

As a company, we aren’t a fully remote company and place strong emphasis on teams being able to meet, and spend time together in a safe and flexible environment regularly, as well as being able to travel to meet customers when rules and safety considerations permit. We always want to ensure that is balanced against having a healthy approach to flexible working/working from home and nurturing your life outside of work as well as in work.

With that in mind, we have a permanent office location at 25 Holywell Row, London EC2A 4XE**,** London, where our team spend time together on a weekly basis. We don’t set specific rules, but expect folks to spend time with the team in the office on average 3 days per week.
