Ever wondered what sales feels like in fast, disruptive, growing digital start-ups?
- Have you always wanted to join the fastest moving, most exciting business environments in the world?
- Are you curious, always?
- Do you wish you could get the excitement of start-ups but keep the stability of corporate life?
If so, we would love to hear from you!
Having a 21-year track record building, growing and exiting businesses has left us clear on what’s needed to be successful in the UK (and now global) start up scene. We know that having great products isn’t even half the story. We know that bullet proof code only gets you so far. We know that slick, efficient and lean businesses are only as powerful as their weakest link. Our experience has taught us that of all the teams we’ve ever built, the one that we must get right is sales – we want to redefine the value of what world-class commercial talent means to a digital start up.
With very ambitious growth plans, Blenheim Chalcot has a range of exciting commercial roles open for high performers. These are permanent positions, typically representing consultative B2B sales opportunities working either for Blenheim Chalcot or within one of our digital ventures. Our ventures are at the forefront of a multitude of industries including FinTech, EdTech, Media and Sports, all benefiting from Blenheim Chalcot’s wealth of knowledge, experience and years of success in growing businesses.
Blenheim Chalcot is the UK’s leading digital venture builder. We build tech start-ups that disrupt and transform sectors. We invest more than just funds, we invest our knowledge and experience, our ideas and our infrastructure. Our portfolio represents sales of over £300 million, £850 million of assets under management, with more than 3,000 employees and a successful track record of over 40 companies. We currently have a cross-sector portfolio of over 20 companies, based in our offices across London, Nottingham, New York and Mumbai. We offer the energy, intellectual challenge and excitement of start-up life, with the stimulating and supportive environment of a large business.
What We’re Seeking
Here at Blenheim Chalcot we’re on the look-out for inspiring individuals that are committed to growth. We are looking to bring onboard outgoing self-starters who are forward thinking, ready to make a very deliberate next move in their career, and know what it’s like to re-set records. We want people who think it’ll be better if they set their own (higher) targets. Our portfolio ranges from companies that are brand new, to those that are in extreme scale-up or hunting for a sustainable pattern of growth. Each need different “types” of sales but all of them, without exception, will continue to have sales needs both today and tomorrow.
That’s where you come in. Do you work in a job that comes with a target? If yes, then yes, this applies to you.
Are you someone who:
- Has worked in targeted sales roles their whole career?
- Takes huge pleasure in winning new business, working existing accounts or managing commercial partnerships?
- Has always been able to ‘read rooms’? Pitch things in just the right way and land ideas?
- Gives it a go before making up their mind?
- Believes, within reason, that anything is possible?
- Delivers ideas to sceptics and helps them see an alternative?
- Been the translator between someone trying to explain it and someone who doesn’t get it?
- Thinks about how things make money and how much money they make?
We have a rigorous recruitment process which we follow for every role to ensure we attract the very best talent. First stage is with us, Blenheim Chalcot, and we will then discuss your next stage with one of our portfolio ventures.
We’ve been building businesses for so long, we know what it takes and how tough it can be. If you think you have what it takes...we want to hear from you!
