Description

VouchedFor is poised to scale up as the “Trustpilot for professional services”.

People need to know who they can trust at key points in their life, whether they need advice on their finances, legal matters, property or their mental health. We’re already helping millions get the expert help they need but we’re on a mission to help millions more.

We’re backed by great investors whose successes include Octopus Energy, eBay and Zoopla. We’ve grown rapidly since launching in 2012 and we’ve hit a slipstream recently, with our membership up 40% over the last 12 months.

Our talented, friendly team is at the heart of our achievements. We are looking for a brilliant commercial leader to join us at this super exciting time and help accelerate recent growth.

The role:

  • To build partnerships with the UK's biggest and best professional services firms, helping them demonstrate their trustworthiness.

What's in it for you:

  • The chance to be an innovator; pioneering "mid market" B2B sales and deepening large firm relationships.
  • The chance to enjoy the potential of a start-up/scale-up, combined with the security that comes with established growth and profitability.
  • The opportunity to have a profound impact on people's lives.
  • The chance to work in a business fortunate to be seeing sales growth accelerate through the pandemic (30% membership growth in 2020).

What you’ll be doing:

  • Reporting to the MD, you will use your experience of top-tier business development to build new relationships with large and medium advice firms.
  • You will take an entrepreneurial approach to each relationship to identify and capitalise on new opportunities.
  • You will secure and develop MD-level relationships.
  • You’ll be supported by a dedicated team of Onboarding and Success Managers, helping individual professionals within each firm.
  • You will provide sustained business growth through the partnerships you deliver.

Requirements

About you:

  • A strong background in B2B sales from an FS-related field (big plus points for having worked with financial advisers).
  • Experience of handling sales to enterprise-level accounts.
  • Strong ability to influence multiple senior stakeholders, either directly or indirectly.
  • Proven negotiation skills and ability to spot opportunities.
  • Strong commercial instincts.
  • Experience of delivering sustainable growth plans within a high-growth scale-up.
  • Up-to-date knowledge of the financial services landscape and its evolution.
  • Financially astute, strategic thinker with a naturally warm and friendly approach.
  • Highly developed presentation skills.
  • Determined self-starter with a drive to succeed and deliver.
  • Experience within a SaaS environment is a bonus.
