You will be responsible for creating and delivering the plans to achieve and exceed the targets set, with your team.

Analytical and process-driven

You will be dealing with information from very many sources and will be required to analyse the information in a detailed way to gain insight into performance challenges and should be able to use the insight to decide on appropriate actions to ensure your team members achieve their KPI’s, sales forecast and work plans. This will include agreeing actions with other relevant departments to close any gaps and maximise any sales and revenue opportunities.

Pipeline management skills

You will need to manage your team’s pipeline to ensure that it is sufficient to meet the relevant targets, is moving at the right pace and is accurate in terms of sales stage, dates of actions and likely closure. Where the pipeline is not in the right shape, you will take action to correct this and ensure it gets back on track in a timely manner. Your pipeline will be an accurate reflection of your sales forecast at any given time.

Coaching adaptability

You understand that there is a diverse range of selling styles by which salespeople can achieve success and will be responsible for adapting your development and coaching styles to suit each individual team member.

You are responsible for ensuring these are followed by every member of your team, including the correct use of CRM systems, proposal documents and the tools and systems provided to enable your team to operate effectively.

You will use account plans to prioritise opportunities, marketing support and team efforts to drive the growth you are tasked with delivering each financial period.

Performance Management

Ongoing monitoring of KPI’s, pipeline progression and sales rep activity, may result in the need for corrective actions and support from you, ultimately resulting in performance management from time to time. You will be responsible for managing performance though clear development plans & PIP’s, including documented meetings and agreed outcomes, with firm and decisive actions being taken to address poor performance in any team member.
