Account Manager – Business Development

Got drive? You’ll fit right in.

In 1997 we tried something new – we’ve been doing it ever since. From humble start-up beginnings, today we’re an ASX top 100 with world-class technology and advertising solutions. Not only are we the largest online automotive, motorcycle and marine classifieds business in Australia, we’re growing across Latin America and Asia.

The role

We’re on the hunt for a proactive and energetic Key Account Manager to join our Corporate Industry and Leisure (CIL) team. Put simply, our CIL team look after “anything that isn’t cars” – bikes, boats, caravans, finance, insurance, aftersales and whatever else comes to mind. You’ll be building relationships with our current clients as well as developing and fostering relationships with new contacts. If you’re results driven, we need you to come in and take responsibility for growing business across CIL. You’ll be growing revenue through business development, managing pipelines, account management and development.

What you’ll do
*Support the growth of revenue across the CIL area. You’ll be generating and cultivating new business leads and opportunities. You’ll build and manage pipelines for potential business prospects and develop a clear plan for continuous and sustainable growth.
*Manage relationships with our key media agencies but also going out and building relationships with new agencies and clients direct. You’ll be the key point of contact for any marketing and advertising needs. You’ll be meeting with clients to discuss new opportunities, products, marketing and advertising.
*Influencing clients to understand the role we play in the car buying journey and what we can provide for them.
*Gather data, insights, results and anything else you need to create engaging and moving presentations to be delivered to prospective and current clients.
*Coordinate all elements of campaigns to ensure that every client’s campaign is delivered to the best of its ability and that all advertiser expectations are met.
*Work with our other internal teams to respond to briefs but also come up with proactive solutions for our clients.

What we’re looking for
*An experienced and commercially sharp media or finance & insurance sales expert. You’ll come with a track record smashing targets and a strong understanding of Digital, Agency and/or Media. An interest or experience in a similar industry would be great, but isn’t a must have.
*A can-do, proactive work ethic and a results driven mindset – you’ll be a self-starter with the hustle to kick down the door, hit the ground running and do whatever it takes to get the job done!
*A confident communicator who can build sustainable relationships with internal and external stakeholders. Developed relationships with top tier media agencies will be highly sought after.
*An articulate communicator (both on paper and in person) who can create and deliver engaging and influential presentations to variety of audiences on all levels.
*A lover of all things tech – you may not be a total ‘tech-spert’ but you’re comfortable using technology and online systems.
*Excellent attention to detail with exemplary time management & organisational skills.
