You’ll be joining a company that’s having a huge impact on people’s lives with a culture where you can be yourself, have fun and progress rapidly.

The Role

Are you an exceptional salesperson who craves a role with meaning and impact?

Join a unique company that combines the excitement and pace of working in a high-growth tech start up with the fulfilment of creating life-changing social impact.

Beam supports homeless people, refugees and prison leavers to access stable employment and their own homes. Our work is only possible because of our partnerships with Local Government, who commission Beam to support local communities.

In this role you will lead the charge in bringing Beam to new areas of the UK, owning your own end-to-end sales process. You’ll need exceptional relationship building skills, commercial acumen and plenty of hustle to design and build bespoke partnerships which are built to last.

Beam has never been needed more, and we have a huge opportunity to work with Local Government partners to change how welfare services are delivered for millions of people.

You’ll be

  • Building new relationships – you’ll hustle to build connections and secure meetings with a broad network of stakeholders, from front line teams to senior leaders
  • Designing new partnerships – building a deep understanding of local need and working closely with our expert internal teams to build tailored proposals

You are

  • A proven salesperson – you have significant experience in commercial roles and have a proven track record of running an end-to-end sales process, closing new customers and meeting revenue goals
  • A natural relationship builder – emotionally intelligent and able to quickly build rapport and establish trust with a wide range of stakeholders
  • Naturally curious – every partnership is unique, and you’ll rarely be pitching “BAU”. You’re able to draw out real insights into what customers need from us
  • An analytical thinker – you’re comfortable making data-driven decisions, whether to manage your own pipeline or to model impact for a customer
  • Results driven – you thrive working towards ambitious individual revenue goals and relish the opportunity to take on new challenges
  • Tenacious and creative – sales always has its ups and downs, but you’re optimistic in the face of challenge, always find a way to maintain momentum

Success looks like

  • You’re hitting and exceeding revenue goals – you are closing new partnerships every month, and have a strong pipeline for the future
  • Our partnerships are built partnerships to last – new partnerships are well designed with strong relationships at multiple levels
  • We’re innovating our service – your insights are unlocking new ways Beam can support people, leading to innovations in our service
