About you

What is important to us is that you have a proven background in sales/business development with a natural flair and desire to deliver (and exceed) results, building long lasting relationships with customers and colleagues alike. 

If you have operated in the point of sale or retail finance space then great, however this is not essential. You will, however, need to be comfortable in operating in a regulated environment, therefore a background in consumer credit/lending would be advantageous.

What is equally important is that you thrive working in a KPI driven environment, with a proven ability for developing business within a targeted market sector, having previously negotiated deals with different types of businesses. Your communication and influencing skills will need to be engaging, with the ability to adapt your style to your audience.
