About You

You are a great relationship builder and excellent communicator, responsible for the identification and development of new strategic businesses by promoting and selling the full range of services to new customers. You will have a strategic approach with experience at mapping and targeting a prospective vertical and be able to take advantage of your own existing contact relationships and creating new ones.

You are friendly and approachable as you will be working with other colleagues to achieve and maximise sales targets. You are self-motivated and able to work independently as well so you will have a lot of freedom and flexibility to be inventive and creative.

About the Role

Working in a team environment, you will be growing our customer base at enterprise level, adding new 'logos’ to our client portfolio and exploring new opportunities and tenders. You will be selling complex data solutions, MPLS, Point to Point and dark fibre solutions at a senior level, so experience in the industry is required.

You will be the first point of contact for new client needs, identifying solutions and influencing their strategy to adopt the best products for their business. Through sales calls and onsite visits, you will have frequent opportunities to develop new opportunities.

We’re specialists in delivering market-leading, super-fast and reliable Wi-Fi and technical solutions for students, residential developers and businesses, the three sectors we know inside out. Glide is more than the sum of its parts. We’re a big group with the energy and ingenuity of a small business.

Values

At Glide, brand values aren’t just words on a wall. They are at the heart of our culture and shape how we behave, how we recruit and how we support each other and our customers.

Each value is brought to life through our behaviours. Our behaviours make it clear how to speak to our colleagues and our customers, how we act towards each other and how we define being a ‘Glider’.

Stand Together: Like a family, we value togetherness, put the group before ourselves, welcome diversity and always work hard to make sure everyone feels like they belong.

Act Bravely: We dare to do things a little differently. We believe in each other and inspire the people around us to push themselves out of their comfort zones, to do things with courage and conviction, to grab life by the horns and to have total confidence in themselves.

Care Whole-heartedly: If we fall down on customer experience, nothing else we do matters. That’s because customer loyalty is hard won and easily lost. The difference boils down to caring about the things our customers care about, always taking the time to make life simpler for them, and going out of our way to connect and give them more than they’d expect.

Live Vibrantly: We’re no ordinary company, and our culture reflects that: we believe that having fun, getting on with each other and not taking life too seriously is just as important as working hard.

Be Tenacious: It’s about more than hard work and graft – we never rest on our laurels. We are an unstoppable team that know we can always do better and more than what we achieved last week, month or year.

Think Unconventionally: Staying open-minded, defying predictable ways of doing things, outsmarting the competition and cracking on with enthusiasm and positivity is how we approach everything, every day.
