About this awesome role

Having grown quickly over the last 2 years, we are now investing heavily in our Customer Success Team.  As a Customer Success Manager you will be instrumental in identifying how Raising IT can help our clients get the most value possible out of their relationship with us and in turn, converting that into retention and upsells.   Working closely with the VP of Customer Success, you'll be responsible for the success of a group of our clients, and for identifying and implementing scalable and repeatable ways to increase the impact they can achieve using our product. The role will be a commission-based role and you will be targeted on the number of retentions and upsells achieved.

What you'll be doing

    • Developing and growing relationships with all assigned clients, helping them to get the most from the platform
    • Negotiating contract renewals, and demonstrating value of additional products and services to clients with the objective of maximising retention and upsells
    • Demoing product features and creatively solving platform issues so that clients can generate additional value
    • Development of new playbooks and strategies for our CS team
    • Analysis of the performance of your client portfolio, to decide which of your clients need what help, when and how to deliver that support
    • Depending upon your experience, developing and delivering marketing campaigns in collaboration with or for clients
    • Working with other teams in Raising IT to support your clients with their wider digital marketing needs, including support, strategy and other marketing services teams
    • Assisting the VP of Customer Success and the rest of the team in improving our client offering

What we're looking for

    • High levels of emotional intelligence are critical for this role - we’ll want you to be able to empathise with our client’s situations and experiences; rapidly build strong relationships with them, even if using technology for contact; be able to diffuse difficult situations; all while having a kindness in your communications that shows patience and optimism
    • You have significant experience in a customer-facing role, ideally in a Customer Success team within a SaaS environment
    • You have high levels of commercial acumen that allow you to translate relationships into concrete retentions and upsells
    • You need to be able to thrive and be resilient under pressure, whilst dealing with multiple competing priorities and demanding clients
    • You have an entrepreneurial and ownership mindset and get a buzz from delivering value for our clients and for Raising IT
    • You have great organisational skills and you’re a proven achiever who can get things done autonomously; you’ll also value the efficiency that comes from processes and use of technology to manage relationships
    • You have excellent communication skills, both verbal and written and the ability to apply different styles to different situations - particularly you need to be able to explain technical solutions to non-technical individuals
    • You care about charities and can demonstrate this in your application and interview
    • You may have experience within a digital marketing and website development environment, and if not you can demonstrate a passion for learning about the wider digital world and how this can help our clients.
