Sales Development Executive
Do You Want To Help Create Social Change Whilst Building A High-Flying Commercial Career?
Raising IT (soon re-branding to 'Joyful' for international roll out) is the UK’s leading web platform for non-profits, powering the websites of over 600 charities and giving them the digital tools to drive successful fundraising campaigns. We have a track record of raising millions of pounds for our clients and creating a transformative impact in the charity sector. We are launching in Australia so this is your chance to be part of this new exciting chapter!
We are currently experiencing explosive growth as an organisation and are seeking an ambitious, commercially-minded and high-energy salesperson to help us continue this growth.
This is an entry level sales role. You could either be someone with a year or more experience in a telephone-based sales role who would like to move into a more socially motivated role or an ambitious graduate looking to kickstart their career at a social enterprise. In the role, you will be in charge of contacting senior decision-makers at charities in Australia via the telephone with the objective of generating interest in our product offering. You will be targeted on the number of high quality leads you generate for our partnerships team.
The role will be based in our Melbourne CBD location. In addition to a generous base salary, the role will be highly incentivised with commissions related to the number of leads you generate. You will also receive training on all the key areas of becoming a world-class salesperson and opportunities for career progression, with all management positions in the team currently being hired for internally.
The ideal candidate will have the following characteristics:
- At least one year’s sales experience or a graduate degree coupled with high levels of ambition
- - Experience in either the charity sector or selling technology / digital products
- - A determined, self-motivated and commercial mindset
- - Comfortable working in a predominantly telephone-based role
Raising IT (currently rebranding as Joyful) is transforming the way the not-for-profit sector market themselves to increase their income and impact. We’re the largest provider of charity web tools, working with over 500 amazing clients such as Street League, Lepra and Hubbub. We're now launching in new international markets with the first being Australia and we'll be establishing a new office in Melbourne!
We’re a rare breed of company that combines making a massive difference to important causes with being an exciting fast-growth tech company. We’re looking for people to join our caring and passionate team to come on our journey of building a world-changing, world-class company.
Why we should work together
We’re solving a big problem. The nonprofit sector is a multi trillion dollar industry that spends a great deal on old school marketing approaches. We’re working to create systemic change so that more money can be directed to the vital front-line services charities provide.
We’ve grown quickly to become the market leader in the UK, and are uniquely positioned to continue our rapid expansion in Australia. We have all the benefits that come with working at a dynamic tech start-up. We're establishing a great Melbourne CBS location, a vibrant workplace with regular socials, a relaxed and caring atmosphere that puts our staff first and most importantly a knowledge that every day you’re working to make a big difference to important causes we care about.
We are an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.
