Backbone Connect are a business built around a successful, focused and fun sales team. We believe that to be successful in the IT industry you have to be smart, disruptive and agile. Our teams are just that. Our growth plans for 2019 include a new intake of ambitious future sales people for our Academy. The Academy is our training ground for the next generation of sales talent to be fast-tracked into our sales team. It provides a 12 month training programme designed to turn ambitious candidates, new to IT and/or sales, into skilled salespeople ready to work in a fast-paced, highly rewarding environment.
As an Academy Business Development Executive (BDE) you’ll be following a comprehensive sales training syllabus, while refining your sales skills in the real world by building a pipeline of prospects with the purpose of generating meetings for our Sales Team. You will be actively engaged in approaching our industry verticals, developing new and exciting customer relationships and generating sales from new business prospects. We are committed to offering our Academy Sales Team the focus and support to enable them target and start conversations with new prospects. Our Sales Academy Programme develops sales people to sell Cloud computing, voice, data and connectivity solutions.
You’ll have the added benefit of powerful sales tools – data-driven marketing campaigns, a sophisticated CRM and powerful lead generation software – to assist as you build a pipeline of consistent and regular monthly team and individual revenue.
Backbone Connect are one of the fastest growing technology companies of our type in the UK. We’ve succeeded in a competitive industry by being different. Different in the way we treat our customers, different in the way we build our culture. Different in the way we recruit for our most important resource, our staff.
We focus on recruiting and developing the best people possible in all positions. Our company culture is to be ‘Better than Best Practise’ in everything we do. This means constantly working to support the growth and development of our staff and ensuring that we are always doing everything possible to provide a fantastic working environment.
So what does that look like to our employees? It means offering competitive employment packages, with benefits that extend beyond everyone else’s ‘standard’ offering. It means being an accredited Investor In People, providing individual training budgets for staff and progression plans that help them build a career, not just a job. It’s offering the little things that make a big difference, like a benefits system that gives staff discounted life essentials such as gym memberships, mobile phone insurance, restaurants and shopping.
