Your Opportunity

Sales Development is a tough job that we highly value at Safeture, and our future Sales Development Representatives (SDRs) need an amazing Manager and coach to help support their goals.

You will play a big part in the recruitment process of which SDRs to employ for the Benelux market, DACH market and UK&I market. Training, motivating, supporting and assessing the performance of each SDR is key for this role. Since Sales Development is a new team, you will also evaluate and adjust new processes, KPIs, tools and technologies to increase productivity and performance within the team.

Analyze and report on inbound leads, outbound activities and number of new business opportunities generated by the SDRs every month


Jump in to help and support the Sales Development team as and when needed (especially before the team is complete), from processing leads to calling a potential customer.
