What does a Head of Sales do?

We’re leading a change in cyber security.  Safeguarding people and businesses from threats online.  As head of our US sales team, you’re here to help us fight the good fight – and power us forward in that market.

What we ask of our Head of Sales

There are things we ask of everyone who works with us, and some that are specific to each role.  Here’s what we need from our Head of Sales. 

Own and drive growth
Set and meet right-up-there sales targets, then raise your sights higher for yourself and your team: aiming to exceed them five times over.  Hone clear sales objective that reflect each clients business and feed insights back to R&D, product and marketing – to steer the development of what we offer now and in the future.

Open strong, close strong (and nail everything in between)
Stay on top of every stage of the highly consultative, complex sales cycle – from generating leads to closing deals.  Spot serious contenders a from a mile off and know what it takes to see the sale through.  Develop and adapt your commercial strategies and manage change when needed.  Doing it all with integrity.

Build relationships that last
Keep your network live and kicking.  Engage clients.  Empathise with them.  Be compelling storytellers who reads a situation clearly and tailors our products and services to their individual needs.  That’s what it takes to turn a prospective lead into a solid contract – one that could flourish far beyond the original concept.

Lead the way to success
Grow, organise and a manage a team built for success.  Stay hands on, interacting at every level and creating a culture aligned to the way we work at Nominet.  Be motivated and work independently, keeping all your plates spinning fast and efficiently – nothing inspires and galvanises the people around you more.

The skills and experience they bring…

Your track record in sales speaks for itself: your mastery of the complete sales cycle, particularly in cyber security, is second to none.  And you’ve achieved international success in landing and expanding big deals. 

You have a way with words – the spoken and the written – and are at total ease with social media, understanding the ins and outs of the online world, and adept at the art of marketing and selling socially.
