The opportunity…
PleaseCycle is growing exponentially, about to launch new products into the market and has received major funding, as well as expanding globally. We are not simply looking for an Account Manager to sit in the same role for their ‘career’ with us. We want to find an ambitious individual with entrepreneurial flair to create the next product, or enhance the current offering. We need someone who wants the opportunity to get new experiences in a highly entrepreneurial environment, as their desire requires, perhaps moving into new areas with time, such as sales, marketing, to handle some of the finance, manage a small team of account handlers, technical design – as you wish and can prove you have the capability.
Overview The Account Manager will manage the implementation and ongoing support for multiple accounts. The candidate will ensure that utilization of the product is maximized through effectively marketing and liaising with the client and participants.   Background Info An Account Manager is required to join the rapidly growing team at PleaseCycle – a behavioral change specialist utilizing technology to get more people cycling. With a rapidly growing corporate- and public sector client-base, PleaseCycle provides a technology solution which rewards, incentivizes and tracks increases in cycling over the course of the contract.

  • End of event reports – from data gathered throughout the event, using a reporting template, product end of event reports showing the impact of the initiative

Skills and Experience required

  • Presentable and enthusiasm to over-deliver to client expectations
  • Driven individual with a proven track record of picking something up and running with it, creatively defining the solution for an agreeable outcome. There is no ‘right’ way to get the outcome required as every client differs.

  • Able to forge and build relationships at a senior level
  • Experience and desire to work in an unstructured environment without close management where The Directors can trust your autonomy will deliver
