We’re on a mission to become the essential tool for anyone wanting to work with high growth businesses – which, as it turns out, is quite a lot of people! Selling to one industry can be challenging enough, but gets a bit ‘samey’ after a while. Now imagine selling to over 20. We need someone to help us grab the £ millions of untapped value left in these industries. This is the most exciting (and challenging part of this role), so if that's right up your street, read on!
