About the role
The Account Manager role fits within the Customer Advocate team and works particularly closely with the Customer Experience Manager on key accounts. This Customer Advocate (as we call this person at Mimecast), will manage a base of customer accounts across various industries. The core focus of the role is to manage the needs of different audiences in your customers – from the IT Director to the Finance Clerk, whilst having a strategic view of your client base in order to drive up satisfaction and work towards 100% retention. The ideal candidate must be an experienced and mature individual capable of empathy but also capable of decisive and assertive action where required. We are looking for a people person with excellent communication skills and attention to detail, which includes some project management and organizational skills in order to help run large deployment projects into your key accounts. This would require management of multiple stakeholders across our business and that of the customer, so needs an individual who is very structured and focused in working towards deliverables and deadlines. Commercial acumen and negotiation skills will be a key success factor in the role as well. Furthermore, they must have a broad range of current and relevant industry knowledge gained through extensive account management experience with the ICT sector. You must thrive in a fast paced, agile but well-structured sales environment that is regularly reinventing itself and have the ability to work well with other team members across a range of functions in order to drive the best experience and result for your customers. This role focuses on customer enablement and delight – with the aim to grow our base into advocates who would love to recommend us to anyone else. It is a strongly relationship focused role – both with customers and with other team members, particularly within Sales.
Who we are looking for:
A dynamic and energetic person with a passion for delighting customers. This person must be structured, organized and reliable at all levels, always delivering on their promises and meeting deadlines being a part of their DNA. They must be flexible, adaptable and able to work under pressure from all areas while producing high quality work that conforms to the demands of a key customer base with extremely high standards and expectations. We are looking for a self-starter with the ability to work independently, yet able to account for their activity.
