3. Client Relationship Management Skills : Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build and maintain relationships with clients are paramount.

4. Analytical Skills : Data analysis and customer profiling is key to identify trends, preferences and areas for improvement, ultimately enhancing our sales strategy and driving continuous growth.

Ideally, you’ll also have :

  • Experience in carbon removal technologies and innovations within the sustainability space.
  • Strong network and relationships within relevant industries
  • Demonstrated ability to navigate complex sales cycles and influence decision-makers at multiple levels within customer organisations.
