Responsibilities: Scotland’s business customers are able to choose their water retailer. Buying decisions are made on the basis of value, customer service and confidence in their supplier and account manager. Our client has been offering retail water services in Scotland since 2008 and in this time they have established a growing and loyal customer base. They have recently been awarded a significant and prestigious contract to provide their services to the Scottish Public Sector.

They are looking for accomplished account managers, based and working in Scotland, to deliver a first class service to their new Public Sector customers.

Their Scottish office is located in Edinburgh, where you will meet regularly with your colleagues and Public Sector customers. With a generous salary you are not commission based, but have up to 15% annual bonus on offer.

Reporting to the Business Development Manager, you will deliver a pro-active account management service across the public sector, conducting regular account meetings, promoting and delivering value add services and ensuring KPI’s are exceeded.

You will be able to work autonomously and as a key member of their public sector and broader teams. By building close working relationships with their public sector customers, you will be responsible for providing advice regarding their water, water recycling, profile and behaviour; assisting them to maximise efficiency and minimise their water and wastewater bills.
