- Your focus will be roughly 80% of your time on new business and 20% will be devoted to maintaining and extending current client relationships.
- It is important that you already have a large network in Dutch market and proven skills to match relevant people and companies with our business. You will use this network and future connections to fill the sales pipeline.
- Reaching out and connecting with new people and new businesses should be something that energizes and motivates you.

Who are we looking for?
Experience means a lot to us, but what we value even more is a fit with our company culture.
Passionate & excellent communicator
You love what you do and you have a passion for business and technology. You are an excellent communicator, who is not only able to talk about what makes Elements unique but is even more capable of asking the right questions and listening actively. It comes natural to you to approach and connect with all kinds of people, always based on genuine interest and authenticity.
Experience in the world of online and in this role
As a digital agency we work with a diverse set of clients, helping them craft stunning and high-quality products. We look for someone, who knows the ins and outs of our business and what it means to sell agile projects. You should have a few years of experience in a comparable role, co-authoring pitches and proposals. Next to this, you know how to keep the business goals of the client in mind while having the team on board to reach the best possible result.
You know an opportunity when you see one
You are able to recognize, find and create opportunities and have a strong drive to turn these into concrete projects. You always strive to understand a client’s brand and business, actively identifying new ways to better service their needs. You know that, in order to find these opportunities, visibility is crucial. You are always enthusiastic to contact new clients, meet them and extend your network.
Proficient in Dutch and English
For this role it is necessary that you speak Dutch on a (near-) native level, but also have excellent English language skills. We have colleagues from more than 20 different countries at Elements, which we believe adds enormous value to our team and work environment. However, your work would largely consist of direct contact with our current and potential clients, which are mostly local Dutch companies.
