Account Executive

You will be working for Yelp as Account Executive

Yelp, the online city guide that connects people with great local businesses, is looking to hire account executives to join its fast growing sales team in London in early February 2013.

Account Executives sell online local advertising space to business owners in London and throughout the UK. If you’re a brave leader who’s passionate about local businesses, online advertising, and looking for a uniquely rewarding inside-sales development programme, then we’re the place for you. Our ‘Account Executives’ work hard and play hard!

As part of our team you’ll:

Make a high volume (80+) of outbound sales calls to a variety of local business owners daily
Manage your own leads and drive the full sales cycle from prospecting to closing deals
Educate your clients on the power of online advertising with Yelp, and the impact we’re having on their business already
Make your local business clients more successful with the most effective online advertising programme available
We offer our employees competitive, yet consistent compensation not normally associated with sales positions. With a stable base salary, you won’t stress about your income fluctuating each month. We’ve crafted our sales development programme as a two-year crash course in sales and online advertising. This is a structured professional development programme that provides a clear path to increased responsibility, a better title, and of course, more money!

Think you have what it takes? Well, here’s what we’re looking for in promising applicants:

Minimum of 1-3 years experience in sales (will consider recent grads with transferable skills)
An entrepreneurial spirit, our account executives are hard-working, self-motivated & confident, you should be too.
A passion for sales, social networking, local search, online advertising and helping local businesses succeed online.
A quick learner, we’ve crafted a 2-year crash training course in sales and online advertising.
University degree
Exceptional phone skills and professionalism
Strong work ethic
Great attitude & passion for what we’re doing as a company
Strong preference for candidates who have work authorisation.

This is a highly competitive hiring process, so include both a cover letter and CV that illustrates your qualifications and interest in us. Also please provide a link to your (full and interesting) Yelp profile – this is your chance to give a sneaky peek of your dazzling personality!
