Who are we?

With 20 years of experience in the field of online media monitoring, Meltwater is a global leader in media intelligence and social analytics SaaS solutions - helping to bridge the gap between Public Relations, Communications, and Marketing departments with an all-in-one solution powered by AI-driven insights.

What is the role?

Our clients typically operate within the Marketing, Public Relations, and Communications departments. You'll work directly with decision-makers, in all industries, consulting on their media solutions. Meltwater isn’t a service that is used by just one industry, so you will get exposure to companies and organizations of all shapes and sizes, helping you expand your business acumen all the time. You will be responsible for the entire outbound sales process, from prospecting to product demonstrations, to bringing clients onboard yourself – getting all of the credit for your hard work!

You will:

  • Work in a team environment to drive Meltwater's revenue growth through outbound consultative sales within the UK and Irish portfolios.
  • Consult with companies on how they use news and social media data to inform strategy and decision-making.
  • Work towards a monthly sales revenue target, with the ability to earn unlimited commissions.
  • Liaise closely with a mentor to ensure you are continuously developing your sales and leadership skills.

In addition:

  • You will see a rapid career progression!
  • Successful consultants who have delivered excellent sales and leadership results will assume responsibility for a team of their own as a Sales Manager.
  • Meltwater then offers its top managers the opportunity to run a business unit as a Managing Director. This opportunity can take place anywhere in the world, giving the Director the chance to move internationally depending on their experience and preference.
  • If people management isn't your long-term goal, then Meltwater also offers its top sellers the chance to move into an Account Executive role, before the opportunity to move into a Global Enterprise role.
