Are you a Strategic Business Manager? Do you want to work for an organisation that protects clients from threats from state sponsored and sophisticated criminal groups? Are you experienced selling specialist managed services/software/SaaS solutions ideally with a security focus? If so then read on...


We’re looking for a Strategic Business Manager to play a key role in Countercept’s growth by driving demand within Enterprise organisations. If you want to accelerate your career into the exciting and innovative world of Cyber Security then read on!

In this position you will be working directly with the senior team and wider sales team to develop, nurture and convert new clients and as a Strategic Business Manager you’ll be critical to the long-term growth and success of Countercept.

Our service is designed to counter Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) from state sponsored and sophisticated criminal groups, it detects and responds to compromise and attempted compromise across our clients’ IT estates. These techniques are often undetected by Anti-Virus solutions and other Anti-Malware software and therefore our service represents a significant step change within the industry.

We’re looking for high calibre individuals to join our team and help us control the explosive growth of the company by consistently helping us close new Countercept business.

What we need…

Taking the decision to purchase a service that has to protect your organisation against cyber-attacks mounted by some of the best attackers in the world is not an easy one. The decision typically involves the CISO (Chief Information Security Officer), CTO, CIO, and occasionally the CEO/MD, and is increasingly seen as fundamentally important for the boards assurance.

As a Strategic Business Manager we would like you to:

  • Generate early conversations and opportunities – driving demand within enterprise organisations
  • Identify a carefully selected strategic prospect list and work to qualify, develop and build credibility with in these organisations. Undertake this objective using a consistent and methodical approach on a day to day basis. Demonstrate constant progress.
  • Quickly grasp business drivers, and be capable of planning and co-ordinating moderately large teams of people within the prospect (and across MWR) whilst demonstrating clear structure and sequence throughout the deal cycle.
  • Move prospects through the sales process, identifying the key stakeholders while mapping value and the business case
  • Develop, understand and match key drivers within the prospect business with likely threat actors (attackers) and any geopolitical motivation.
  • Team work with, and be sensitive to, existing relationships and account objectives (where relevant)
  • Have a day to day interest in geo- political developments globally, and eventually show that you are able to understand how a political event would be likely to decrease/increase the likelihood of attack against certain organisations (MWR will provide training).
  • Understand the Countercept value proposition and be able to tailor this in-line with prospect requirements
  • Consistently review performance against target. Forecasting personal sales and monitoring personal performance against targets on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis, whilst providing reporting.
  • Tailor and control each opportunity.
  • Achieve the individual sales target set with the Countercept Sales Director
