We’re looking for a Business Manager to play a key role in F-Secure’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 our Solution Consultants and wider technical and support teams to develop, nurture and convert new clients to our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offering. As a Business Manager you’ll be critical to the long-term growth and success of F-Secure’s MDR Business Unit.

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. Importantly, we have some of the best people in the industry, helping clients to significantly increase their security posture..

We’re looking for high calibre individuals to join our team and help us with the explosive growth of MDR in the enterprise space by finding and closing net new F-Secure Countercept business.

What we need…

Taking the decision to purchase a service that has to protect an 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 board’s assurance.

As a 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 within 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 coordinating moderately large teams of people within the prospect (and across F-Secure) 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 (F-Secure will provide training).
  • Understand the F-Secure 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 UK Sales Director

Who we think will be a great fit…

As a successful Business Manager you will demonstrate:

  • The ability to articulate technical concepts into business insights that can be understood by business executives
  • The ability to open doors at the highest level – specifically into FTSE 250 and Blue-Chip global enterprises
  • An understanding of current geo-political knowledge (if possible to map to current cyber issues)
  • A strong track record of exceeding sales targets
  • Experience of selling specialist service-based solutions – ideally security focused
  • A consistent and logical approach to time management and prioritisation
  • Commercial acumen and a strong customer focused approach
  • You are a quick learner, intellectually curious and a problem solver
  • You work well in an environment where micro-management is not part of the culture
  • You have excellent communication skills
  • Additionally a background in Challenger Sales / Miller Heiman and prior experience of Information Security will be an advantage
