Role: Management Trainee Program (Sales Consultant)

The Sales Consultant role is the first stage of Meltwater's Management Trainee Program, in the Client Acquisition track. This program is both intense and rewarding, designed to give top candidates an accelerated career trajectory within the organization. The program is open to fresh graduates from all specializations and backgrounds.

There are 3 parts to our program and by the end of it you will not only have developed excellent B2B sales skills, but also leadership and management skills, and achieve all of this in a workplace with a history of legendary culture!

Here is the 3-step career pathway laid out for you:

  1. Sales Consultant: Here, you'll learn all the ropes of B2B sales and become an expert on our platform, media intelligence, and sharpen your business acumen.
  2. Sales Manager: You'll be part of recruitment, training and managing a team. You'll be responsible for both team and individual targets, and act as a mentor for our future batches of trainees.
  3. Managing Director: This is a true leadership opportunity. You'll be responsible for the development and results of the whole Client Acquisition team, and you'll be reporting directly to management.

We have lots of training and development in place in both media intelligence and all things sales! The training doesn't stop here – throughout your management program, you'll constantly be mentored by senior leaders.

Meltwater employees embody the work-hard, play-hard spirit through our 3 core values - Moro (fun), Enere (number one) and Respekt (respect). These founding principles stem from our Norwegian roots and are why Meltwater has been named a Great Place to Work in several markets across the globe.

Culture

Our values are at the core of our culture, and they can be summed up by the acronym MER, which means more in Norwegian. These values are our commitment to our employees and our customers.

  • Moro [‘mo(·)ro]
    Norwegian for “Fun.” We believe that in order to become successful as a whole, we should all enjoy ourselves. That’s why we promote a fun, collaborative working environment.

  • Enere [‘e nðr’e]
    Norwegian for “Number One.” At Meltwater, average isn’t good enough. Our goal is to build a groundbreaking company supported by a thriving culture in which our people aspire to exceed their personal expectations.

  • Respekt [re’spekt]
    Norwegian for “Respect.” We believe it matters how a company or an individual becomes number one. Striving to be the best doesn’t mean sharp elbows: we should all treat our colleagues and customers with respect and humility.

  • MER
    An acronym for Moro, Enere and Respekt, which creates the Norwegian word “More.” We celebrate our victories without losing our drive to improve — whether in reaching personal goals or corporate milestones. Though simple on the surface, our values guide us in everything we do, from how we prioritize our objectives and make decisions to how we clarify expectations and measure our success.
