Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty).

You will be part of our team of four Account Consultants throughout the country – one in both Christchurch and Wellington, and two in Auckland. 

Essentially, your role is to support and expand our first aid B2B business in the top half of the North Island. Our offerings are strong, but our market share is not yet what it should be in the northern region. There is an excellent opportunity to make a real impact.     Benefits include:

  • Competitive base salary of $65,000 + commission on achieved targets
  • Company car
  • Mobile phone
  • Innovative range of products and services to sell

  2. Be an independent problem-solverWhile you will have the power of the Red Cross organisation and brand behind you, this Auckland-based role requires you to work remotely from your line manager and most of the sales team. You will also be working face to face and digitally one-to-one with current and potential clients. It is crucial that you are confident in delivering fantastic customer service without a support network at hand. 
  3. Be tech-savvy and a fast learner!We work with an ever-expanding range of CRM, design, client portal, shared workspace, online booking and purchase platforms.
