20 years ago Juliet Davenport wanted to do something that would have real and lasting value to our planet.

She believed everyone had the right to clean, green energy to power their homes and businesses. That all of our futures depended on it. So, she did something revolutionary.

She built a company whose sole purpose was to power the choice of a cleaner, greener future for everyone.

She believed that businesses could lead the way. And that if people were offered an alternative to the fossil fuels that were killing our planet, they would take it.

And they did. Over 259,000 homes and businesses have chosen our green power. Supplied by 1,400 different locations – from a single home solar panels to wind farms.

But that’s not enough.

In 2020 we’re transforming the service we offer our customers so we can help more people choose a cleaner, greener future together. Because everyone has the right to power their homes and businesses without risking the earth. All of our futures depend on it.

To do this, we need your help. Will you join our fight?

As a Business Development Manager, you’ll join our Business Services team, responsible for the growth of business customers through development and delivery of services. With a passion for working towards targets and exceeding them, you’ll be proactive in your approach to acquiring new customers and confident when identifying opportunities to cross sell other products and services. You’ll utilise a number of channels to reach targets, including outbound calling, leveraging of existing client relationships, as well as partnering with third parties, intermediaries and Energy managers.

As a confident communicator, you’ll build strong relationships with both partners and key stakeholders, delivering and supporting the roll out of new propositions. You’ll be proactive when promoting these to our customers and identifying selling opportunities. With an in-depth knowledge of Good Energy’s propositions and outstanding service, you’ll excel when completing the acquisition process from negotiating to implementing. You’ll also work closely with the Business Account Management team to deliver a seamless customer experience.

In this role you’ll identify opportunities to maximise sales by providing feedback and insight from customers, helping to develop our propositions to reflect advancements and changes in the industry. You’ll ensure that any business won is done so compliantly, following the correct sign off process and contract governance framework and ensure accuracy and relevant information of leads on the CRM system.

We’re looking for a confident communicator, who keeps the customer at the heart of everything they do and is committed to delivering excellent service whilst also delivering and exceeding sales targets. With outstanding negotiation and influencing skills, you’ll have experience of contractual negotiation as well as experience of managing a portfolio.

You’ll be flexible in your approach to work, attending external meetings and events whilst also taking ownership and managing own workload. With a keen eye for detail and an analytic nature, you’ll relish the opportunity to dive into the detail on contract negotiation, contract terms and deal structures.
