About the role

This is a great opportunity to work across the customer lifecycle and a key role in supporting ESA Risk’s growth.

  • Pipeline generation – reach out to prospects via email, telephone, networks, events and social media.
  • Planning – thinking ahead about who we want to reach/see, where they are, and when and how it makes sense for us to approach them.
  • Identification of opportunities – research potential targets, opportunities and leads, as well as the competitive landscape.
  • Data management – population, enhancement, cleansing and archiving of contact data, particularly in HubSpot CRM.
  • Quotation management – ensuring we follow through on the process to take advantage of more opportunities and improve internal reporting and development.
  • Compliance – answer supplier onboarding questions when asked by clients/potential clients, and ensure ESA Risk is in the best position to win new accounts/work where there is a compliance requisite.
  • Copywriting – communications to contacts, plus regular article writing and other marketing content creation.
  • Reporting – demonstrate impact on a regular basis.
