Sales Development Representative – Dutch Speaking
  • Funding Options
Funding Options is an online marketplace for small business finance products. We’ve helped thousands of businesses access finance since launching in 2012, matching them to the most relevant lender from a panel of over fifty, including banks alongside alternative finance providers.

We’re looking for a Dutch speaking Sales Development Representative to help build out our ING partnership in the Netherlands and provide our team of Business Finance Specialists with a healthy pipeline of new prospects. You’ll take the time to understand more about the businesses you speak with (how they work, growth plans, challenges, their experience of finance so far), and identify their needs and pain points.

You’ll undergo extensive sales training, to learn how to handle common objections through a mixture of theory and practical training. You’ll also be on the front lines of our new lead generation efforts — testing new lead sources and data, cleansing cold data lists and following up on targeted marketing campaigns — to assess the effectiveness of our customer nurture programme and enabling us to exceed ambitious growth targets.

    • Working with our Product team to enrich our country specific data matching algorithm
    • Assist in campaign and communication optimisation when needed, including proofreading copy to ensure materials are appealing to the Dutch public
    • Contributing to the development and implementation of a sales strategy and process
