Digital Account Manager
Taking responsibility for strengthening our relationships with existing clients
Alberon has been designing and building bespoke websites and software solutions for organisations in Oxfordshire for over 15 years. Our friendly, highly experienced team of web and software developers is dedicated to building robust, secure and easy to use systems.
This is a fantastic chance for personal development in a varied role which you can influence going forward.
Alberon’s customer services team looks after our existing clients whose systems we develop, support and maintain. You will take responsibility for a number of these accounts. You’ll need to be in regular touch with these clients to make sure that we are meeting their needs and that their web/software systems are working for them as well as they can be. You’ll need to get to know these clients and their businesses so that you can understand their needs and work out the best way to help them.
You’ll need to prepare quotations and proposals so the clients have all the information they need to make a decision. You need to be an excellent communicator, both face to face, on the phone and in writing. Alberon’s business is a technical one, but we are strongly in favour of clear, jargon-free communication.
You’ll work closely with other Alberon staff who are responsible for sales and marketing, and with our development manager who oversees the work of the design and development teams. You’ll also work closely with our support staff and with our project managers to make sure that the rest of the Alberon team have the information they need to deliver projects.
You must be knowledgeable and enthusiastic about how we can use web/software to help our clients to develop their businesses. You need to be a team player with a “can-do” attitude who can build strong relationships with our clients and with the talented people we have at Alberon.
You should be comfortable working in a small business environment where there are opportunities for people with drive to make a real difference to our work and to our success.
