Sales Support / Office Administrator
Help us grow, and grow with us!
The Challenge: In this diverse role, you will be THE person who assumes all administrative functions and acts as primary support for the small sales team, much like in a start-up operation. You will support senior sales people in their preparation for client meetings, collect and prepare background information and proposals and handle inquiries from demanding clients and partners. In some cases, you might also support senior sales people at on-site presentations. You will ensure that all process steps are followed and arranged in a timely manner and that offers for clients, insurance applications and policies are correctly issued. You will also see to it that the office runs smoothly, so that the sales executives can do what they do best.
Your Profile: For this demanding role, you will have a bachelor’s degree in business and several years of experience in the financial services industry. You are familiar with banking or insurance business processes. Ideally, you have passive sales or sales support experience. You are a highly organised, self-motivated problem solver who enjoys multi-tasking and is flexible enough to quickly adapt to changing demands and priorities. At the same time, you can set priorities and plan activities in your own sphere of responsibility. You are an outgoing, people-oriented individual who enjoys contact with high-level clients and business partners and you are adept at organising all administrative activities to meet our high quality standards. You speak and write fluently in business English. Native-level business German is an absolute must. Additional languages, like French or Spanish, are an asset.
The Offer: Here in Zurich, we are still small, but we have ambitions to grow. A friendly, collegial and open, very international business setting awaits you. After a period of thorough introduction and instruction, we expect you to play a major role in our future success. Here, you are a member of a small team, but you are at the same time highly autonomous and self-organised. As we grow, you can grow with us, if you wish, or you can use the invaluable experience you gain in this start-up-like setting as the stepping stone for further career advancements in the industry. An attractive compensation package mirrors your expected performance in this job.
If you find this offer attractive and you have the required qualifications, apply in confidence exclusively to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact Thomas Hascher for any questions you may have. We are looking forward to your application!
