The Calgary Chamber of Commerce sales role is part of the membership team and actively seeks out businesses to determine the right products and services that they need to support their current business challenges. The Senior Sales Specialist delivers results by closing new sales to meet and exceed sales targets contributing to the growth of the Chamber. You are a listener, and can work collaboratively to suggest solutions to both growth-focussed entrepreneurs, and business advocates.
What it looks like for you
You will create an action plan of target businesses that fit with the Chamber’s overall strategy and are in need of the products and services the Chamber provides. Based on your conversations with potential members, you offer recommendations to solve issues. This starts with the right membership level for their needs and can grow to include a customized advertising schedule, attendance at an upcoming event, and enrollment in one of our discounted partner benefits.
You are plugged in to Calgary’s business scene; highly news-literate and current affairs oriented, with a finger on the pulse of key business issues. You leverage your business knowledge to relate to business owners and corporations within the city to satisfy your desire to close sales.
You never stop pushing to achieve the financial targets that support the success of the business strategy for the Chamber.
To make this happen you must seek and establish new relationships across a wide range of people and businesses.
