Job Details

Do you want to work for a market-leading company?

translate plus is a fast-growing, award-winning language services and technology company. Over the last 3 years we have won the prestigious Sunday Times SME Export Track 100 award, given to Britain’s top 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales, been ranked by Deloitte as among the 500 fastest growing tech businesses across the whole EMEA region, and included in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 list of the British companies with the fastest-growing international sales.

This is a London-based role.

The translation industry is very vibrant, busy and exciting but it can be very difficult for new graduates to set foot into it. We have therefore created our translate plus Graduate Academy to help recent graduates to make their way into this exciting career.

You will be part of our sales teams with a dedicated team manager and your personal mentor who will help you through the programme, answer any questions you may have and generally point you into the right direction. You will be introduced and receive training on all aspects of business development such as how to book meetings successfully, how to run marketing campaigns, write proposals, etc. and of course how to sell language services effectively. You will start as a Junior Business Consultant and on successfully completing the academy you will “graduate” a Business Consultant. At this point you will be able to actively grow your client portfolio and to continue your next career steps with us.

This role will focus on business development within the public sector.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Making telephone sales calls to existing and new customers
  • Booking client meetings
  • Discussing costs and quoting decisions with your Sales Manager
  • Preparing proposals
  • Creating marketing campaigns (e-mail shots, physical mail shots etc.)
  • Using your initiative and creativity to identify opportunities for new key accounts
  • General administrative tasks

Skills and experience required:

  • Strong oral and written English skills
  • Some experience of working in a sales environment
  • Some experience with cold calling
  • Hard-working, self-motivated and an interest in career progression
  • Enjoying making money!

What makes us different? translate plus has a culture of hard-work and fun which is created by the fantastic group of people we have working here. Everybody is very welcoming and helpful, especially when times are busy. To help support this, we offer a range of benefits, including our “loyalty plus” scheme which gives you more and more perks from year to year.

If you can’t wait to become the next member of our successful team, please contact us now – we’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Sometimes we have more than one vacancy for which we are recruiting. If you feel that you could be suitable for more than one role, please apply for your favourite. Should we feel that you are more suited to a different role we will match you accordingly.

Please note that we receive a very large amount of applications and we will get back to you directly should you be invited for an interview. If you will not be invited for an interview at this stage, your application will be saved for the future. We apologise that we cannot e-mail you individually in that case.
