Job Description

Would you like to be part of a fast-growing Products Industry (Retail, Consumer Goods, Industrial, Travel and Life Sciences) sales team where you will work with, and learn from, Accenture's top sales executives in the Netherlands on strategically important, multi-disciplinary and cross-geography pursuits?

You will support to shape and drive all activities within the sales cycle of Technology-Led Business Transformations – from helping the Accenture team to originate new opportunities, creating the first proposal and to closure of the final contract. 

Your role will be broad, differing day in, and day out, and you will have the autonomy to shape and grow the role in line with your ambitions. It will equip you with a broad range of industry-relevant skills and a network that will enable you to nurture and grow a successful career in the direction you choose to take. You will become part of a small yet diverse (inter-disciplinary and international) team. We enjoy working together but also like to meet up outside of work for dinner or drinks together.
