Director, Strategic Growth

Postgraduate degree
Functional areas

Does this describe you?

  • You’re a sales guru. You have a passion for sales, networking, building relationships with C-suite people, and closing deals. Engaging in a process that involves investigating, meeting, probing, applying, convincing, and “tying it up” is near and dear to your heart. You relate well with abbreviations like CRM, B2B, SOW, and RFP.
  • You’re a hunter. You thrive in an environment where you can create something out of nothing, initiate conversations, and grow business. Your follow-up and follow-through are out of this world.
  • You’re a natural collaborator. You juggle the needs of your prospects and clients, and, on occasion, move heaven and earth so that at the end of the day, you close the deal. You’re a team player and love collaborating with knowledge experts on visual and creative ways to solve client problems.
  • You excel with selling intangibles. You love solving client problems and making other people’s lives better. Shaping solutions and consulting using Root’s unique capabilities, solutions, and expertise with Fortune 1000 clients is the equation for a perfect day.

On any given day at Root, you might…

  • Navigate it to happen. This is where you put your heart and soul – prospecting interactions, meeting stakeholders, crafting proposals, driving meaningful outcomes, managing procurement, and shepherding legal activities to close big deals – you’re a jack-of-all-sales-trades.
  • Learn about a client and what’s really happening in their business. We work closely with clients to learn everything about their business and how we can help them grow and face whatever challenges they have in connecting their people to levers of change. It’s pretty darn interesting to learn what happens behind the scenes at Fortune 1000 companies.
  • Generate opportunities. Attending conferences or events, following up on marketing-generated leads, mining your network and relationships, pursuing dormant account growth with the support of others and referrals are sure pathways to success.
  • Cultivate relationships. Whether it’s external with our prospects and clients or internal with fellow Root employees, you establish relevancy and develop close partnerships. You believe that nothing gets done right at the expense of others. You’re a relationship expert and you create value through consulting and scoping solutions. You speak the same language as the client, understand what keeps them up at night, and cater your interaction and offerings accordingly.
  • Partner with awesomely talented people. You’ll work with other sales professionals, consultants, project managers, and marketing to create meaningful client engagements.
