Strategic Account Manager

Checkatrade - the trusted foundation of every home

We are looking for experienced Strategic Account Managers to join our team in London. You’ll be responsible for driving Checkatrade’s long-term commercial relationships with our biggest trade partners in the UK, helping these businesses grow sustainably while also delivering the best experience to our homeowners. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to join a market-leading digital business with huge growth potential and the means and investment to deliver on it! We are really moving at pace in our journey to becoming a billion-pound business and you could be part of the ride! Sound good? Get in touch!

Location - Kings Cross, London. Hybrid working applies. 4 days in the office per week, 1 day working from home.

Where do you fit in?

We are on a really exciting growth journey and we want you to help drive that! But it’s not just about us – we are looking for someone who is truly customer-obsessed and can help our accounts grow their businesses! Developing plans to add new locations, experiment with new trade categories and optimize their current positioning to homeowners, you will lead quarterly review sessions with our trade partners to review progress and see the plans come into fruition. You will ensure we are delivering value to our customers and that their day-to-day experience is seamless. 

Thinking big and bold, you will analyse the performance of your accounts, identify and suggest opportunities and improvements which are mutually beneficial to them and Checkatrade. Alongside this you will continually drive the adoption of new products and features available, providing structured feedback from our partners on these products to internal teams where needed. 

It's not just about improving our current products though; you can use your market insights to propose new services too, as you will work closely with internal stakeholders throughout the business to tackle problems and unlock opportunities.

What’s in it for you?

  • An opportunity to make a genuine impact working in an account management role on behalf of a household brand that is synonymous with quality and reputation.
  • Excellent salary + uncapped monthly and quarterly bonus potential and a great benefits package including free gym membership, discounts from a wide range of retailers, a healthcare cash plan, and a scheme to help you buy the latest bikes or tech gadgets.
  • A great office environment – you’ll be part of the team at our new Kings Cross office where you’ll get to enjoy free breakfast every day, Treat Tuesdays, Free Lunch Thursdays, and a tipple celebration here and there!
We are an equal opportunities employer that is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 
What do you need to succeed?
  • Experience working as an Account Manager at this level within a commercial function.
  • A "can do” mindset - eager to learn, able to solve problems and identify new opportunities.
  • Ability to build and maintain relationships at the various levels within our strategic accounts, always thinking about ways to improve the service for them.
  • Ability to develop joint business plans with our strategic partners and deliver against these while achieving personal objectives.
  • Confident in digesting data and using this to draw relevant insights to drive decision-making and prioritisation.
  • Strong verbal and written skills. Ability to translate account feedback and market insights into actionable proposals for internal teams. Ability to effectively present data and recommendations to senior leaders at strategic accounts and influence decision-making.
