Nine Twenty are delighted to be working exclusively with our progressive and disruptive Edinburgh based client, who are market leaders in the  British Energy sector. 

The organisation are a leading demand response business; they provide rapid access to response and reserve energy and they deliver this with much lower cost and much lower emissions than conventional power stations. As a business they have pioneered their industry and they lead the aggregated demand-side reserve services for electricity system balancing, and continues to lead this sector in volume, technical capability and innovation. They create this reserve by aggregating small generators and flexible electrical loads into capacity groups that are made available to the UK’s Distribution Network Operators for short periods when the national or local electricity system is under stress. These generation assets and electrical loads are owned by third party industrial and commercial businesses that partner with them for market access and service provision. 

 

As an Account Manager you will focus on retaining and developing strategic Energy Partner accounts, and ensuring that all Energy Partners continue to receive exceptional service and support.

You will assume responsibility for key Energy Partner relationships, supported by an existing experienced Account Manager. Reporting to the Sales Director, you will target organic growth within these accounts, and will have responsibility for managing and developing the business relationship.

You will contribute to and lead internal and external performance reviews focusing on improvement opportunities that will help achieve organic growth targets.  You will also support the New Business Development team with sales related activity, helping to manage and develop new sales opportunities.

This role is based in central Edinburgh. You will spend time visiting Energy Partners and other market stakeholders. You will also have opportunity to attend conferences, trade fairs and exhibitions.

This role will involve travel within the UK.
