New Business Executive
About the Role
Are you known for asking lots of questions, do you build rapport with people easily, and empathise with their problems? If so, then the Homesearch New Business Executive will be a great fit for you. As a New Business Executive you will start relationships with customers, genuinely caring about their business needs, becoming their ally over time, and helping them to succeed.
In the hiring manager's words:
“Working at Homesearch you will be problem solving every day. We're not one of those startups that demands midnight finishes and 100 hour weeks from our people. We trust you and we all work as hard as each other. We set our expectations high and everybody collectively rises to the challenge. Startup life is like running your own business - if you don't take responsibility for your part of the role, the whole is affected. If something goes wrong here it's nobody's fault, but it’s everybody's responsibility to sort it out, so you are never on your own.”
