World of CBRNe

Sales and Marketing Manager, IB Consultancy (Leiden, The Netherlands)

Job Summary:

IB Consultancy is looking for a dynamic manager to lead the Sales Team and the marketing and communication activities of the company. Experience is not the most important quality we are seeking. We are rather looking for someone who is ready to start managing a small moneymaking sales team, not someone who has done this for years. You bring the right attitude, we give you the experience! IB Consultancy is an independent defense and security company dedicated to making this world a safer and more secure place. To achieve this we provide rapid, innovative defense and security services to government, trade & industry. We connect businesses, governments and NGOs from different continents in our common goal to make this world safer and more secure. IB Consultancy organizes the NCT (Non-Conventional Threat) events, which are organized in six different regions (SE Asia, Asia-Pacific, Europe, USA, South America and Middle East). The NCT events are the global market leader in conferences and exhibitions in the field of CBRNe (Chemical, Biological and Radiological and Nuclear) and eXplosive (C-IED, EOD and demining). We also help industry and governments with specialized CBRNe knowledge in the form of research projects and consultancy engagements. You will be working within an international team of highly educated and talented program producers and skilled consultants at our office in Leiden (between Amsterdam and The Hague) in The Netherlands. IB Consultancy has an informal and flat organizational structure. Do not expect us to take you by the hand and tell you what to do. If you ask for help, you will get it, but it is your responsibility to deliver what you promised to produce! Although the majority of the sales efforts are on event sales, IB Consultancy also bids on government contracts for services (such as research consultancy), and sometimes bids with partners on complex projects that include equipment, services and training.

Responsibilities:

  • Manage a sales team of approximately 4 sales consultants
  • Sell sponsorship and exhibition packages to companies to attend our NCT events
  • Develop an understanding of the defense and security sector (specifically CBRNe and EOD/C-IED) to meet the needs of customers and build strong relationships
  • Manage and increase the database through content driven research and new leads generation
  • Generate new leads through researching, cold calling and marketing campaigns
  • Visit other trade shows and conferences to meet with existing or new clients
