Workable makes software to help companies find and hire great people. We get recruiting and its role in building healthy workplaces — which is why we’re proud more than 20,000 teams around the world use Workable to do exactly that.

And while we take recruiting seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. At Workable, you’ll find smart people who have fun, learn and innovate, and help others do the same. We brainstorm, we laugh, and, occasionally, we party (there’s a lot to celebrate), but we also appreciate people’s need for quiet time and focused work. We respect everyone, we hire the best, and make sure every experience is special.

We’re growing fast and we’re looking for a Junior Account Executive to join the team in London. As a Junior Account Executive you will have the ability to develop your sales skills and career in a fast paced environment.

The ideal Junior Account Executive will have some sales experience and excels working in a fast paced environment. Or this role could be a great switch for a recruiter looking to make a move into tech sales.
