Account Manager


The mission

bpost is always on the move. For our people, we create an environment of challenging projects, inspiring partnerships and state-of-the-art technology, with attractive job opportunities and training programmes for everyone.

In this context, we are looking for exceptional Account Managers. We seek motivated people who have always worked as a telesales agent but are now ready to take the next step in their career. In this case, a combination of phone prospecting with regular visits to customers. Enthusiastic people responsible for the further development of our print advertising products. Marketing lovers who build long-term relationships with decision makers in the upper echelons of the Belgian SME market.

Do these roles and responsibilities appeal to you?

  • Forecasting and planning: Every month, you fulfil your duties and assess your results, based on your annual plan. You propose improvements to your manager.
  • Portfolio management: you are fully responsible for your own portfolio. You identify opportunities and decide which actions help you strengthen customer relationships.
  • Prospection: you look for new customers both proactively (based on prospection lists) and reactively (based on leads generated by campaigns) and you decide the best way to approach them. By phone, through LinkedIn, in a conference call or in a face-to-face visit. You choose the most suitable channel, depending on the complexity at that given moment.
  • Market knowledge: You closely follow events in your region and develop a solid knowledge of the market, based on contacts in your network, close contacts with your regional manager and by following the regional news, among other things.

Your profile

In your role of Account Manager, you are clearly a dynamic team player who enjoys contacts with customers. We highlight the following qualities:

  • You have an infectious passion for marketing.
  • You love challenges (which you will definitely face in the advertising world).
  • You have an analytical mind.
  • You have a bachelor’s degree (preferably in communication or sales) or equivalent experience.
  • You have at least three years’ experience in a marketing or sales role.
  • You have experience of B2B service.
  • You are a Dutch speaker with a good command of French and English.

Why bpost?

Just like many other companies, we offer an attractive package of benefits alongside your monthly salary, including lunch vouchers, eco vouchers, hospitalisation insurance, group insurance, disability insurance, a bonus, a car, the regular 20 days’ annual leave plus an additional seven days’ leave, an end-of-year premium, double holiday pay, fixed expenses and many benefits at more than a hundred bpost partners.

This is where we really distinguish ourselves:

  • You are given full responsibility for your own portfolio (major SME accounts)
  • You embark on an ambitious three-year growth pathway to rise from Account Manager to Key Account Manager and Business Development Manager.
  • The decisions are made here in Belgium (so things will move fast). We are very active in Europe and Asia, so you will also work in an international context.
  • You join a company that is evolving rapidly. This adds complexity, but especially offers many challenges and innovative projects.
  • The pleasant atmosphere, team spirit and friendly bpost culture is unique. And we’ll prove it.
  • You can concentrate 100% on your job, with optimal support from all our internal services before, during and after your sales process.

As an international service provider for parcels and e-commerce logistics, we create real connections to bring together millions of people, businesses and communities. Our greatest asset is our 34,000 plus employees. It is because of them that we are able to play a key role in our fast-changing society.
