Introduction
At IBM, work is more than a job - it's a calling: To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you've never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world's most challenging problems? If so, lets talk.


Your Role and Responsibilities
This important role, as a Security Services Sales Executive, is responsible for leading the sales of
Security Services to clients within a dedicated sales territory.
Services will include consulting services, managed, system integration and
product sales.

Primarily the role is focused on identifying and developing new opportunities from both
new and existing clients.

The role requires knowledge and understanding of client business and technical
challenges and being able to build deep and strong relationships with clients to propose
solutions and bring deals to contract closure.

The specific deal leading activities include:
- Leading cross functional engagement teams on specific pre-qualification opportunities;
- being responsible for the security value proposition;
- selling the value of security services to prospective clients;
- preparing client proposals and responding to RFI and RFPs

Strong networking skills will be crucial as you will be required to work with different parts
of IBM throughout the lifecycle of a deal. This will include the IBM client teams in the
identification and qualification of opportunities, through to leading bid teams made up of
legal, technical, commercial and risk personnel as you work through to closure. For some
opportunities where it is a multi-brand deal you will be required to work closely with the
sales leads for those brands, in some cases leading the deal for IBM and in others
supporting where we are dependent on another part of IBM for success.
You will have a demonstrable track record of sales leadership and a successful track
record of leading teams in the pursuit of large (> $1m) opportunities is essential. Security
services knowledge will be a significant benefit but not essential for the role.


Required Technical and Professional Expertise
1) Security Knowledge - in both consulting led selling and industry solutions,
2) Excellent communication skills - both oral and written in English and Norwegian,
3) Proven experience (3-5 years) and successful track record of selling,
4) Knowledge of the cyber security industry,
5) Deal and engagement leadership.



Preferred Technical and Professional Expertise
1) Knowledge of the Energy & Utilities industrial sector,
2) Both Services and Software experience,
3) Regulation and Compliance experience.
