Who you are

A Learning and Development professional who believes that the Sales Trainer is a vital role to onboarding, development and ultimate success for the global Peakon Sales team. Focused on the ongoing development of Sales Reps as well as Sales Support, the Sales Trainer is responsible for managing the curriculum for new hires and working directly with Sales Directors, Product Team and Customer Success to help facilitate ongoing training and development.

In this role you will focus on increasing the effectiveness of the Sales Organization while decreasing the amount of time required to fully onboard and ramp Sales Reps, Solution Engineers and support. Additionally, the Sales Trainer will work directly with Sales Management and the CRO to monitor ongoing development and ensure effective training is delivered on an ongoing basis.

Ideally you should be well versed in SaaS and selling to C-Level and Sales process & methodology.

The Why

  • As the Peakon Sales Team continues to grow globally we must continue to invest in and develop our people. As the face of Peakon in the Market, Sales reps should be knowledgeable, trustworthy and confident.
  • We must create a system where our teams can continue to grow with both external and internal hires, being able to join and contribute in as little time as possible accounting for growth and attrition.
  • As Peakon expands into new products and markets, information changes rapidly, this information must be delivered in clear and concise mediums while absorption of knowledge is measured and reported on.
  • Sales Management does not have the ability to be involved in all aspects of development so Sales Training is required to build a strong connection between the goals of management and the facilitation and ongoing adaptation of training.

  • Build strong relationships with new and existing hires and ensure they feel a sense of belonging.

    An Insider's view of Peakon

    How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

    As a truly global company, cross-functional (and transatlanic) collaboration is essential on a daily basis—whether that’s working with a US-based AD to strategize an account expansion or setting up a customer feedback call with our Copenhagen-based Product team.

    How does your team reward individual success?

    Working in Sales at Peakon, one of the best feelings is being able to hit gong in the office when a deal closes. We recognize individual successes in any team at Peakon, though, by sharing them through Slack. Its always really rewarding to see colleagues from around the world celebrating your success as well.
