Grantify

Summary

Grantify is a rapidly-growing startup based in the UK. They help companies win government grants and other funding opportunities. Grantify are expanding to the USA and are seeking an entrepreneurial UK-based Account Manager to be part of their new USA sales team.

Note that you may at times be encouraged to work East Coast (ET) hours, 2pm – 10pm UK time. However, Grantify is a flexible employer and is open to candidates for whom this schedule does not suit.

You will report directly into the BizDev Lead in the UK. This is not an outbound sales role. Instead you will be a B2B closer, with a non-salesy approach. You must already have or be interested in developing a working knowledge of the innovative technology practices championed by Grantify’s clients. 

Think of yourself as a Dragon on the popular BBC TV series – you will be screening opportunities and making quick decisions as to who to take forwards.
