The account manager is not just a salesperson, but a strategist who must understand your customers’ needs. You should not trivialise the recruitment of your account manager. He or she maintains good relations with customers, anticipates requests, solves problems and stimulates sales opportunities. In Belgium, Archetype stands out as the reference firm for helping companies find the ideal profiles for this position by following their call for applications procedure.

What is Account Manager recruitment?

The Account Manager’s main role is to develop and maintain the relationship between the company and its customers. They are responsible for managing a portfolio of customer accounts, often in service or technology-intensive companies.
To excel in their job, Account Managers need to possess a number of skills and qualities, such as :

  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Excellent negotiation and communication skills
  • A high level of responsiveness and adaptability
  • A solid general knowledge of the products or services offered by their company
  • Fluency in English and/or other languages

Recruiting an Account Manager for a fixed-term or permanent contract after a call for applications is a real challenge for companies. Especially those that need to surround themselves with the best talent to develop their business and strengthen their position in the market.
