Account Manager


Based at our Central London offices in Holborn an opportunity has arisen for someone to join our experienced, award winning and very successful sales team covering the European, Middle East and African Petrochemical markets. 

Continuous coaching, training and career development are top of the agenda at ICIS. As part of a much larger organization then there is a clear career progression and certainly no limit to the job opportunities that are on offer to those who show success drive and determination, be they in Key Accounts or Senior Management.


You will join globally the most successful sales team in the company managing a portfolio of existing accounts as well as selling to new customers and will be operating at Director, CEO and Senior Trader level.

Though previous sales experience would be an advantage, it is not mandatory because we can train you in sales and develop your talent and potential. What we do need to see is a passion and drive to both succeed and learn in a fabulous and energetic working environment. 


To be considered for the role you will need the following qualities:

• Professional proficiency in both English and German (one other European language would be beneficial, but not essential).

• Commercially minded, goal driven with a strong motivation to succeed in a high performing sales team.

• A natural on the phone and comfortable, once trained, to have high in-depth business discussions with senior decision makers.

• Prior sales experience preferred but not essential, as we can teach that, just the desire to work in sales and be commercially astute, intelligent and quick thinking.

• Be prepared for occasional foreign travel.
