Sales Development Representative

On an enjoyable day, I have had several meetings with scale ups that want to collaborate with us. I have been able to clearly communicate who we are and what we do, and in doing so I can deliver good service.

I have a less enjoyable day when I have to clean up or enter a lot of data.

Firsthand experience

You have identified a number of potential clients and you would really like to win over these clients. How do you go about it?

Firstly, you make sure that, together with the marketing team, online awareness is created. Through email marketing, you see if these organisations are interested in becoming partners. If marketing qualified leads come out of it, you get in touch with the contacts. You keep track of client contact in HubSpot, the internal CRM system. As soon as the clients have signed, you schedule an onboarding presentation. For remote clients, you arrange a video call. Then you transfer the clients to Tim’s Recruitment team who are in charge of client management during the partnerships follow-up.


The growth path at One is not fixed. You have the freedom to develop yourself personally, and you work together with people you can learn a lot from. Justin did marketing at Ajax, Kaan has set up several successful recruitment companies, and Ferdinand comes straight from a Venture Capital business. There is a budget for following online courses and because we are rather small, you determine yourself what role you want to play in One’s growth over the coming years. You still belong to the first 10 team members. Below is an example of your possible growth path.
