What will you do as a Commercial Operations Intern?
For the first time ever, we are expanding our internship programme to our Commercial Operations team. We’ve got some phenomenal opportunities for individuals to learn about what it takes to run a high performing commercial/sales team and contribute to the success of this vital business function.
Now, don’t panic, you’ve seen the word ‘SALES’. This ISN’T calling people up trying to sell them a pen. This is about what goes on from an operational and enablement perspective. It’s fascinating, rewarding & the exposure and experience on offer is quite something.
You will work with the commercial operations’ functional leads in Sales Operations and Sales Enablement, obtaining exposure to all aspects of these roles and participate in the company sales cadence and operations projects.
You will need an interest in business, a curiosity about what makes organizations function, an analytical mindset and be comfortable challenging the status quo. You will learn how organizations build plans, initiatives, processes, and tools that give a sales force everything it needs to win new business and exceed the company’s sales targets.
When?! Your internship will run from August 2021 until the end of July 2022!
- You will help define and deliver sales enablement activity across all regions
- Design analytical dashboards that enable us to be able to predict performance, revenue & overall success
- You will support weekly and monthly business performance review, challenge the teams and track progress on associated priorities
- You will support the adoption of our CRM system (Oracle Sales Cloud) and associated Sales Effectiveness Processes within the company
- You will be part of an incredible team with a blend of skills and experiences.
I mean, we could go on and on as there’s so much to do and get involved with, but we thought we’d save some of it to later in the process!
One of the most important things to remember is that you make your internship, you can take whatever you wish from your time with us. There is a phenomenal amount of opportunity here, you just need to reach out & grab it!
Expect an experience like no other…
This placement is not a programme, it’s an experience. An experience that empowers you, that develops you & that rewards you.
We’ve built an incredible experience that intertwines your day-day role, learning & development, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) work & a little something we call…Internpreneurship, where we give you the opportunity to literally change the way we operate as a business, how’s that for responsibility?!
You’ll have an established and well-rounded support network too. You will have your team, a designated mentor, and a dedicated panel of passionate Travelporters, who’ll be there to support & guide you throughout your Travelport journey.
