International sales and marketing team – who are we?
Our small but spicy team of three consists of two experts focusing on international business and one experienced in marketing and communication. We are all located in different places and hence, have perfected the hybrid model of working domestically and internationally, remotely and on location, with routines and with highly dynamic and hectic situations, and with Finnish, English and Finglish. We trust and respect each other, value differences and excel together.
We are facing new, sometimes complex and challenging situations every day. In the core of our team is communication with different – both internal and external – stakeholders. Understanding of banking and finance plus regulation and data, in addition to interest and drive to new and unknown, is in the background of everything we do.
From the beginning of your trainee period, you will be part of a team, learning about our competences as a company and the practicalities of international business team, as well as independently taking on small market explorer and entry tasks. You will be supported by all team members during the trainee period and will be involved in the team activities from the start. In addition, part of our trainee period is an extensive package of introductory and more in-depth sessions and courses, all designed to welcome you to the world of ALM Partners.
To succeed in the job, you should have a genuine interest in continuous self-development and a willingness to immerse yourself both in the risk, regulatory and data management needs of the banking industry as well as the sales and account management in a new market. You want to grow as an expert sales professional. At the end of a successful trainee period, you will have the opportunity to get involved in various market entry, presales and sales, and account management duties and developments in an assisting role or, depending on your interests, to work at the client interface and take on more project specific responsibilities.
