  • Updating our Group CRM to ensure that the CRM accurately reflects your sales activity at all times
  • Ensuring your clients have signed contracts and orders are processed in line with Globe’s internal processes
  • Development of cross selling opportunities for fellow team members where possible
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of the key markets we operate in.
