Freeman is an experienced and savvy information services provider to the New Zealand corporate community, established in 2002 by Matt Freeman. It was previously known as Freeman Media.
It specialises in online subscription news and information services for specific business sectors, publishing a range of reports and maps, and running industry events.
Energy News was established in 2008 - a subscription-based news and information website for the New Zealand energy sector. Energy News has carved out a niche as the trusted source of New Zealand energy sector news and information.
In September 2013 Freeman launched into the mining and quarrying sectors with the publication of Inside Resources, an online subscription-based web service, using the same formula as Energy News.
It has since set up a number of events within the energy and mining and quarrying sectors that support these two publications. These include the Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards, Downstream, New Zealand Petroleum Club, Energy Trader Forum and the New Zealand Minerals Forum.
Freeman also publishes six large, detailed industry maps, which provide an in-depth picture of the different sectors the company works with. Titles include Minerals Exploration and Mining, Petroleum Exploration and Mining, North Island Quarries, South Island Quarries, Energy Infrastructure and Smart Energy Technology.
Launched in 2012, the Energy News and ABB Annual NZ Electricity Survey polls the electricity industry on key trends, opportunities and challenges. In 2016 over 500 participants took part in the survey, and the results are widely used to inform strategic business decisions.
This is a new strategic role for Freeman which combines managing new subscriptions, selling across our product range and existing account management to deliver the best service to our customers.
We are after a salesperson that can create their own opportunities and convert them, leveraging our strong existing relationships and brand profile in the sector.
You will need to be confident in both a telemarketing and face-to-face sales environment. A large part of the role will be spent engaging with clients and a steady outbound phone call and meeting schedule will need to be kept.
Proficiency across the Microsoft Office range of products and sound document presentation, grammar and spelling is expected.
We are looking for an individual who likes the idea of advancing themselves and their career and is prepared to work hard and long hours to do so. A financial incentive is part of the salary package and there is ample room to over-achieve.
Corporate presentation skills will be assumed and you will not be afraid to deal with industry executives at a high level but also at an operational level.
National travel is a core part of this role and an unrestricted driver's licence is essential. After-hours attendance at industry functions, conferences and other events is also required.
This is a real opportunity for a motivated individual to develop a new role into something that delivers, and establish themselves as a valuable service provider to top New Zealand organisations in both the private and public sector.
