ESP (Efficiency Sustainability Performance)
Full Time

Applications close: 15 September 2023

Energy Solution Providers Limited
At ESP, we’re reinventing the future of both Utilities management & Carbon accounting to help companies achieve zero carbon.

We currently work with 200+ organisations, providing utility monitoring to over 2000 buildings around the country, helping them save an unmatched $100m and reduce carbon emissions by over 74,000 TCO2-e (That’s a lot!). Two of our longest-standing clients are ASB (achieved 49% energy reduction) and Air New Zealand (achieved 52% energy reduction).

As we look to scale in New Zealand and abroad, exciting times are ahead for the company. We are looking for a Business Development Specialist with the experience, talent and energy to drive outstanding growth.

The Business Development Specialist is a senior role in a consultative sales position. Principally, this role is to grow ESP sales revenue through the acquisition of new customers within ESP’s Utility Management Product and associated energy efficiency, decarbonisation, and NABERSNZ rating services.

You’ll be working with commercial building managers, facilities managers, and large to enterprise businesses to support them optimise utilities usage in order to reduce emissions and ongoing costs.

As a senior member of the sales team, you will have input into our strategy to drive the revenue growth engine in NZ and beyond. This role will also contribute, as an important customer touchpoint, to ESP’s evolving product and service creation.

You’ll be tasked with actively working across all stages of the sales pipeline, including working with a range of teams collaboratively and efficiently. A strong focus on customer outcomes is required to ensure customer satisfaction and growth. In the first 12 months of a new client partnership, you’ll be responsible for building long-term valuable relationships with clients to expand an account. You’ll also be responsible for forging new partnerships in the industry to support our growth plans.

There will be a technical element to the role, so experience or aptitude with commercial building operations will definitely be an advantage. The role will work closely with the Client Services and Technical Services energy management team; building a consulting business that can deliver tangible energy and opex cost reduction on an increasing scale.

ESP and sales operate in a changing and dynamic environment – it is imperative that you are a self-starter able to contribute confidently to enable ESP and yourself to be successful.
