LEGO – Associate Account Manager
Would you like to develop your knowledge of stakeholder management as you contribute with your solid analytical skills to provide key sales and marketing insights within toy retail? Join a high-performance team – we are ready to onboard you and help your skills and network grow!
As our new Associate Account Manager you will be part of our Channel Specialist team in Nordic Sales, headed up by a channel development director. Here, you join a deeply professional sales team dedicated to maximizing the potential in specialist toy stores and grocery stores in Sweden by consolidating and further building our brand through inspiring and engaging in-store experiences. The office is based in Solna, Stockholm.
About the role
Although you will support the entire division, you will work closely with two key account managers from the grocery and toy specialist channels. Through close collaboration with Sales, Marketing, Operations and key customers, you will support the key account managers in their daily work as you:
- Support the development of activity plans
- Analyze master data and perform regular forecasting
- Create monthly newsletter and performance reports
- Assist with communicative tasks such as participating in client meetings and developing presentations and visualizations of in-store merchandising (planograms)
- Be a key support at Costumer Fairs and LEGO World
The LEGO office in Solna has a strong link to LEGO HQ – so expect travels to Billund in Denmark on bi-monthly basis.
Profile & experience
At the LEGO Group, we recognize talent when we see it. Therefore, we don´t require many years´ experience. Instead, we are looking for a strong collaborative candidate with a curious mindset that brings strong analytical skills as well as a genuine interest in sales and the ability to follow a steep learning curve. It is equally important that you are structured and thorough in your work as well as communicative and ready to network.
Just as our clients trust us to perform and bring value to their business, we trust you to perform with us. You will be at the heart of sales and we will make sure to involve you in both hands-on tasks and more strategic, analytical assignments that support the key account managers in a longer perspective. We encourage you to prioritize between tasks and think two steps ahead to ensure that we are always aware of future challenges and possibilities.
We see that you also bring:
- A bachelor´s or master´s degree in economics/finance or business
- Some experience within sales, marketing or business – possibly as student assistant or graduate
- Knowledge of working with Excel and PowerPoint
- Solid communication skills in Swedish and English
