How will I make a difference?

Valpak Data Insights work with and for our 400+ customers, to build an accurate data set to ensure our customers are compliant with a range of legislative and voluntary commitments. We liaise with suppliers, conduct bespoke weighing services, and use our market leading product and packaging weights database, to fill in the gaps. The result is a detailed, comprehensive data set of the customers business obligations that can be viewed and reviewed in our Insight Platform. In addition to helping our customers to be compliant, we provide actionable insights derived from our data to help our customers make informed decisions & drive towards their sustainability goals.

The Account Manager role is dual-focused, with some aspects requiring a strongly customer-focused outlook and excellent communication skills. While other aspects need a data-focused, problem-solving, logical approach. As the Account Manager, you will support a portfolio of customers by being the primary point of contact for each one. Your main responsibilities will include maintaining consistent and effective communication, pinpointing opportunities for enhanced interaction and service improvement, and ensuring the timely and accurate collection and submission of data for all accounts.

The Account Manager should be a highly motivated, pro-active individual who is able to take responsibility for their own workload while maintaining a collaborative approach within a busy, operationally focused team. The role is suited to those with experience in customer service and who have a keen interest in numeric reasoning, client interaction, and knowledge gathering.
