Are you a confident and organised person?
We are currently recruiting for a passionate, confident and organised Account Executive to join our vibrant team.
We work with ground-breaking technology.

They’re responsible for agreeing and implementing quarterly business plans and ensuring sales and growth targets are met.
Sigma is a software and technical services distributor. We help market leading vendors reach more customers by working with resellers across Europe.
We’re an enthusiastic, customer-focused team; to ensure we can solve our customers’ problems we invest time in training and personal development. To help the team grow the business, we work hard giving everyone balance – a personal trainer, yoga and an employee assistance program are just a few of the ways we do this. Having our HQ on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park in the beautiful market town of Ashburton also helps. Colleagues regularly tell us that their teams are why they love their jobs.
