Over deze vacature

For a fast growing, innovative and ambitious company we are looking for good candidates for the position of Business Development Associate.


To realise the sales ambitions, People Intouch is looking for a commercial, international and results-oriented consultative sales expert. Together with your team you will be responsible for engaging in long term partnerships with organisations all over the world (e.g. IKEA, BMW, Carlsberg). You will be involved in the entire sales funnel (from cold approach to pitching to preparing RFQ’s).

The sales objectives of People Intouch are clear: structural and quantified growth in the number of customers. Consultative sales and result orientation are competencies that must be in your genes!


People Intouch is a group of young, passionate and highly educated professionals. Every day they help multinationals in tracking down and preventing misconduct. In order to do this, they have developed the SpeakUp® system. SpeakUp® makes it possible for employees of these multinationals to anonymously report misconduct and unethical behavior in their native language, 24/7/365 days per year. Not only does SpeakUp® offer the opportunity to report these wrongdoings, it also facilitates a dialogue between the reporter and the recipient, while guaranteeing the anonymity of the reporter. This enables employees to report wrongdoings happening in their department directly to headquarter level, without having to fear retaliation. People Intouch’s goal is to hereby create a speak up culture, in which everyone feels safe and listened to.

People Intouch has been working to accomplish this goal for the past 15 years, making them a true expert in the field of compliance, ethics and fraud. People Intouch has the ambition to further expand its leading position worldwide, to enlarge its 'thought leadership' in the field of misconduct reporting and to ambitiously grow its turnover over the next years.

The core values of the company are:

  • Be a partner
  • Strive for excellence

  • Have fun

You are a pro-active professional that wants to become a trusted advisor to your clients.

Together with your team you are impressed by every e-mail you send!
