Sales Consultant

You will own the entire sales value chain from sourcing, running discovery with our professional services teams, vendor and customer management, through to negotiation and close.

Accel is a medium sized System Implementor with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.  Recently rebranded in 2020, Accel has taken on an exciting new direction of blending Cyber Security with a long-standing capability in eCommerce System Implementation, to deliver “Secure Commerce,” to its customers.  eCommerce platforms are in the top five of the most vulnerable and penetrated digital platforms – we believe these environments must be built and maintained with Security at the forefront rather than an after-thought.  Accel’s Services are three-fold:
