DLA Piper has an International Key Client Programme, which is aimed at serving, managing and developing our firm’s key clients. Our growth ambition resulted in a requirement for a Key Account Manager.
We are looking for a professional with the ability to contribute to the development of a selection of our Firm’s International Key Clients and support the wider DLA Piper team in realizing our team and Firm’s ambitions.
As a Key Account Manager, you will work alongside the Client Relationship Partners (CRPs), and wider DLA Piper teams, focussing on client development, relationship management and service delivery activities directed to one or more of the Firm's most significant clients. Besides liaising with the various internal stakeholders you will be client facing. The role requires a proactive approach, good business development skills and confidence in front of senior clients, partners and wider (business services) teams with the purpose to develop a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship with the client and ensuring the client is best served.
You will join a (virtual) team of international Account Managers and report directly to the international Head of Client Programmes. You are based in the Netherlands and will therefore work alongside the colleagues in the Amsterdam Marketing & Business Development (MBD) team. The Amsterdam MBD team consists of six colleagues that deliver a broad range of key marketing, communications and business development services for the Amsterdam office, designed to grow the Firm's market positioning, revenue and profitability. The MBD team works closely with the lawyers, notaries and tax advisors to explore new business opportunities and market DLA Piper and its individuals, externally.
