Senior Manager, Sales Enablement (Remote)

ICF is seeking a Sales Enablement Manager to join the Business Development Team in ICF's Energy Environment, and Infrastructure Group. As a Sales Enablement Manager, you be responsible for developing and executing a sales enablement strategy for our Utility Programs and Services (UPS) Division. You will work closely with the Business Development (BD) team, Divisional Leadership, and other key leaders in the organization to ensure the strategy aligns with the business objectives and growth goals of UPS. You will also collaborate with the Marketing, Proposal, and Delivery teams to create and deliver effective and engaging sales materials, proposal content, tools, and training that support the entire sales cycle. You will leverage your sales expertise, industry knowledge, and market insights to help ICF differentiate itself from the competition and win more business.

You will be an effective team leader and, importantly, a doer. You will roll up your sleeves and help in the creation of content and materials. You will bring great business judgment, a varied background in sales and marketing, and experience operating in the energy and utility industry. You are excited about helping to drive a culture of "insight sales" -- an approach where sellers use deep, research-based knowledge about the clients' business to challenge their thinking and offer innovative, value-added solutions. You are tech savvy and adept at using data-driven insights to communicate recommendations and paths forward. You love process and understand how process improvements can drive efficiency and reduce burdens on sellers and doers. You are passionate about advancing a world that is resilient and prosperous for all.

Whilst this is a remote position, occasional / ad-hoc travel to our Reston, VA, global headquarters will be required. Candidates residing within a commutable distance are, therefore, preferred.
