We are looking for energetic young talents to join our team to launch a new startup in the financial services space. You will help us identify, engage, consult and sign-up retail outlets / small businesses across a wide spectrum of categories.

You should ideally be a recent graduate in a business-oriented diploma / degree, or someone looking to kick start a career in business development / sales. Any prior retail or contact center experience could be relevant.

You must be confident of your capabilities, and should not be shy to deal with people from all walks of life.

Above all else, be genuine =)

No divas, please.
