Who we are

Hi, I’m Nats, VP Sales at Mention Me and I’m hiring! Before I tell you more about the role, here's a little bit about Mention Me and what we do.

We’ve delivered more than 5.5m referrals totalling over $2bn in revenue for our clients.

Now, our mission to make all brands think advocacy-first is stepping up a gear, and you might be just who we need to help us.

  • Works to negotiate and close the business around a compelling or critical event for predictable sales forecasting
  • Work closely with our Enterprise Client Team to ensure time to value and smooth handover of any new business opportunities to maximise chance of upsell/expansion
