It may be necessary to also use other functions within ACT that could relate to any on-going marketing activities. General up-keep of the ACT database is essential and new or amended contact/company information must be updated.
  • Assist with managing the group ‘sales’ inbox to ensure all enquiries are dealt with efficiently. This must be done correctly to ensure that mail is not duplicated or missed, and that any emails from this inbox that cannot be dealt with are passed on to the correct person.
