At Exception, we are passionate about using cloud technology to enable organisations. Based in Edinburgh you’ll work with some of our top Consultants to ensure our markets have the best available digital services in Scotland. 

So, if you love winning new business and have experience in selling new technology services to the financial sector (ideally cloud services) then we'd like to hear from you. 

We'll provide you with an uncapped commission scheme, a great range of staff benefits and a great opportunity to develop your sales career - fast.

  • Excellent knowledge of the financial services market - not just banks, but the wider sector

As you'd expect you'll also have an excellent range of soft skills including influencing and communication.

In return we'll give you an uncapped commission scheme and a range of staff benefits including:

  • Contributory Pension Scheme (we match up to 5%)
