The Role / Responsibilities:

Moody’s is launching a new Sales Rotation Program that will provide foundational exposure within our Commercial organization allowing participants to better understand our data, our processes, our products and how they relate across various functions to build a pipeline of well-rounded client facing employees. This position is an excellent opportunity to join a diverse team and have immediate impact. The Moody's sales force has an inclusive, team-oriented sales culture that values both collaboration and results.

The Moody’s Sales Rotation Program is a rotational training opportunity that enables recent graduates to continue to develop their commercial skills, while learning our business and identifying their preferred career path. The program consists of up to four 6-month assignments, in either New York or London (hybrid in the office 2-3 days/week). Assignments will provide you with exposure across all of the Moody’s lines of business, providing program participants with a broad set of experiences and opportunities within our firm. As participants progress through their rotations they’ll build a solid foundation to become future leaders of the company.

Throughout the 2-year development program, participants are encouraged to explore their assignment preferences and try new things in each of their rotations. These preferences are taken into account when assignments are finalized, along with the needs of our business. Participants develop their skills through classroom training, on-the-job learning, and by receiving structured feedback and support from local mentors and a dedicated Program Manager. Participants will enter the program together with a cohort, providing a community to connect with starting on their first day.

Rotational assignments vary in terms of the commercial and sales operational skills required, but participants will each have an assignment in Sales Operations, Client Support, Marketing and Sales Development/Lead Generation. Final placement will be dependent on business needs and participant preference with a goal of moving into a client facing opportunity.
