About the role

Trineo is evolving and maturing as a company, and our people are of paramount importance. Cue the role of a Lead, Salesforce. A Lead typically has limited management experience but has the capability to grow into a great manager and will be supported in the journey. As a Lead, you will set clear expectations, goals, and accountabilities for your team. You will be responsible for your team's overall productivity and collective impact. This is your opportunity to help shape the future and ensure the vision is effectively communicated to the team.

This role reports to the Head of Consulting and sits within our Salesforce Practice. It has two core focusses:

  • Servant Leadership. Nurturing, supporting, and coaching a team of up to three direct reports. This is typically 20-30% of the role.
  • Billable work. A large component of the day-to-day life of a Lead is spent building and doing things for our clients. This could be within a functional, UX/UI, or engineering tract and is typically 70-80% for the role. You will plan your billable targets with your line manager and recognise that they may flex up or down.
