A chance to join an exciting and successful company with a great reputation, rapidly expanding market share and the backing of a multi-billion pound parent company currently investing heavily to become the dominant player in the UK. They are looking to recruit a Sales Manager with previous exposure selling to the Construction Sector who has successful experience developing relationships with key national construction companies. This is a truly excellent opportunity with some fabulous career progression opportunities, due to the sheer amount of investment and aggressive market plans of the parent organisation. Don’t miss this chance to turbocharge your career.

Key Requirements

  • 10 years experience in a Field Sales Role
  • Good Mechanical Aptitude (formal qualifications not necessary)
  • A proven track record in Key Account Management

  • Identify and open routes to market in new sectors

The role will involve managing an existing client base of regional and national accounts selling industrial, health & safety and construction related products. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong connection with the construction sector as well as the ability to manage distributors.

As the product is mechanical in nature, some kind of mechanical aptitude is preferred - this doesn’t mean qualifications but prior sales experience or even the fact you tinker with cars or engines at the weekend.

Due to the parent company's investment, this role is laden with career progression opportunity with a successful candidate possibly to be developed to General Manager / Director level over the next 5 years. Opportunities like this don’t come up very often.

We thank all applicants who respond, but please be advised that only those short listed for interview will be contacted.
