The Company

The company is a truly global business and operates in every continent with a combination of manufacturing sites, head offices and subsidiaries strategically placed to service all its customers. The company manufactures high end machinery into core areas such as heavy industry and retail as well as the leading food and pharmaceutical producers.

The Role

Reporting to the senior management, you will be selling capital equipment primarily into FMCG manufacturing environments. Your role will be to strategically win and grow profitable business in line with the company's growth potential. Based from home, you will inherit an established region that has several accounts. These accounts will be a combination of large and profitable blue chip businesses, OEM's and SME's. Initially, the role will be focused on winning new business, ideally within the food and pharmaceutical sectors, then managing the project from start to finish with a view to retain these businesses as long term clients which you will then manage. You will also work closely with the After Sales team, passing each other qualified leads and potential opportunities. You will use your relationship and influencing skills to drive margin and develop lasting relationships with key companies within the sector representing this excellent brand.

New business aside, you will have added value to existing accounts highlighted by the accounts' growth in margin and turnover. A knowledge/understanding of the food manufacturers would be of value but not a requirement. With the ability to operate at all levels, you will be tenacious and hungry and be able to realise the career opportunities in this market leading business. This really is the ideal time to join the business as there is a real clarity in strategy for the short, medium and long term.
