Area Sales Manager South East
Our client is a global manufacturer of LED Luminaires, Lamps, Ballasts and Lighting components. Born in the USA, the European arm of the business was started in 1995 and has grown to be a market leader in its field with huge appeal to the End User, Contractor, Specifier and Electrical Wholesale markets. With recent strengthening of their senior leadership team adding significant industry knowledge and direction, as well as massive investment and product development, this brand is now set to become a leading name in its field. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for someone who is genuinely motivated by a challenge, and has hunger and ambition. Due to exciting developments within the company we are recruiting for an Area Sales Manager to drive business in the South East territory (Surrey, Sussex and Kent). The role will be primarily growing business within the Wholesale market, targeting Nationals, Independents and Buying Groups. It will also involve driving business by targeting End Users and Contractors, and ultimately pulling that business through the distributors. The role requires someone who is well connected in the world of Electrical Distributors in the South East, and understands their complexities. You will need to be able to establish relationships at branch, and regional levels. Experience in LED Lighting sales is highly preferable, although our client will consider candidates without this, as long as they have a proven track record in selling to the Electrical Wholesalers on the territory. Our client is looking for a high level, hungry sales person who is highly motivated, to get on board and make a real name for themselves within the company. If you class yourself as a high calibre sales person and are looking to step up and take on a new challenge, and an opportunity to further progress your career within a global organisation, get in touch and tell us why you are the person for the job. To be considered you will need to be experienced in Lighting sales and have a background selling to End Users, Contractors, Specifiers and Electrical Wholesalers. In return our client offers an excellent package and an opportunity to join a growing business that not only invests heavily in research and development of their product offering, but in their people too. Basic salary of up to £50,000 (dependant on experience) as well as excellent On Target Earnings and package.
