Full Time
The Company:

* The Company is a well known and well respected, major UK manufacturer of innovative, high quality lighting solutions
* With over 35 years experience in the industry and a turnover upwards of £10Million, this is an excellent opportunity to join a well established, ever growing business
* Over the last few years, the company has grown in size significantly, and there has been large amounts of financial investment to ensure that this continues to be the case
* Due to their significant growth, there are always opportunities for the right individuals to move into more senior roles within the business

The Role:

* This is a home based role, where you will be selling the company's wide range of high quality, innovative lighting solutions across the West Midlands

* As an Area Sales Manager, you will be spending half of your time specifying products to Consultants, and the other half of your time selling to other areas such as Local Authorities, End Users, Contractors and Architects
* Whilst you will inherit small amounts of existing business, this is very much a new business role with about 80% of your target being fulfilled from new business revenue
* Initially, you will be looking to re open smaller, dormant accounts that have been neglected over the years, however as you grow into the role, you will be expected to hunt for much larger, more profitable accounts

The Ideal Person:

* It is essential that you have previous experience with Lighting products and have a good understanding of LED Lighting
* Ideally, you will have a proven track record selling to a number of the Routes to Markets, such as Consultants, End Users, Local Authorities, Architects or Designers
* You will be an outgoing and confident individual who is passionate about sales, ready to start a long and successful career within a supportive company
* Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written are essential in the role as you will be communicating with people across all levels
