Full Time
The Company:

* The Company is part of a major International Business and represent an expanding part of the technology that effects everyday living
* They are an extremely well known wholesaler within the Lighting and Electrical industry with an excellent reputation across the country
* As a highly successful Business they have grown from strength to strength and are now looking to add to the team, this is a wonderful opportunity for the right person
* Located in a great establishment, this is a great location with a small team of highly driven and successful individuals where you will be proud to work
* The product range comes from the biggest manufacturers in the Market Sector, with fantastic build quality, the Company has the ability to complete most orders directly from stock holding

The Role:

* Based out of the company's Cheltenham Branch, you will predominantly be taking inbound calls and using your skills to turn enquiries into sales
* You will also be doing a smaller amount of outbound calls and "cold calling" to generate business from both new and dormant accounts
* Whilst you will spend most of your time on the phone dealing with inbound enquiries, you will spend the rest of your time proactively calling on both Contractors and End Users to generate new business sales
* You will also be required to spend smaller amounts of your day on the trade counter if needed, however this will not be your primary role
* Saturday work will be required once a month, and whilst necessary, this will be considered and paid as overtime
* General tasks include dealing with quotes, stock enquiries and any other inbound questions, with the view to generate revenue for the Branch

The Ideal Person:

* It is essential that you have at least a small amount of sales experience, whether that be face to face or over the phone and have a track record of hitting targets
* Ideally you will have a strong understanding of electrical products, however the company is open to seeing candidates without that experience, providing strong sales skills are apparent
* The idea candidate will already have experience of working within an electrical wholesaler, but again the company is very open on background
* Problem solving must be a strength of yours, as the role revolves around dealing with questions, queries and problems
* You must be a hungry and driven individual, with the ability to build and develop strong and long standing relationships with clients to meet and exceed sales targets
