We are seeking a dynamic, passionate and charismatic Area Sales Team Manager to join our team on behalf of a leading kitchen appliances client, with a presence in some of the UK's best-known department and specialist kitchenware stores.

This team has been in place for almost a decade, generating great sales and memorable experiences for consumers - and we are now seeking an Area Sales Team Manager/Territory Manager to cover the London and South East area.

A love of coffee would be a distinct benefit, and prior experience in a similar role is a requirement - ideally in a department store/high end retail environment.

The role will involve:

· Visiting stores in your region, working alongside and delivering a high standard of coaching and mentoring to product demonstrators in your team

· Supporting the annual promotional schedule in your stores, managing communication with in-store staff, stock and POS distribution and implementation, and briefings to territory team

· Communicating with the relevant management and staff in all stores - developing contact list for each location

· Proactively identifying areas for improvement, actively assessing productivity of both demonstrators and stores

· Planning and co-ordinating training, from induction through to continued development and briefings on new products

· Completing weekly reports, as well as providing ad hoc feedback to both agency and brand partners and attending monthly team leader meetings

· Achieving quarterly and annual targets

The successful candidate will possess:

· Proven sales experience, preferably with a similar product/retail space

· Impeccable organisational skills

· Attention to detail, detecting what works well and what doesn't in each store and advising accordingly to deliver the best possible results

· Ability to provide accurate reporting, analysing your data and identifying poor performers

· Ability to resolve problems and provide solutions

· Good flexibility with visiting stores - requirements may change on an adhoc basis.

· A full driving license and access to your own vehicle.

This region includes stores up to Leicester and Norwich, down to Brighton, with Oxford the most westerly - however, the majority of stores covered are concentrated in the Greater London and Home Counties areas. Travel and expenses are covered for this role, but a base in the area is necessary in order to make this most efficient.This role involves working five days per week, with regular weekend work in line with sales activity.

This is an exciting opportunity to make your mark in a brand with an international reputation for quality and passion - so please apply with your CV to register your interest.

The first stage of the application process is to apply online.
