Field Sales Executive - Salon Software Solutions

Basic £24,000, OTE £40,000 + car allowance

My client is a market leading manufacturer of software which is used by hairdressing and beauty salons to manage appointments and customer information. They have a vacancy for a Field Sales Executive in Scotland so if you have field sales experience and have sold into retailers this could be a great opportunity.

The Role:

  • Selling appointment and salon management software into hair salons

  • Working to KPIs and revenue targets for the patch which will develop over the first 6 months

The Person:

  • Field sales experience is essential, ideally selling into the independent retail sector
  • Alternatively you could have field based sales experience in another sector but have worked within hairdressing industry previously
  • Software sales in a different environment could also be considered
  • Experience in new business generation is key as you don't manage the accounts once won, they would be looked after by an account manager
  • Great communication skills are needed and the ability to engage with potential clients on your first visit

The Package:

  • A basic salary of £24k is offered with an OTE first year of £38,500 but this will increase in year 2 with a full target
