I am currently working with one of the leading distributors who provide interior solutions to the construction industry. Our client is looking for a Area Sales Manager to cover Central Bealt / East Scotland.

As the Area Sales Manager you will build productive and profitable relationships between house builders, main contractors and sub-contractors in the area. The role will include developing the territory, maintaining strong relationships with existing clients ensuring you maximise business, as well as establishing and building new relationships.

Candidates must be articulate, numerate, well presented and able to negotiate at all levels from site manager to senior buyer. A self-starter, who requires the minimum of supervision, has a persuasive manner and who thrives on a challenge. An organised, enthusiastic team player, if you have knowledge of the industry and our products then that is highly desirable but not essential.
