A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a graduate to join one of our key clients, an American owned engineering company based in Scotland & Leeds, as an external sales executive.

One of the company’s most successful sales executives has recently been promoted to head up sales in the Middle East which has left his area, Leeds & North East, needing a new sales person.

The role is split 70% account management and 30% new business development. You will spend approximately 1 day in the office in Leeds, West Yorkshire making appointments and catching up on paperwork and the remaining will be spent on the road visiting existing clients & prospecting for new business.

The majority of the products sold by my client are of the shelf products however you will also be involved with larger projects where initial orders could be in the thousands.

My client can offer a comprehensive 6 month training package to ensure you have the right tools to succeed within this company. You will be working alongside the incumbent sales executive learning about the products, about the company and about his clients. There maybe even a trip to the head office in America as part of your training package!!

As sales roles go this is a great opportunity to follow on from someone who has been a huge success with the company and to follow in his footsteps.

My client is offering a basic of 21k plus VW Golf company car and a commission package that will probably gain you an extra 5k in your first full year.

My client is looking for a graduate looking for their first opportunity to get into a sales role.
You must have a current UK driving and live within a 10 mile radius of Leeds city centre.

Whilst a technical degree/interest is not essential it certainly would help you in quickly becoming successful with this company.

We are not looking for someone who has 'Got the Sales t-shirt', sales experience is not essential in this role.

We will be looking for graduates who have done something out of the ordinary during their time in education whether it be voluntary, work related or some outstanding personal achievement.
