Our Client

From humble beginnings in Europe in the early 1940's, our client has grown to become one of the most well respected and recognised brands in lighting today. A genuine market leader with presence in more than 20 countries across the globe and over 2000 employees, they now sit at the top of the market as a brand synonymous with design and quality. This brand, quality and the solutions they offer clients make them a first choice for countless consultants, architects, Designers, contractors and end users across the globe. Thanks to a perfectly situated UK base in central London, a dedicated team of specialists who can contribute with everything from visualisation and project management to specialised applications, and an annual investment of over £1 Million into research and development, they have successfully doubled turnover through one of the worst recessions the country has seen, in the under 5 years, and continue to grow and an impressive, yet sustainable pace. This growth is the very reason for this position.

You and the role

Our client is not looking for someone to join them simply to "sell lighting". They are looking for a dynamic, hungry individual who can add something to their current team of talent, and further strengthen an already market leading brand. The successful candidate will need to be able to forge genuine, lasting relationships with customers and offer bespoke, tailored solutions to their needs on a project by project basis. You will need to demonstrate the ability to adapt to the demands of the various stake holders involved in a lighting project, right throughout the sales cycle. As such, our client are looking for candidates who have experience in the lighting industry and have a background of dealing with M+E consultants, Architects and Contractors.

You will need to be highly motivated as this is a highly autonomous role, and while you will have the full support of the back office, you won't have your hand held, and you will not be micro managed. As a business that are experiencing rapid, organic growth, they are looking for someone who is looking at their career long term, and wants to join a business where their career can progress on the back of their efforts.

If you this is you, we'd like to hear from you today.
