The Role

Selling products to the auto/electrical market, it would be desirable to have some experience within a previously similar role and/or exposure to working with vehicle electrics however, this is not essential, as the electrical /wiring knowledge can be taught within a reasonable period of time.
It is essential that you will be able to demonstrate levels of efficient planning and organization, due to the size of the territory to be covered. The current customer base is made up of approximately 250 companies, with approximately 40 of these contributing the main part of the territory’s annual volume.

Commitment and enthusiasm will be key criteria for the person who fills this role, along with a positive understanding and acceptance of the ongoing need for account development within existing and ‘new prospective customers’ across all main sectors within the emergency services market.
Academic qualifications are not as important as 'hands on' ability and genuine dynamism within such a role. However, for the purpose of career development and management succession within the group, a level of preference may be shown towards previous qualifications achieved.
