Why the hell have they put one there?
You don’t need that many heads on this one. Clearly haven’t even been to site. Lazy sods”
Sound familiar?
It usually happens when the design team either can’t, or more likely don’t want to leave the office. They’d rather leave it up to you to sort out to make the amendments. Or even worse, they don’t even bother to look at it in the first place. They just give it to the small works dept to “have a go”. Doesn’t help you though does it, and you could probably do it better right?
Especially with your background and experience in the industry.
In fact you could save everyone time and money, and a lot of aggravation from engineers who are likely to kick off because it hasn’t been specified or costed up correctly.
You can already do a take-off from a drawing or put a system together from a tender pack. You would even be able to explain it all to a client. Let’s face it, you’re used to doing that anyway.
Well if you can do all that then you could open up a whole new chapter in your career. Adding a whole new string to you’re already impressive bow. You can move away from the tools, swap your van for a car and not have to worry about getting back in time for football on Saturday, or have to shoot off Sunday morning because the guys didn’t get the system commissioned in time for sign off.
Making the transition from engineering to sales can be quite daunting. But with the amount of support you will receive from the design team, training you will get from the office staff and not to mention the full backing of the wonderful MD (who is really down to earth by the way) you can’t really go wrong.
And for putting in all your hard work and effort, you could earn a really, really great salary in the process.
Something else worth mentioning is if it doesn’t quite work out, or you feel after giving it a really good go sales isn’t really for you, then you will probably fit nicely into the business somewhere else.
Win win right?
About the company
Ok so they may not be the largest company you’ve ever heard of but that’s because they don’t need to shout about who they are and what they do - By the way they are very good at what they do.
They have been going from strength to strength and growing at a steady pace for about 11 years – And now part of an even larger group, you may have heard of them, PTSG.
They cover the whole of the UK, looking after schools, hotels and councils along with an impressive list of clients – Wembley, NHS, Mars, Bupa, Berkley Homes, Reading Football club to name a few.
Based in Maidstone in Kent this company has ambition to match yours. Now part of a larger group, they have the financial backing and support to really challenge the bigger players.
But it isn’t about them.
About the job
In this trusted and senior role and as stated, you will have the backing of a great design and support team.
You will need to manage yourself and be capable of bringing in new business from both existing, and potentially new clients but you will have the opportunity to really transform the business and as the first member of a newly formed sales department, you will be spearheading this companies plans for growth.
With lots of warm leads, enquiries and client base to go at along with your own efforts, you really have the opportunity to earn a great living and work with some really nice people along the way.
Yes, there are targets. But this is a sales role, there’s always targets. But your backing your own ability. That’s how you will earn the biggest salary.
At the minute your potential new colleagues are already hitting around 35% of the overall company target, they just need you to come and take care of the rest. And not because they can’t do it without you (well they can’t do it without you) but it’s because they just don’t have the capacity to do any more.
They really are a good bunch of people and you would like it - which apart from the job is why you should join them.
