Our client are a fast growing, award winning FMCG business.
Working as part of an expanding sales team, this is an exciting opportunity to join an established team during a period of tremendous growth.
Taking on your own territory and assisted by a dedicated Sales Support, you will work across the breadth of our customer base, including wholesale, retail, key accounts and international partners. Rather than a static product list and one prescribed way of selling, you are encouraged to use your individual approach and commercial awareness to adapt to the situation, meaning no two days are ever the same.
Managing your own diary and balancing the needs of existing and prospect accounts, you will be at ease networking, representing at our UK and international trade fairs and proactively seeking new business opportunities through customer visits and regular contact. You will be a strong negotiator and adept at matching the right product to the right customer at a price point that works for all involved - a fine balance which bodes well for a capable and promising field sales representative.
The successful candidate:
In order to succeed, you will show versatility and awareness of how to read a situation - you will be a true 'plate spinner’ and thrive in a busy environment where your time management skills and multi-tasking ability will help you succeed. You will embrace a challenge and not be afraid of hard work, relishing the opportunity to learn from those around whilst applying your own personal touch.
With so much going on, you need to be sharp, smart with an eagerness to learn. You will be a confident communicator and adaptable, thriving under pressure and motivated by results. You will be goal orientated and driven to achieve. You will be versatile and be able to demonstrate how you have thrived whilst working in a fast paced environment, ideally with FMCG products.
More than just an engaging presence, you will also need to have strong numerical skills (achieving at least a grade B in GCSE Maths) and to be able to apply these skills to ever changing situations. You must be able to operate strategically and think analytically - each deal you make will be underpinned by a combination of commercial understanding and customer requirement.
Experience within a commercial sales environment is necessary and you will be able to demonstrate a proven track record of new business wins and delivering account growth. As our client trades internationally, we’re keen to hear from people who have language skills or experience of living and working overseas. We would especially like to hear from people who are fluent in German.
