Full Time
This manufacturer of sub assemblies for the construction of one off production machinery solutions has a customer base of UK manufacturers that is the envy of their sector.

They wish to appoint a graduate trainee sales engineer to manage and develop the customer base. Once trained the role will be field/home based (drivers licence essential). The ideal candidate will be a mechanically related engineering graduate who is passionate about manufacturing.

The company has historically trained graduate engineers for this role with a great deal of success. The ideal trainee will be someone who is interested in people (maybe you have already a customer facing role) someone who is able to engage with intelligent decision makers (the customers are mostly senior engineers).

Nearly all of the company's sales engineers are driven achievement oriented graduates who were drawn to the business side of engineering.

The company does a lot of repeat work with customers and so relationship building skills and trustworthiness are key attributes. In nearly all cases the sale has to be specified with the customer and this is why we need an engineering graduate to do the role because in nearly every sale you do you will have to help the customer to solve an engineering problem in order to make a sale.

If you are a graduate engineer who is thinking about a career in business to business solutions selling then this is a great opportunity to get started for three reasons 1. The company are uncompromisingly ethical in how they work with customers (they want repeat business). 2. Graduates go through a very thorough training program. 3. Graduates are given an existing sales area with an established customer base usually including some household names from sectors such as Aerospace, white goods, Automotive or other major manufacturing sectors.
