A fantastic opportunity has become available to join my client as an Account Manager! The full-time position offers a great commission structure, a generous bonus scheme and other various incentives as well as a structured promotion ladder. Due to location, own transport is required but free parking is provided on site.

Initially, the role will primarily involve generating new business and building your own customer base. This will involve:
  • Carrying out desktop research to source new customers
  • Cold calling potential customers
  • Sourcing stock and obtaining prices
  • Producing quotes
  • Confirming orders with suppliers and to customers
  • Monitoring and chasing stock

As the role progresses, once you have built your customer base, the emphasis will shift to managing customer accounts, which will include:
  • Providing a high level of Customer Service to existing customers
  • Processing new orders
  • Forming excellent working relationships with buyers
  • Negotiating best prices from suppliers
  • Visiting top customers once a year alongside the Business Development Manager
  • Visiting other customers as required

The ideal candidate will need to be self-motivated, highly organised, used to working to targets and possess good people and communication skills.

Account Management and Customer Service experience would be beneficial for the role, however, this is not a necessity provided you can demonstrate the ability to negotiate and close deals.
