Technical Sales Engineer Hereford/Worcester/Gloucestershire £35,000 + £10K bonus + company car Mechanical engineering knowledge Commercial exposure Sales Experience Linear motion industry experience I am on the lookout for a technical sales engineer, preferably from a design engineer or project engineer background who is looking to move into a more sales focussed, on the road role. The position has become vacant due to expansion, the opportunity will be in the region of the Worcester/Gloucester and South Wales corridor of the UK. To be successful the candidate will need to use these engineering skills to identify customer's linear applications and have an ability to understand technical and budgetary requirements to specify the correct solution. The right candidate will therefore need to demonstrate a strong mechanical engineering knowledge and some engineering design experience would be beneficial. They must have the ability to recognise new application opportunities by questioning and understanding customer needs. Ideal candidates could already be selling a product in the transmission field from bearings, gearboxes, motors, machine components generally and of course, linear motion systems. The candidate could also be involved in automation / special machine sales. Ideally they should be working directly for the manufacturer, however, other engineering based fields can be relevant. The working practise of the Engineers is that they are generally out visiting customer's 4 days / week making on average 5 / 6 calls per day. There is not a strict control over the number of days that you are out; some weeks it may only be 3 days because they have picked up a good number of applications, in turn these will require reports and quotations to be produced. This is something that the Technical Sales Engineer is expected to carry out. Candidates will also be require to attend two Sales Meetings per year at Tiverton and they normally attach a training day to the Sales Meeting. They offer an extensive training programme, which, again can be outlined at any future meeting. If this sounds like you then please get in touch with Jess on 01785 875 228 or send your CV .
