Recruitment? Up until recently that’s perhaps a word that scares more people than it excites. Though with the changing fortunes of the commercial world, the advances in hybrid working, and ultimately the attitude shift from employers to its importance, it’s now one of the most lucrative areas for any candidates working in media sales.

The role will be a hybrid of managing inbound and existing recruitment accounts, and making contact with potential advertisers seeking staff in their sector. The role would suit somebody money motivated, organised, pro-active, and comfortable working with CRM systems. Whilst they would love any applicants to come from recruitment sales backgrounds, they’re flexible in considering candidates from any sales background in media agency side or inhouse, recruitment agencies or any wider sales role with the a similar set of day to day duties. Though candidates without recruitment media backgrounds would not come in at the upper end of the base salary range, but could achieve this through completing their internal sales training courses. The company operates a hybrid working set up, where you can be based from their exclusive and central location once a week, and 4 days from home. So the successful candidate can be based within London or outside such as Hertfordshire, Essex, Bucks, Berks, though candidates located within the city will also of course be considered.

Are you managing a small team for a high-end Brand that’s distributed via trade and through independent and small chain consumer retailers? Perhaps you’re got a glass ceiling, and need to move roles to take the step up? Are you responsible for £10m+ UK sales, ambitious, hands on, and keen to take a role not only offering you the jump you need but future growth opportunities as well? If you answered yes to these questions then you could have the base level of experience we need as a candidate for a role with one of the UK’s most exciting homegrown brands in the home/electrical sector. A company with products that blow most others out of the water on design and back it up with market leading reliability and performance. The opportunity we have is heading up a team of 3 regional salespeople across the UK, whilst simultaneously having responsibility for the entire UK distribution network consisting of the likes of Edmundson, CEF, Rexel and many more, an extensive network of independent B2C retailers and small chains, and a variety of specialist ecommerce businesses. Your role will be simple, own and improve the UK’s overall performance, whilst supporting, developing and growing the UK sales team. The role is very hands on, and as such we need a commercially minded manager, keen to graft and get hands on with all the routes to market in the UK, closing deals, breaking down doors and maximising returns and service. Somebody who can work cross functionally with the project and specifications team supporting them with bids and tenders and managing sales through the distribution network, whilst driving referral business and further key large brand projects in housing and hospitality.

You must come from a home focused built in interior product so Kitchen, Bedroom Bathroom (KBB), fixtures such as wall accessories/lighting,  door handles, bells, security are all options provided it’s premium high-end of the range. You must have existing management experience of at least 2 people, but we’re not looking for candidates that have worked above this pay grade in strategic roles taking a step back. This is a player manager role, best suited to an upcoming UK sales specialist, keen to make their mark for another brand. The role offers an executive level package, car, bonus etc and will need to be based at least one day a week out of their office just outside of London, as such candidates must be located no further north than the midlands, and happy spending some time in their office.

Our client is a leading and well-respected agricultural machinery business, holding well over 50% of the UK market share for their specialist product suite. Due to continued growth and strong sales figures, they seek to employ a Sales Manager/Account Manager to head up the relationships with some of their key OEM customers. After joining you will be managing direct technical customers initially  (manage incoming end-users requests), then small and medium size accounts (external account management). And finally key account management and sales management in the OEM arm of the business, dealing direct with the agriculture machinery manufacturing businesses either in the UK or Ireland. In order to succeed, you will ideally have an agricultural machinery background in either sales, engineering or even purchasing/buying, though candidates not coming directly from sales may need to join at a lower level in the first instance before moving up. Alternatively they would consider candidates from a farming background with sales ability, or a different related industry such as HGV, Off Road/Trailers in a technical/mechanically focussed sales position. A degree is not required and we invite applications from candidates with varying levels of experience, as the role could equally suit a more experienced candidate looking for a locally based opportunity.   Initially the role is 100% office based and over time will gradually develop into 50/50 split between travel/field and office. This role would suit anyone based in Nottingham, Newark, Lincoln, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Grantham, Sleaford or Mansfield. This is an exciting role, with a recognised and respected global organisation that has a clear and forecast career path into sales management.
