Area Sales Manager – Premium Home Goods
We’re working with a specialist brand in the interior design and home electronics sector, currently seeking an area sales manager to take on a role covering the Midlands, Wales and SW of England. This is a field-based role, so location is flexible, but given the areas it’s covering, somebody based in the midlands, or south into Worcestershire or North Wales would be ideally located. Candidates will ideally be coming with a mixture of both wholesale distributor experience, and retail, as the current position covers around a split of 50/50 in terms of the performance in the region.
This company are a global leader and premium branded supplier in the interior design and home electronics sector, they work with wholesale distributers and also a wide range of consumer focused retail outlets and ecommerce. The role will be focused around growing the relationships with the retailers and wholesalers in your region, implementing POS schemes for showrooms, training and product demos, attending exhibitions, dealing with customer queries, and ultimately focusing on the growth and performance of your region. It’s a varied role that would suit a candidate that’s got a mixture of experience working with the above wholesalers but also retailers. The product experience is less important though ideally premium level as opposed to low cost, candidates dealing with other home interior products such as kitchen or bathroom, lighting, flooring and furnishings would be of most interest.
This is not a new role, the area is a high performing region and taking over from a candidate that left the business to pursue a different career choice, but was with the company for 5 years. It’s a great business, with fantastic products, and a well established and popular brand.
