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.
