We’re working with a marketing leading manufacturer in the construction and engineering sector, as they seek an experienced B2B Sales Executive to join the team. Ideally candidates will have a technical sales background and experience within the construction, engineering, marine, manufacturing sectors, though candidates with confident sales ability and no technical sales experience will also be considered.
The roles are hybrid inbound/outbound but as the business is so established and a market leader in their field, for the first 3 – 6 months any outbound work is likely going to be to previous customers and warm as opposed to cold, and there’s every chance you could only be working on the inbound side for the majority of the time. This said they do encourage staff to get out and meet clients in person once established within the business, and pool cars are available for this.
The role would be office based for the first 6 months as due to the learning curve with the products and the technical nature of what they do it’s essential you’re amongst the team whilst working. However some hybrid working can be considered post successful completion of probation, should this be desirable longer term.
