Our client is a leading and well-respected agricultural machinery business, holding 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 Representative, with a defined career path and the potential of going to Sales Manager within 12 months, if certain touchpoints and a high level of technical learning and application can be achieved.
In this role you will deal with their, building up the knowledge to then move over to the OEM arm of the business dealing direct with the agriculture machinery manufacturing businesses in the future.
After initially 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.
In order to succeed, you will ideally have an agricultural machinery background in either sales, engineering or even purchasing/buying. However alternatively they would consider candidates from a farming background with sales ability, or a different industry 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.
