I am working exclusively with an award-winning sustainable packaging company as they look to recruit a new Sales Manager. This is a brilliant opportunity to join a socially and environmentally responsible business in a pivotal role and help them achieve their aim of doubling their turnover in the next five years.
The business has sustainability at its heart, so this provides a brilliant opportunity for a candidate that is passionate about the environment. The successful candidate will work closely with the Managing Director to shape the future direction of the business. Long term, based on success, there is the opportunity to become the Sales Director of the company.
The key responsibilities in the role can be split in to three main parts:
- Management of the existing office-based sales team. The team will need mentoring and coaching to develop a more pro-active approach
- Developing and winning new business. There are significant new business opportunities available, particularly within the retail market.
- Assisting the MD with commercial strategy including budgets and forecasting. This means full and total responsibility for the sales function
I am looking for an extremely confident sales professional with proven experience of managing and leading a sales team. I also need experience of selling in to one or more of the company’s key markets (Retail, Food Service and Wholesale) as well as a strong sense of commercial awareness which will be demonstrated on your CV. You will have a strong interest in sustainability and the environment – this will ensure you are passionate about the product range. Knowledge of the packaging industry would be ideal but is by no means essential.
