Our Client is a global multi-million manufacturer of bespoke engineering products for applications throughout the defence, marine and related industries. This group of businesses currently have a turnover in excess of £1Billion and continue to expand via organic growth and acquisition. Due to major expansion, my client is looking for a dynamic sales winner who will focus on ‘spearheading’ their international sales growth strategy alongside the Group Sales Director.
This is the perfect opportunity for an experienced sales professional to further develop their career with a world-leading business and true engineering innovator.
They are looking for an outstanding individual who is driven and ambitious who can develop an international sales region. This will be a home-based position with regular travel throughout the sales region. We anticipate that you will travel 25% of the time, with key locations being India, Turkey, Italy, Germany, and the Middle East. As this is primarily a project-based sell, we do require the successful candidate to spend a couple of days each month working with the sales, manufacturing, and project teams at Head Office in the Midlands.
The successful candidate will be responsible for a portfolio of international customers within the marine, naval and defence industries and be expected to visit these customers on a frequent basis, with around 30% of your time reserved for client travel. We envisage that around 40% of your time will be dedicated to identifying & winning new customers with the remaining focusing on strategic account management. You will also assume the ‘senior’ position within the global sales team, acting as the bridging gap between the commercial team and the Sales Director. This will involve further accountability by offering your support, guidance and on-going coaching during the project sales process.
The successful candidate will have experience of selling engineering products or solutions and of winning INTERNATIONAL multi-million projects! We are open on the industry sector, but Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Automotive, Defence, Power or associated would be desirable. We are looking to speak with any candidate who aspires to be a Sales Leader (Sales Director or Commercial Director), current man-management is not essential but ‘leadership’ qualities are a MUST.
If you are successful in getting the job, we guarantee that you are going to love it. Why? For every 100 people that we recruit, 96 are still with their company 12-months later, and 94 are still there 2-years later. That speaks for itself.
