My client is the global market-leading manufacturer of industrial hydraulic systems and components, drives and controls and linear motion products. This particular division supplies directly to the industrial machinery applications and engineering OEM market place. Due to continued growth and restructure a fantastic opportunity has arisen to appoint a home based area sales manager covering the Midlands and surrounding areas.
As area sales manager you will be responsible for developing existing relationships with key OEM's on patch and developing business through the existing customer base while also targeting new business. Given the market leading status of my client most of your time will be servicing the existing client base however they are looking for a keen business developer to drive growth through these accounts. The industry consists of machinery applications and engineering and can range from, marine, food & beverage, power, chemical, aggregates and research and development. The route to market will consist of dealing at design level, purchasing, shop floor and up to director level where appropriate. A key part of this role will be getting involved at design level and specification.
The successful area sales manager will from an electrical or mechanical background either apprentice trained or degree level with a track record in sales with an engineered product preferably within hydraulics, pneumatics, valves, filtration however other product ranges will be considered. You may be looking to move into a sales position from an applications or design role for example. However the hunger to drive sales and go above and beyond essential for this market leader. The areas on patch include Birmingham, Leicester, Leicester, Peterborough, Rugby, Worcester, Stoke, Nottingham, milton keynes and surrounding areas. However my client is happy for candidates to travel from off patch so if you are based elsewhere please do not hesitate to apply or get in touch.
