Package: Realistic OTE in excess of 40K (including attractive basic salary – negotiable on experience and uncapped commission scheme), company car (or allowance), smartphone, I-Pad & excellent PLC benefits
Sector: Packaging distribution
We, the UK’s largest packaging distributor have an exciting opportunity for an experienced sales professional to come and represent us. You will join a successful team based at our Fareham site and enjoy a varied territory sales role. We are a committed equal opportunities employer that champions ‘dignity in the workplace’. Our focus is to provide customers with fully integrated and innovative packaging solutions, augmented by outstanding customer service. Appointing and nurturing sales talent across our business is key to our continued growth.
The Sales Executive Role
Reporting to the Manager of our Fareham site, this is very much a ‘full sales cycle’ role. You can expect to manage a portfolio of existing customers, whilst focussing dedicated time to new business generation. An ability to switch focus and dedicate adequate time to both aspects will ultimately dictate your success in meeting agreed goals and targets. You will thrive in building relationships with key decision makers and stakeholders across a range of customer accounts, proactively reviewing needs and acting on opportunities to present fresh solutions.
Sales Executive Key Responsibilities
Do you have the correct profile?
We would love to hear from you if you are an experienced B2B sales professional (ideally minimum of 1 year field based/customer facing experience). You will be an effective negotiator, with the ability to pro-actively build strong relationships via first class communication and influencing skills. You will enjoy genuinely ‘adding value’ to customers as your prior experience will already have seen you selling a solution. Selling with integrity, you will be accustomed to delighting customers and be able to illustrate a recent track-record of success in meeting sales targets. We would ask that you live ‘on patch’ (within one of the stated territory areas) and have a valid UK driving licence. Whilst packaging sales experience isn’t essential, it would be a bonus of course.
We offer a competitive basic starting salary along with a significant profit linked bonus scheme, commission, company car (or allowance), smartphone & I-Pad. We additionally offer flexible employee benefits incorporating the following: 25 days annual leave (rising up to 27 days with service plus all bank holidays), additional holiday purchasing scheme, contributory pension & employee discount scheme. Macfarlane Group is also dedicated to maximising every employee’s potential, by providing career development plans and pathways in an environment that fosters personal growth and continuous improvement.
