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, continually reviewing needs and acting on opportunities to present fresh solutions.

We would ask that you live ‘on patch’ (within one of the stated territory areas) and have a valid UK driving license. Whilst packaging sales experience isn’t essential, it would be a bonus of course.
