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 Senior Sales Coordinator Role  
Sales Coordination is a key part of what we do, providing the crucial ‘bridge’ between our customers and our internal purchasing, logistics and external field sales teams. This fast-paced, multi-faceted role will see you handling inbound customer enquiries and processing sales orders. In addition you will assist the external sales executives and generate some outbound activity to help develop customer spend and identify new opportunities. This position is wholly office based and focussed upon customer engagement. You will be focussed on understanding customer needs, to ensure opportunities are realised and first class service is provided at all times. On this occasion we are seeking to hire someone on a full time basis, working Monday to Friday.

  • Dealing with incoming customer queries and providing advice & solutions
  • Undertaking outbound activity to help identify and target new customers
  • Working closely with and supporting the external sales team
  • Administration of sales orders/quotations, ensuring customer delivery dates are met
  • Support Regional Business Manager with strategy implementation

Do you have the correct profile?
We know that this role will ideally suit an experienced internal sales person who can demonstrate a good track-record of success in a similarly fast paced position. That said, it’s often about character and personality. So if you fancy a fast paced & varied role where you can showcase your charisma in charming our customers and you’re not afraid to make outbound calls, we would love to hear from you. You will need to learn our internal systems (CRM etc.) but that goes for anyone and we will provide full training. It is however vitally important that you have a first class telephone manner (friendly and professional) coupled with strong administration skills. It also helps if you are commercially aware and target driven.
