Job Description

A fantastic Field Sales Executive opportunity has arisen within a leading manufacturer of bathroom and plumbing supplies.

SALARY:         £30,000 - £40,000 basic, plus OTE £5,000 - £10,000 

BENEFITS:     Car, fuel card, laptop, iPad, mobile, pension, holiday 

LOCATION: This is a field-based position covering London and the South East of England 

This Field Sales Executive position is a mixture of new business and account management. You will inherit a range of Merchant accounts and be expected to grow and nurture these whilst hunting for projects with Plumbing Contractors to gain specification to then “back-sell” via the Merchant network. 

In complete control of your own diary, spending approximately 4 days a week out on the road visiting clients and looking for new business and 1 day a week working from home to complete any administrative duties. 

A highly consultative sales approach is required, conducting an in-depth needs analysis with the Contractors to identity relevant products that fit specifications and discussing time frames. From here, you will then “back-sell” to the Contractor via an approved Merchant. This will include agreeing prices and margins with the Merchant in exchange for bringing them the Contractor business. 

To be successful for this role, you must have at least 3 years’ proven sales experience of dealing with both Plumbers Merchants and Plumbing Contractors. 

You must be both adept at hunting for new business as well as nurturing an existing account base. You must have a full UK driving licence and be willing and able to cover London and the South East.
