A fantastic Field Sales Executive position has arisen within a leading supplier of Plant and Construction machinery. 

My client specialises in selling a range of Plant and Construction machinery such as Diggers, Dumpers and Rollers in a variety of industries.

BENEFITS:     Car, laptop, mobile, pension, holiday 

LOCATION:    This is a field-based role covering the Sussex area 

This role will be a mixture of new business and account management. You will be taking over an already well-established area that turns over circa £2million. Your role will be to bring on a range of new customers as well as nurture and grow the existing accounts. Your customer base will be a mixture of Construction companies, Plant hire companies and Ground Works companies.

In complete control of your own diary, you will be working from home, self-generating your own leads via cold calling and canvassing to book in appointments as well as ensuring regular visits are carried out to existing customers to increase spending in these accounts.

A highly consultative sales approach is required, conducting an in-depth needs analysis to fully understand the demands of the customer, showing a range of relevant machinery to suit the client, negotiate hire purchase contracts and close the sale. 

The successful candidate will have at least 3 years’ proven B2B field sales experience selling either large capital equipment such as forklift trucks, material handling or farming machinery or have experience in selling into construction companies, ground workers and Plant hire companies.

You must be both new business focussed as well as have the ability to nurture existing accounts, be dynamic, well-presented and highly motivated.
