Job Description

A fantastic Internal Sales Executive opportunity has arisen within a leading independent electrical wholesaler. 

The company specialise in selling a range of electrical components such as switches, wiring, cables, lighting and circuit breakers into a variety of industries such as electrical contractors and FM companies. 

SALARY: £20,000 - £35,000 plus bonus 

BENEFITS: Pension, holiday 

LOCATION: This is an internal position working from the office in Maidstone 

This role is a mixture of both new business and account management. You will be expected to self-generate your own leads via cold-calling, canvassing and your own network. 

You will need to adopt a highly consultative sales approach, conducting an in-depth needs analysis to fully understand the requirements of the customer and be able to offer relevant products to suit.

Along with looking to generate new business, you will also be expected to maintain relationships with existing accounts, looking for ways to promote and upsell additional products to ensure these accounts grow.

Your role will include dealing with incoming enquiries, drawing up quotations and updating relevant contact management systems as well as assisting with trade counter sales and warehouse duties when required. 

To be successful, you will have at least 3 years’ proven sales experience of selling electrical components and equipment, ideally with a network of contacts within the industry enabling you to make a strong impact, however this is not essential. You must be highly articulate, well-presented and commutable to the office in Maidstone on a daily basis.

Having strong electrical knowledge and a technical mind would be of huge benefit.
