Job Description

A fantastic Sales Estimator opportunity has arisen within an exciting and expanding powder coating company. 

My client specialises in a range of powder coating solutions such as metal spraying, finishing and non-slip coatings into Metal Fabricators, Manufacturers and Sheet Metal Companies. 

SALARY:         £30,000 - £35,000 basic plus commission 

BENEFITS:     Holiday, pension 

LOCATION:    This is an internal role, working from the office near Gravesend 

This role will be a mixture of dealing with enquiries via telephone and email from both existing clients as well as from potentially new clients. Your role will be to work from specifications to accurately estimate and produce quotations.

You will then be responsible for negotiating with the client, closing the sale and submitting invoices and ensuring sales systems are kept up to date. 

A second part of this role will be to pro-actively look to source new business and upcoming projects. This will be through cold-calling, researching via trade media and the internet as well as referrals and recommendations.

A highly consultative sales approach is required, targeting Metal Fabricators and Sheet Metal Companies to identify potential up and coming projects, understand their needs and any current issues they are having and closing the sale. 

To be successful for the role, you must have a proven sales track record selling into Metal Fabricators or Sheet Metal Companies. Having experience of estimating would be highly advantageous but is not essential.

You must be articulate, with an excellent telephone manner, be able to work autonomously and be commutable to the office in Gravesend on a daily basis.
