Job Description

  • Trainee Account Manager – Field Sales
  • Great opportunity for an aspiring sales superstar
  • Full training provided 
  • Booming supplier to multiple industries 
The Company
  • Highly successful distribution business supplying clients across a wide range of industry verticals (putting them in an enviably strong position to stay stable during COVID)
  • Friendly, down-to-earth family business with an impressive 30 year history of successfully servicing their loyal client base  
  • Supportive and collaborative team environment (instead of the usual ‘dog-eat-dog’ world of sales)!
The Role
  • Field based Account Management and Business Development (approximately 70/30 split)
  • Taking over a well-established, warm territory of between 120-180 current customers across multiple industries
  • It’s a 100% field based role (half day Monday office based for sales team ramp up and collaboration)
  • This is a results based role with no set activity KPI’s – you will manage your own time with the objective of providing exemplary customer service to your existing accounts while also identifying new business opportunities. 
  • Your performance will be measured on revenue growth within your territory (from growing existing accounts and bringing on new clients)
  • You will be brought on as a Junior/Trainee Account Manager so you will be set up for success with ample training, support and development.  Long-term career progression opportunities will be available as your skills develop. 
The Successful Candidate
  • This company loves training and developing enthusiastic and ambitious junior sales people! Industry experience isn’t important, but you will need a background in customer service or inside sales or similar.  It’s a great opportunity to get out from behind the desk and progress your career into field sales
  • They hire based on motivation and willingness to learn.  This role will suit someone who wants training and development with the ambition of having a career as a high performing sales professional
  • You will be self-motivated and highly driven to succeed.  They won’t be looking over your shoulder or micro-managing you, so you need to be proactive in nature and be driven to succeed   
  • You will need to have a passion for meeting people and delivering the very best level of customer service 
  • Your communication and presentation skills will have to be top-notch and adaptable to a wide range of different clients
Why Apply
  • Great opportunity to step up into a field sales role and truly advance your sales career
  • You will receive all the training and development you need to be successful
  • It’s a genuinely supportive team environment where everyone celebrates each other’s successes.  You will have the opportunity to team up with experienced sales people to help grow your accounts. 
  • You won’t be micro-managed – you will be in control of your own schedule and activity.  It’s all about the results!
  • You will inherit a great patch of existing accounts
  • The business is booming so it’s a great time to join! 
  • Salary up to $75K plus fully maintained company vehicle and tools of the trade (phone, laptop etc) 
  • You will get paid a quarterly bonus based on achieving your (realistic) targets
My client wants to hire this role IMMEDIATELY!  The process is fast moving so apply today if you don’t want to miss out!
