Job description

Area Sales Manager (North West)

Location: Manchester (Hybrid, primarily fieldwork).

Salary: £40K - £45K base + Commission.

We're working exclusively with an industry leader that designs, manufactures and distributes a range of precision-engineered hardware solutions that bring furniture and home-improvement projects to life. From soft-close hinges to sliding and folding door systems, and drawer solutions to name but a few, their stylish innovations inspire designers and architects, and have re-defined the capabilities of the furniture and appliances we use every day.

We are looking for an accomplished, business development-focused, Area Sales Manager (ASM) to become an integral part of the UK team. The ASM will be responsible for sales in the North West of England and North Wales with a primary focus on the western half of the M62 corridor. They will maintain and grow business with a significant portfolio of existing customers, as well as hunt and convert new business with new customers.

The team is proud and protective of its human-centric culture, therefore they aren't looking for a bullish, fast-paced sales individual, but a brand ambassador who will represent the brand professionally and positively, creating and nurturing long-term relationships with existing and prospective accounts.

The Person:

  • Accomplished sales/business development professional. Minimum of 3 years' sales experience.
  • Must be highly commercially aware and have a growth mindset.
  • Must have the ability to gain, retain and employ technical knowledge to assist customers.
  • Experience of supplying goods to B2B customers is essential. B2C experience is beneficial.
  • Experience of the furniture fittings market is not essential but preferred.
  • Team player who can work with a multi-national team to deliver excellent customer service.
  • Trustworthy individual, with integrity and initiative.
  • Open-minded with a will to learn.
  • Highly computer literate. Experience of working with SalesForce or similar CRM systems is beneficial.
  • Positive, creative, self-starter, who is comfortable working independently.
  • Excellent relationship-building skills.

The Role:

  • The Area Sales Manager will be responsible for the day-to-day relationship with their customers.
  • They will manage their time and prioritise their visit schedule to secure profitable business.
  • The ASM will work closely with the Internal Sales Team to process orders and deliver excellent customer service.
  • They will utilize in-depth knowledge of company products and client requirements to develop opportunities with new and existing customers.
  • The ASM will understand the current market landscape to ascertain competitive advantages and create strategic plans for advancement.
