  • Working closely with the Head of Finance and the Head of Supply Chain to improve order-fulfilment efficiency and customer service.
  • Managing all practical aspects of the UK sales office, to create a pleasant and productive sales environment. 
  • Working with the directors to deploy tools, systems, and ERP improvements to enhance the business operations.

Who The Company Are Looking For..

  • Reporting directly to the directors, it is envisaged that you will be a clear, confident and persuasive communicator that relishes pressure and wants to work in a company growing rapidly. 
  • You will have experience in a digitally enabled business where customer relationships are managed by the sales team remotely. 
  • Previous experience of entirely managing all aspects of an office-based sales team of at least 10 people, serving large numbers of enquiries rapidly, via phone and email.
  • Experience in implementing staff training, SOPs, process, and controls, and management tools to improve sales and business efficiency.
  • Extensive experience of recruitment and staffing management for previous teams as you will need to grow the team to meet customer demands.

This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious sales leader or general manager who wants to work with one of the leading niche automotive suppliers globally, who wants to develop the sales team in terms of revenue growth, productivity & efficiency.
