Business Development Manager – IT solutions for the food and manufacturing industry

Basic salary circa 50,000 + OTE + car allowance + benefits

Home based in UK


My client is a specialist provider of software, hardware and services for the food processing and manufacturing industry. They are currently growing and are looking for a new business focused sales professional to join their team. If you've got a strong software/hardware background and have sold into the food or manufacturing sector this is a brilliant opportunity to join the business at a really exciting time and help drive the sales strategy forward.

The Role:

  • This is a home based role covering the UK, selling a modular system including hardware, software and services for the food and manufacturing sector. It includes warehouse management and dispatch solutions, recipe management and a number of other modules for the food and manufacturing sectors.
  • It's a 100% new business generation role and you'll self source many of your own leads. There is marketing support to help with email marketing campaigns and any incoming leads will come directly to you. There is also a good internal referral system from on the road engineers who have really strong market knowledge.
  • The bulk of their existing business is within the food sector but there is an active plan to target non food manufacturing which creates a real opportunity. Once someone is settled in the role and the revenue is consistent there will be potential to add more people into the sales team, giving a great opportunity to the person taking on this role.
  • There will be UK travel and the need to stay away from home as and when required



The Person:

  • We're looking for someone with really strong new business sales experience within software/hardware.

  • You'll be used to working to slightly longer sales cycles (6–12 months on average) and be comfortable with a fairly complex sales process.
  • We're looking for someone driven and motivated who can present and communicate confidently with prospects and manage a sales pipeline.
  • As you'll be travelling to client's a full UK driving license is required,.
