This person will be able to open doors and develop business by getting in front of technical decision makers and asking intelligent and relevant technical questions and building client relationships, using a project pipeline approach. There will be a large database to work from, modern CRM system, pipeline opportunity management system, and liaison with the company's excellent and experienced internal sales/ customer service team with whom you can work and share information.
Time will be split fairly evenly between out seeing clients and being in the office.
The management element will involve full responsibility for sales team performance including motivating, coaching and developing the team which will include analysing and monitoring activity, general guidance, dual visits i.e. a classic technical field sales management role.

There are 40 staff in total with 14 in sales and customer services including external sales managers, BDMs and Customer Service Representatives and a marketing and e–Commerce team headed up by the Marketing Manager.
