Do you have a passion for sales? Are you money motivated? Are you looking for a new opportunity and chance to kick start a career? Perhaps you have some retail / sales experience and now looking to learn more and take that next step? Are you a graduate looking for a career?

Would you like to join a company that offers a great package - including company car and mobile phone from day one

A global organisation within the logistics sector that have offices in 100 Countries are looking to recruit a number of Sales Account Managers to join the team based in there Chineham office.
Very much a cliché, but in this role, you will be hungry for the sale and hungry to achieve success. Undoubtedly you will be a keen learner as there will be a huge amount of learning & upskilling required - but the financial rewards are there for taking!

The company can teach you the industry, but they can`t teach you traits that will make you a success in this role:
- Sales driven
- Target driven
- Ability to multitask
- Time Management skills and work to deadlines
- Working under pressure
- Good attitude to sales
- Willingness to listen & learn

You will be responsible for winning new business and selling freight services to new and existing businesses. This will involve offering a full account management service to your clients from the initial telephone call (cold call / warm call etc) through to successful delivery.
Further cliches being that you must be able to demonstrate a passion for sales and be willing to go that extra mile for the customer.
You will be generating your own leads, but also have access to various lead generators. A lot of this role will be telephone based, but as lockdown restrictions continue to ease there will be an expectation for face to face activity to take place.

As you move into the sales aspect you will be required to provide accurate quotes, close deals, and naturally provide updates when required on sales targets etc.
What will the company offer you? Simple - the chance to earn money and career progression!

Money - Starting salary of £20,000 + £3000 "living allowance".

Commission / bonus scheme in place that could ultimately turn this role into a £52K per annum job. A great example of this is that within 12-18mths you should be hitting a certain target that will secure you a £10K pay rise and become a Senior Account Manager!

Career progression - clear progression is outlined with this company. An example of this is the current Assistant Sales Manager who started with the business 15yrs ago as a Customer Service advisor, switched to a sales role and now has progressed through the company.

What will you be able to show you have demonstrable experience in?
- Top notch Customer Service
- Build relationships with internal & external stakeholders
- Accuracy & attention to detail
- Experience of working to deadlines & targets
- Proactive
- Experienced in outbound sales, both telephone & face to face

Salary & Package:

Company Car (with full personal usage covered)
Mobile phone
23 days annual leave + Bank Holidays
Company Pension scheme
