Are you ready to take the lead sales and account management role for a growing retail agency brand?

This role offers career defining promise for the successful candidate. This is your opportunity to make long term impact as a key player of an end-to-end retail agency that designs, produces, and instals. The MD wants you introduced to key customers and to accompany him on new business meetings from the outset.

Have you got a track record for developing existing client accounts in the visual merchandising, retail shop fitting, and POS space?

If you have the work ethic and experience we are looking for, you will love the thrill of delivering on high value, relationship led, retail projects. Your wide range of skills must include you being a brilliant communicator and highly credible with numbers, technology, and in the way you organise yourself to deliver on (what can feel like) high pressure rollout, after the next. Your collaboration with (a soon to be appointed) high calibre Project Manager, the marketing team, MD and SMT from the wider group will be critical in the success with this role.

Are you motivated by achieving targets and sales goals?

You will be agreeing realistic targets with the MD and providing weekly updates on the team's progress. Although your role is mainly geared towards account development with existing or lapsed clients, you are expected to be pro-active in sales activity, and excellent in recording progress and maximising Salesforce. This is nothing like a cold call sales role, but you must be commercial, and omni channeled through networks, social media, events etc in raising awareness for new business.

Are you more ambitious than a £65K- £70K OTE in your first year. Will you want more responsibility and greater reward after succeeding in your first year goals?

This is the mindset we are hoping to attract for this role. You are going to be trusted with crown jewels clients and management of existing clients and new enquiries early into your employment. You are joining at a time alongside other growth hires in professional project management and marketing roles, so you won't be the only newbie starting with goals to progress and develop.

What is the recruitment process for this role?

In the first instance, please apply in the strictest confidence by this website or call John Boggis or Michael Clapton at Your Commercial Recruiter on 0116 4670800 if you are interested in exploring this opportunity.

If you are a potential match for the role, there will be a maximum 2 stage interview process and speedy decision-making process by the MD after that.
