We work as a team and the individual contribution is valued, this role being field based is about not only enhancing the technical service we can offer but fundamentally driving machine sales for  products to a much higher level. Okay not specific but realistically we should be looking for £500k of machine sales to support the role. Additionally, we want the UK Technical Sales to become an expert in automotive and look to establish product in a stronger way in the automotive sector.

A van will definitely be required to fulfil the role and this will be kitted out with machines along with associated other products e.g.

Lead generation will be a combination of the UK Technical Sales own activity supported by the BDM’s, Internal office and specific agreed objectives drawn up in collaboration with the Technical Manager and UK Sales Manager.

Importantly anyone coming into the business must be prepared to work within the team to move the business objectives forward – this role is an investment position where we expect the individual to be a self- starter, market aware with a solid technical background. Success will be rewarded accordingly and initially this will be results driven.
