The Role

International Sales Manager

We are handling an exceptional opportunity for an experienced international sales manager with a background in branded consumer goods. This position will focus on the development of sales across Europe via third party distribution channels.

The Export sales manager will take responsibility for a geographical region, the composition of which will be decided depending on the skills and experience of the selected candidate. Sales are achieved through distributors and the international sales manager will inherit and manage an existing network of distributors and also explore and capitalise on new business development opportunities with new customers.

The Company

An established and growing British supplier of branded consumer products. This dynamic, privately owned company already relies on export sales for more than 20% of turnover and the future growth will disproportionately come from international markets.

The Person

To perform the role of International Sales Manager you will need to have a minimum of 5 years’ experience in export sales and in international distributor management. A background in consumer goods is essential.

Fluency in a French, German, Spanish or Italian is desirable for this position but is not essential.

The International Sales Manager will ideally be located within commutable distance of Manchester but the company will consider candidates who would require the flexibility to work from home. The international sales manager will spend around 20%-40% of their time visiting customers in Europe.

The Package

The business will design a package to attract the right candidate. It is anticipated that the basic salary will be between £35,000 and £45,000 with car allowance and bonus.
