Regional Sales Manager
Job Title: Regional Sales Manager
Location: Greater Manchester
Sector: Commercial Catering Equipment
Salary: £30,000 - £32,000 + OTE £10,000
Benefits: Expensed Company Car, Pension, Private Healthcare, Life Insurance, Mobile, Tablet/Laptop
- A high quality international manufacturer of commercial catering equipment.
- My client offers a unique piece of equipment for the commercial kitchen.
- Well respected brand and innovator. This is a fantastic opportunity to forge a long term career with a truly global player growing year on year.
My client is looking to recruit a highly motivated, driven and passionate candidate. This role will be a mixture of following up leads and creating new business opportunities. It will involve working with and selling to the foodservice sector, end users and to catering equipment dealers and distributors in the Greater Manchester region (postcodes M, BL, OL, SK, PR & WN).
Customers will include those in education, hotels and restaurants as well as contract catering, private clubs and businesses. Customer contacts would include head and executive Chefs, buyers, F+B managers, kitchen design consultants, and business owners.
All candidates must have a culinary background and ideally a chef qualification or time served in a commercial kitchen. The role will involve giving live cooking demonstrations, so confidence around other chefs and in the kitchen is important.
Candidates will ideally have some experience of sales, but more importantly ambition and drive with good communication skills and a confidence to hold ‘commercial’ decisions. The ability to identify new opportunities and to confidently communicate the products features and benefits is essential.
Candidates will need the confidence to cook, present and sell to other Chefs and senior management; this is not a job for those that do not have an outgoing personality. It is a role that would suit people with an entrepreneurial flair for getting the job done, with drive and ambition.
On offer for the right candidate is a very competitive package that includes a great basic salary, achievable bonus scheme, company car, laptop, mobile, pension, healthcare and life insurance.
