Regional Sales Manager, Catering Equipment, West Yorkshire
Would you consider a step away from the day-to-day Chef role? Could you use your skills in a sales function, cooking and presenting great ideas?
The role I am about to explain to you could change your life. If you are eager to consider a step into something new, that will utilise years of Chef experiences, please read on.
Whether you have cut your teeth in a demanding restaurant kitchen as a skilled Chef since day dot, or you have already made the step away, into a new industry, this opportunity could offer you a work-life balance you've not had before whilst still using those skills and experiences. It also offers you the ability to control your earning potential in a field you are comfortable within. You just need to be able to cook, demonstrate and present to an expectant and engaged audience.
This Regional Sales Manager role demands many skills other than just cooking good food. This position has you handling the needs and requests of heavy equipment dealers and end-user foodservice customers all over the North of England. From Shrewsbury, North Wales and Staffordshire, to South Lancashire, West Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire you will manage the region like your own business. If you enjoy being out on the road and not stuck in an office it's perfect.
It demands strong communication and negotiation skills along with the ability to understand the specific needs of the individual customer. Planning your schedule, managing visits, routes and following up on leads for new sales demands a lot... but you'll be driven and motivated to surpass all expectations if you have that competitive streak and personal pride to keep this business on top of the tree.
If you think like a Chef and act like a business owner and you're able to make commercial choices that achieve your targets, this Regional Sales Manager role could be perfect. If you believe you have the local knowledge and wider understanding of the catering and hospitality market I want to hear from you.
