As an ever present & successful Watch distribution business - our client for 2019 has taken the decisive step to once again build forward their Independent Retail Jeweller network.
Boasting an array of appealing brands the company is in an even stronger position to accelerate UK home market sales hence this initiative of hiring a further two Sales Professionals.
Excitingly there is a broad brand portfolio of highly recognised fashion names - all possessing a consumer fan base keen to extend their purchasing loyalty.
In effect a new employed national sales team is being assembled so there is expectation to gain trading results and fast .
Consequently a knowledge of selling in-the-field direct to High Street Jewellers is definitely the preferred candidate experience choice.
So if you’ve sold Watch / Jewellery products before this would be felt advantageous though experience of other premium fashion products / non - food FMCG could also be considered.
You need to know instinctively how to best represent developing brands - be a disciplined sales seeker and be both opportunistic and realistic in how , where and why brands should be entrusted to certain best- suited retail recipients.
When client facing you will need to be a worthy brand champion in the ‘buyer eyes’ - so you need to know your brands / markets and be ever in-tune with emerging consumer trends that all could potentially benefit from.
As the sole corporate face visiting these stores - alongside selling- in you will need to review the many levels of commercial support that might be helpful for your trading partners to embrace.
This is from installation of appropriate window displays - to supplying store websites with the correct brand imagery across to assessing whether joint localised trade marketing might be an additional resource able to launch / accelerate further shop sales.
In 2020 the business very much expects that their National Sales team will have proved their value and reward and responsibility levels will for all increase .
A key aim is for a future firm foundation to then be in place to bring to market other product propositions be they either group acquired /owned or distributed under licence.
