Regional Sales Manager
£40,000 - £50,000 depending on experience, plus Bonus.
It feels like a tough time to be selling into the hospitality industry. Then
again, not everyone has the advantage of selling a game-changing POS
product that every pub, bar or restaurant needs more than ever right now.
Bring your skills to 2EM and you’ll be helping our client, theUp.co to change the way ordering works across an industry worth $570 billion. It’s a chance to be a key part of a fast-moving start-up culture. If you prefer a rollercoaster ride to a rigid routine, this could be a perfect sales management career move.
A huge opportunity
Employed by 2EM, a UK agency that helps drinks industry brands to grow, you’ll be representing theUp.co, Europe’s leading provider of hospitality technology products and services. Having secured funding from some well-known investors, theUp.co is powering forward with their new digital POS product called ServedUp, which allows hospitality businesses to process orders and payment in seconds. It’s game-changing technology with the power to digitise a growing industry and create a more connected world.
That’s the vision. Right now, when the idea of a heaving venue still feels a long way away, this technology is perfect – it can cut queues, speed up table service and keep sales flowing. The product almost sells itself. Almost – that’s where you come in.
What you can add
The Regional Sales Manager role is vital to theUp.co’s success. You’ll be a catalyst for growth and an ambassador for the product.
There are two sides to the job. First, you’ll work closely with the client’s Commercial Director to develop operational plans that deliver the company’s sales strategy – that includes workforce planning and setting KPIs. Then, from day to day, as well as making client visits yourself, you’ll set the standards for a regional team across the UK. It’s up to you to make sure they have the tools, the training and the motivation they need to smash their sales targets.
This is a start-up, so above all we’re looking for self-starters – people who learn fast and love to lead, not follow. Beyond that, you’ll need to tick these boxes:
● You have sales management experience. You’re comfortable with the
strategic side of the job: talking to decision-makers and colleagues in HR and finance and creating a platform for your team to succeed. You also have proven people management skills
● You’ve worked in the hospitality or food and drink industry before –you understand the language of covers, customer service, EPOS and
ordering; you can empathize with the changes businesses are having to
embrace and confidently build a rapport with customers
● You’re tech savvy. Maybe you’ve done a degree in a technological subject or sold complex products before. Either way, you’re someone who can confidently deal with technical questions and translate features into benefits.
In return, there’s a competitive salary package with attractive commission. We’ll give you a laptop and screen to work from home when you’re not out visiting potential clients. There’s also
an office in Victoria when you need it and (once things get back to normal) plenty of company-wide social events.
If you’re enterprising and full of ideas – like theUp.co – there’s so much scope here to keep learning and to progress your career. This is a business on a huge growth curve that likes to promote from within.
Put yourself in the right role and the right time.
