Job Description

The Ashdown Group has been engaged by a highly successful FTSE listed organisation. The company has a well-established client base and is looking for an individual to help them drive the client base forward.

This role will include a significant amount time visiting clients across the country, therefore the organisation is flexible on location, however you will be expected to attend meetings in Leicester a couple of times every month.

Reporting to the Sales Manager, you will manage existing accounts and liaise with customers on a daily basis. There is no requirement to cold call with this role, simply to build on the relationships in the existing client base. You will be the first point of contact and as such the ability to build rapport and strong working relationships is essential.

Experience of working within an inspection or certification industry or of product compliance verification will be an advantage. Other sectors will be considered if you have experience selling the professional services of a blue chip company.

The successful candidate should:
- Have excellent verbal communication skills, as they will be speaking with clients from a range of countries.
- Have a good understanding of Microsoft Office, particularly Excel.
- Be well organised and able to manage time efficiently in order to set priorities and meet tight deadlines
- Be comfortable travelling throughout the UK.

In return for your efforts, you join a growing successful business, with good staff retention and friendly and professional working environment. The salary on offer for this role is £35,000 + 15% bonus + car + benefits package.
