Reporting to the Sales Director and working closely with the internal Sales, Design Solutions, Customer support and Costing teams, the successful candidate will be responsible for both extensive proactive new business development across the UK and existing account management and support.

The successful Technical Sales Manager will be a dynamic and highly self-motivated sales professional able to provide our client with a wider sales presence in their niche marketplace, responding to website and telephone enquiries and identifying potential new customers and markets to actively engage new business relationships with throughout the UK.

You will work closely with the engineering team to formulate, design and cost conveyor layouts and will demonstrate the ability to assess site conditions relevant to project requirements, before providing basic site surveys to allow proposal drawings to be prepared for the basis of a quotation and then proceeding to create the detailed costings and quotations for presentation to the client on individual projects, and post-sale, will liaise closely with the Project Team to ensure complete customer satisfaction at all times.

You will maintain good on-going communications with customers and potential customers and will be responsible for the creation of both broad and targeted sales and marketing material as required, as well as attending exhibitions and sales functions and carrying out lead follow up activity from trade shows as necessary.

To be considered for this varied and challenging opportunity it is envisaged that the successful candidate will demonstrate a strong appreciation of AutoCad (2D mechanical layout design experience will prove advantageous) along with proficiency in the use of the MS suite of packages. Excellent communication and influencing skills at all levels are essential for the position, as is the possession of a full clean UK driving licence and a flexible approach to travel to clients across the country.

You will ideally have attained a relevant mechanical engineering degree (or proven experience within a similar environment) and at least 5 years’ experience of previous successful sales experience gained within the automation and materials handling sector.
