Are you a talented sales professional with proven success in the electrical industry?

Interested in joining a financially secure and stable employer with over 15 manufacturing sites across the world?

With a multimillion-pound turnover and advanced manufacturing capabilities, my client has become a leading supplier of electrical solutions for a number of key and critical applications.

Following consecutive record-breaking sales years, coupled with the explosive growth in the renewable energy industry, my client wishes to bolster its efforts within this market by recruiting a sector specialist to take a dedicated and focused approach to developing sales.

  • £50K – £65K Basic (Starting salary dependent on experience)
  • Up to £20K Bonus
  • Company Car (Hybrid)
  • Up to 12% Pension Contribution
  • Subsidised BUPA Healthcare
  • Employee Assistance Programs
  • Critical Illness Cover
  • 7 x Life Assurance
  • 26 Days Holiday (rising with service to 36 days) + Public Holidays
  • Training & further education funding
  • Company Fuel & Credit Card

Reporting to the Sales Director you will be responsible for:

  • Covering the UK, forging solid relationships on new solar farm development projects.
  • Networking with key decision-makers within EPC Contractors including Electrical Design Engineers, Program Leaders, Electrical Rollout Specialists, Heads of Electrical Deployment, and Procurement.
  • Operating in a 75% new business and 25% account management role.
  • Managing relationships with distributors (50%), EPC Contractors (currently 40% with a desire to grow this area), and OEMs (10%) such as inverter and solar panel manufacturers.
  • Acting as the UK segment lead for this market.
  • Understanding customer project needs and providing guidance and input on the best-proposed solution.
  • Handling both technical and commercial inquiries from your customer base. (Inhouse technical support, marketing and internal sales teams are available to assist).
  • Attending industry events, exhibitions and shows.
  • Securing orders with a value of up to £100K.
  • Inheriting a territory turnover of £1m-2m.

It’s essential you possess a minimum of 2 years of electrical field sales experience, this could be within, but not limited to, switchgear, power infrastructure, circuit protection, motor control, drives, power distribution, sensors, transformers, inverters, cable assemblies, connectors etc.

This must be with either End Users or OEMs. My client isn’t interested in individuals who have predominantly sold to distribution.

A related education would be beneficial but not essential, as would prior experience selling into the Solar PV market if you possess the aptitude to learn.

Other key skills needed:

  • Customer focussed mindset.
  • Ability to find solutions to customer problems.
  • Self-motivation and comfortable with longer sales cycles associated with project-based selling.
  • Comfortable opening doors at design and procurement level.
  • Hunter mentality with a desire to identify new prospects.
