Your time will be split as below:

  • 50% joint site visits with branch sales executives to carry out lighting surveys and provide a solution in line with the end customers’ requirements. You would then pass the project back to the technical team to draw up a lighting scheme or have the option to do this yourself.

Not afraid of a challenge, you will have a successful background in either electrical wholesaling or manufacturing sales. You will be naturally confident, professional and self-motivated as well as having the drive and ambition to get out in front of the customer base in order to grow the business.

You will be an excellent planner with the ability to manage your time effectively and have a good general technical aptitude.

The role offers a superb opportunity to join an exciting business and grow with them.
