Location: Home Counties or East Midlands
Salary: £50k plus package
Designing and developing a range of automation and robotics equipment to the most demanding of high speed production environments, this business has developed a reputation for listening to what it’s customer wants and supplying a solution that meets their needs.
Reaching capacity in its current production plants they are looking to expand their capability and are looking to recruit a Technical Sales Engineer/Account Manager to ensure that the order book continues to grow.
It’s likely that the successful candidate will have a better than average knowledge of automated equipment for production technologies, be it having spent time designing the kit or working with the kit on the shop floor, either way you should understand the needs of balancing production with maintenance and service of the kit, the plant layout, the cycle times etc.
The role will see you looking after a range of repeat customers, maintaining regular contact to understand longer term production needs, listening to the challenges and presenting technically sound solutions. Once a project is won you’ll work closely with your colleagues to draft proposals, compliance documentation, full specifications and BOM’s for production. When not dealing with repeat orders you are expected to follow up and investigate incoming RFQ’s learn and network in the market.
This role will involve some national and international travel, perhaps 10-20%. This is not a short lead time sales cycle so if you feel you need to see monthly revenue to stay motivated this is probably not for you, but if you get excited about chasing and closing high value projects this is one you’ll enjoy.
If you are interested in this role, please apply or call the office for an initial exploratory discussion – 0113 863 1492
