We are an industry-leading manufacturer of building products, materials, and solutions including innovative drainage, waterproofing and damp-proofing systems. Due to continued growth driven by ever-increasing orders and an expanding product range, we are seeking to appoint a sales engineer to support our customers by answering technical queries relating to our products and systems.
Whilst assisting with queries you can identify additional opportunities to utilise our product ranges within building and refurbishment projects. You will also produce specifications for cavity drains, membranes and concretes based on technical drawings from architects and structural engineers.
You will coordinate project drawings and technical information directly to the Technical and Specifications Managers and record all drawings and project information on our CRM system.
Although predominantly office-based, on occasion you may be required to attend project meetings and site visits, so a driving licence would be beneficial.
In addition, you will also be supporting other parts of the business such as lead generation for new business or research opportunities, contributing to marketing materials for new and existing customers, and involvement with pre-tender submissions.
Through providing this value added service, we aim to develop and maintain close working relationships with new and existing customers, so excellent interpersonal skills and strong communication skills, both written and verbal, are essential for this role. Equally as important is the ability to work well in a team.
Candidates who hold a technical qualification (such as architecture, engineering, materials science, etc.) are of great interest. Applications are invited from Technical Sales Engineers, Technical Specialists, Sales Co-ordinators, Product Specialists, as well as R&D Engineers and Scientists who are striving to develop a career that is commercially focused.
Applicants must have at least one year\'s experience of supporting sales (including telephone / telesales / email) and be motivated to succeed. Candidates who are currently and/or have previously worked within sectors that focus on building or renovation projects or the use of building materials, products and systems are likely to be of particular interest.
In summary, this close-knit business is expanding and this opportunity offers excellent career progression associated with this role, together with a very competitive salary package.
More information is available upon application.
