Career Level Manager
Sales Manager – Industrial Chemicals and Waste Management
Nationwide – remote based with regular travel
£55,000 Basic, £7k car allowance, plus 10% bonus and company benefits
This is a fabulous senior sales opportunity to join a pioneer in the flu gas treatment sector. This sector is expanding due to carbon emission targets and is expected to double in size in the next 5 years. You will cover the UK and work closely with key waste management customers providing them with specific and tailored chemical solutions that aid the waste incineration process to achieve set emission targets. Most agreements are single source, and many existing contracts are in place. This would suit an experienced consultative sales professional from a chemical engineering background or industrial chemicals or manufacturing waste management background.
You will be of graduate calibre and be commercially astute in your business thinking. You need to be comfortable with a basic understanding of chemical reactions so you will ideally have worked in the chemical industry or have a knowledge of waste and incineration (not waste collection), or perhaps even be qualified in chemical engineering. You will have solid field sales experience and be open to traveling to customers across the UK. You will own the responsibility for all sales in this segment so be comfortable with making decisions and relaying market information up to the senior management team. The role covers both existing contract management of current customers and also growth and business development, as this market is growing in the UK and this employer wants to ensure it gains market share. It might be advantageous if you have experience of specification sales, this is because sometimes supply agreements can be struck at the point of a new incineration plant being developed, of which many are planned in the UK in the next 5 years
