Business Development Manager

Global manufacturer of access solutions. Now recruiting an additional sales professional to join their Irish operation. Specification sales role selling the full solution to architects and contractors within the construction sector. Extremely exciting opportunity for a construction sales representative looking to move into specification sales.

THE COMPANY: Established over 120 years ago, our client is a global market-leading manufacturer of access control and automation solutions. They sell to all the Tier 1 contractors and Architects and are looking to expand their team in Ireland. They now require a Specification Sales Representative to cover the Republic of Ireland. They are a well-established company with ambitious plans for growth within the Irish market.

THE ROLE: As a Business Development Manager for this ambitious company you will be covering 26 counties, supplying specification construction solutions to Tier 1 Contractors, specialist sub-contractors, and architects. Working with a premium product you will be working with customers on a project basis to fulfill their specific requirements. You will be responsible for the project from the initial sale right through to completion/installation, so an understanding of sales and project management is essential. They have a strong account base in Ireland already, and working for such a prestigious company in the construction sector means there will be many opportunities to sell your solutions.

THE PERSON: You will have demonstrable experience in a technical project-based sales role, with a strong knowledge of the construction sector in Ireland. Ideally, you will be coming from a specification sales background, however, if you have experience selling to the main contractors at site-level then you will also be considered. Each project is unique to the customer therefore each solution is bespoke. Specific market knowledge is advantageous but not essential. Crucially the successful applicant will be confident, outgoing, and keen to learn a technical product. This is a great opportunity for construction sales representatives to break into a specification sales role.
