Graduate Technical Sales Engineer
- Graduate sales opportunity in the engineering industry!
- Manage relationships with your own clients across the East of England.
- £23,000 basic salary + 5k bonus & Company Car
Are you an engineering graduate looking for your first big break into the commercial world? Confident that you can mix your technical and social skills to build an exciting career?
This may be the opportunity for you!
What do the company do?
Our client support companies within the Offshore Gas, Oil Refineries and more with a safe alternative to welding - pipe connectors that reduce risk of fire, are fitted more safely and reduce overheads.
Established over two decades ago, they're the number 1 supplier in their market and are now expanding even further by adding ambitious graduates to the sales team.
What does the role involve?
As a Graduate Technical Sales Engineer, you'll spend a lot of time initially learning the product and shadowing existing sales people to boost your sales skills.
Once you're up to speed and ready to go, you'll start to manage an existing group of accounts, extending relationships with different clients, going out on-site to typically 10-12 face-to-face meetings each week.
Speaking to Site Managers, Mechanical Engineers, Construction Managers and more, the patch you will cover will run across the East of England (Scunthorpe being the most Northern point, Ipswich the most southern). A company car with all expenses paid alongside will be provided.
What are the company looking for?
This is an entry level role, there is no particular work experience required - having an engineering degree is essential. It would be helpful, but not essential, for candidates to have some previous work in a customer facing role such as hospitality or retail.
Personality is the number one factor here - sales is about building relationships with people! The right individual for this role will be warm, confident & enjoy the prospect of heading out to meetings and building relationships with new individuals each week.
What is the package on offer?
- £23,000 basic salary
- Company car
- £5000 guaranteed year one bonus
- 25 days holiday + bank holidays
