You will have support in all areas to pass on to your customers which will include training, marketing, promotions, workouts, trade shows and merchandising.
The customer base is generally made up of distributors, both large and small and although there is plenty of account management to be done, there will also be an opportunity to introduce yourself and work with new businesses as well. You will also be helped with a wide ranging of products, from refinish paint to industrial coatings and consumables meaning there will always be more to grow.
Working from home, you will manage your own workload, diary and journey plan and work closely with both the sales manager and other sales team members to pursue the overall objective and ensuring continued growth.

This role requires two things above all else.
Firstly, someone that has experience in business development and account management in a field-based capacity and can prove where they have had previous success.
Secondly, someone that is able to treat each customer as an individual, not a transaction. Being smart in their approach to spend time with the customer and really understand their needs and requirements in order to create a unique offering.
