This is not a generic, volume sales role- you will be a highly skilled and experienced communicator who excels in building long-term and quality relationships with a few key customers and managing these for growth.

  • Project Management:

You will be confident in managing a project from start to finish: Attention to detail will be your mantra and you will be skilled in customer and intra-company liaison.

  • Technical skills:

Importantly, you will be able to read technical drawings and understand the key elements in ensuring the spec is correct for the customer. You will have highly developed computer skills and proficiency in managing complex files.

Ideally you will have a background in Painting Steel, Steel Fabrication or Construction Sales.
