The Role:

  • A key management position within the business.
  • Leading, motivating and inspiring a national team of field-based area sales managers, to achieve monthly and annual sales targets.
  • Working closely with the Sales Director to determine UK sales strategy and propose policies and procedures relevant to sales.
  • Managing a portfolio of specified National Accounts.
  • Overseeing key, regional accounts and setting action plans with area sales manager.
  • Establishing UK Sales targets and preparing budgets.

The Person:

You will have demonstrable experience of analysing sales performance data and have an engaging and motivating style of management.
  • Transferable people management experience with the ability to lead from the front and drive team performance with approachability and gravitas is more important than product experience, however, experience within high-end interior products such as home furnishings, fabrics or wallcoverings will be a distinct advantage.
