The company is an innovator and looking forward to developing this group subsidiary company significantly through organic new business development activity. Reporting to the Managing Director you will have responsibility for both an internal and external sales team plus a customer service function where you will drive and develop new business opportunities into sectors such as defence, aerospace, pharmaceutical, food and general industry. The product sales cycle includes engineering collaboration at the early concept stages through to the negotiation of long term contracts and it also includes close collaboration with OEM customers in their product development programmes. Well / highly qualified probably in an engineering or technical discipline you will be on an upward trajectory in your career and you will have been trained in sales and new business development in a world-class manufacturing group. Ideally your career will have developed in the specialist component manufacturing segment where product design, applications engineering and approval cycles can be both detailed and extensive.
