The Candidate

The successful candidate/s will be responsible for and tasked with growing their customer account base and increasing sales within it, as well as having a proactive approach to generating new business customers.

They will be expected to converse politely and efficiently with customers ensuring high expectations are met and will be responsible for taking a lead or enquiry through from point of sale to delivery.

The ability to work well in a team is essential, but candidates must also be confident to work from their own initiative to handle enquiries and manage their own customer base effectively.

This requires strong interpersonal and organisational skills with an attention to detail, interacting with both customers directly and all teams internally, such as CAD Drawing, Production and Accounts.


The ideal candidate will have good Maths and English skills, be computer literate with experience with the Microsoft Office Suite (Excel, Word & Outlook etc).

CAD experience and the ability to read technical drawings is necessary and a reasonable knowledge of metal specifications would also be useful, together with any knowledge of our cutting methods and previous sales experience preferred.


The main role is to grow sales through direct interaction with existing customers and equally seeking out new business opportunities. The successful candidate will be responsible for their own account base and customers, building strong relationships within them, and ensuring every order placed is to the highest standard. This will include:

  • Answer incoming sales calls
    • Monitor and respond to customer email enquiries
    • Support and problem solve customer queries/challenges at every opportunity
    • Build quotes and progress orders dependent on customer requirements
    • Maintain a high level of service and reliability throughout all customer contact
    • Maintain and grow current customer relationships
    • Proactively seek out new business opportunities and convert into orders

Ultimately, a willingness to learn new skills is required as full training will be given to suitable candidates. We hire for attitude.
