Our client has ambitious plans to significantly increase the revenues of the business as it grows market share. The business wishes to leverage the technical sales support it offers to existing customers to develop its position in the market by entering new application areas and market sectors for adhesives, in particular Hot Melt adhesives.

A key element in this plan is the appointment of a highly focused, experienced and ambitious National Sales Manager. This individual is attracted by the possibility of progression to business leadership through demonstration of commercial capability in shaping the sales opportunities of the business and supporting the commercial team in the delivery of those opportunities and targets.

As a chemistry graduate, the individual will have experience and understanding of the development of chemical formulations in adhesives and preferably Hot Melt adhesives. This experience will have been further enhanced by responsibility in a sales role wherein an ability to appreciate a customer’s process or application requirements for the adhesive products has delivered significant and sustained revenue growth and strengthening of account relationships both technically and commercially.

Our client is seeking an individual who wishes to embrace the duties and responsibilities of heading up the commercial function, who seeks personal development through the delivery of business development, and who desires business leadership as a valuable step in career progression.  Location is at the Head Office in the Midlands, but extensive UK, and some overseas, travel is envisaged as an element of the role.

As this role is a key part of the succession planning of the business, ideally having a post-graduate business qualification or keen for personal development is important.  Our client is offering an attractive salary and benefits package including company car.
