Internal Sales Engineer, North Milton Keynes. Up to £30,000 Basic, £42,000 OTE. This is a mostly internally based role with occasional field sales visits that is ideal for a sales engineer with business-to-business technical sales experience. This is a very varied and technically engaging sale where leads are generated for you, and your role will be to qualify the prospect and sell to engineers to secure capital equipment sales. This is a targeted sales role where you will also be following up opportunities and managing pipeline.
Whilst the range of products that you will represent is reasonably simple to understand the applications can be extremely complex and often tailored to a customer's needs. Therefore, the ability to sell at a technical level is required.
You will be expected to manage a broad pipeline of varied clients within numerous industry sectors; main ones being Aerospace, Automotive, Construction, General Manufacturing, Medical and Packaging. The company are an extremely established manufacturer who operates in several countries worldwide and has a reputation for high-quality instruments and exceptional service.
To succeed in this role, you will be a goal-oriented, progressive and focused individual with strong communication and interpersonal skills. To demonstrate these ambitious and goal-oriented qualities your CV should show indications of being above the 'norm' - perhaps you have played sport at a high level or represented your university in debating competitions, had involvement in the Student Union, led charity fundraising campaigns or something similarly 'outstanding' like working for charities on a volunteer basis, climbing mountains, undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh or similar awards, etc. As you can probably tell we are looking for an achiever with a 'zest for life' and a vital part of the interview process will be based on your attitude, aspirations and determination to get ahead.
As a person, you will be articulate, highly personable, well presented, self-motivated and a good listener. To apply, you must also be a driver.
