National Sales Manager

In 2015, Agrigem won the Lincolnshire Media Awards ‘Best New Business Start Up’, wowing judges with their progressive growth & diverse customer range. In 2017 we moved to our brand new, purpose-built office & warehouse, ‘Gem House’ in Saxilby, Lincoln. Widely viewed as the most growing company in the industry, we have an appetite for finding the right people and pushing them for success. In 2018 we were awarded the ‘Best Medium Sized Business in Lincolnshire’ cementing our position within the East Midlands as a company to watch. Further growth in 2019 has seen us recruit further staff & recently expand our office and warehouse facility.

As part of our progressive growth, we currently have an opening for ‘National Sales Manager’. This is a prestigious & diverse role overseeing all sales aspects of our business which will include managing a sales team and overseeing our online platform.

You will be an influential part of our sales process and report directly into the Managing Director. You will be responsible for the management & recruitment of the growing sales team, ensuring budgets are hit & regular reviews & KPI’s are set and achieved with the team. You will be part of the management team which will sit alongside our Marketing Manager, Warehouse Manager & Operations Manager.

You will have a proven track record of sales and managing a team, ideally with industry experience. You will be commercially savvy and have a good understanding about our customer base & the products we sell, where you will be able to advise on new products or sectors to look at. You will be highly organised and be able to keep cool under pressure. You will have excellent IT skills and be familiar with Outlook, CRM systems, customer databases, Office and various web-based programs.

This role will require a huge amount of commitment, so the candidate must be highly driven and want to progress their career further.

This is a full-time position working from 8.00am – 5.00pm Monday-Friday, although due to the seasonality of the position, hours will more than likely be higher in the Spring. There may be exceptions such as busy periods or Trade Shows where you may have to work different hours, evenings or Saturdays. Advanced notice would be given to any of the above.

You will be working from our head office ‘Gem House’, Unit 6, Riverside Enterprise Park, Saxilby, Lincoln, LN1 2FU, although we would expect you to be on the road visiting customers if and when required.
