Summary

This Area Manager position provides you with all the tools you will need to make a successful career within sales for catering equipment. We offer plenty, but don't really ask for much. In fact this role only needs three things from you... A driving license, a working knowledge and experience within the hospitality sector (Back of House or Front of House) and lastly, an unwavering, borderline obsessed desire to earn money and compete to be the best in the business!

Job Description

The Area Manager role is also referred to as a 'Product Solutions Specialist' that looks to support all professional kitchens within Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and London with truly market leading catering equipment. Whilst previous chef experience is an advantage in this role, its not crucial. What we really would prefer is previous sales experience with a sound understanding of what the hospitality sector needs. Experience or winning new business and closing deals for happy customers is what we want to hear about from you.

This role then will be ideal for you if you have a desire to manage your own diary, build and develop lasting customer relationships and above all else make money for both you and the company.

It should be noted however, that this company is not a 'boiler room' environment. The MD and Sales Director are realistic and pragmatic

when it comes to setting targets. They consider the real market environment and also the effort deployed. In other words you can be rewarded and recognised for the work not just the results (bonus for sweat and tears, not just the revenue brought in!)

If you have the entrepreneurial spirit we seek, enjoy the sales process and prefer to be in front of customers rather than stuck behind a stove or desk, then we want to hear from you.
