Job Description

The role of Regional Sales Manager requires you to collaborate with Catering Equipment Distributors and Dealers for the North of England region (Norther East, Scottish borders, Lancashire and Cumbria). Answering the call of kitchens all over the region, you will introduce the hospitality sector to market leading qualities of this heavy catering equipment. The tools to your trade will be your previous culinary skills and commercial kitchen experience, coupled with a determination and drive to have this innovative kit in as many professional kitchens as possible.

Through cooking demonstrations, client consultation and careful industry networking, you can be in charge of your own earnings, manage your enterprise and have the time to build successes in your career for a long time to come.

As a professional Chef, you will already have worked across a range of kitchen services. From humble foodservice venues, a la carte restaurants to large conference & event sites, the quality of this equipment is revered across the country. You can demonstrate the functionality because of your chef skills, but also explain the benefits because of your commercial acumen. We would like examples of where you have managed a business enterprise, or been in a sales role previously. The ability to manage customer expectations and deliver industry leading service is what has made you successful so far... and we want to tap into that, for this career game changer.

As a market leading manufacturer within heavy catering equipment, this business is trusted worldwide. They have a solid reputation and so can provide you with the assurances you need for the foreseeable future. Whilst training is provided, we would want you to have a vision and an entrepreneurial flair for managing your own targets and customer base. Through hard work and a superb support team behind you, this could easily be the last company you work for ahead of retirement.

If you feel you have the experience and desire to make a successful sales career within professional catering equipment your next step, please get in touch. Send an updated CV, highlighting your qualities for immediate consideration.
