Our client are a leading distributor of Building Materials supplying to the construction industry.

An exciting job opportunity has arisen for a General Manager to join their organisation. They are looking for someone who is a career minded, dynamic individual with exceptional relationship management skills. This individual needs to be a decision maker who is able to formulate strategic plans to drive the business forward, and implement them. Additionally, due to the size and scale of this operation, strong management skills are required.

This is a launchpad role in which to move into directorship or other regional roles from. For this reason, it requires someone with all the skills and experience of a regional manager or someone who has managed a very large, multi-faceted business previously.

Due to this being within the merchant sector, it will require someone who understands the business model of dealing with trade customers at very senior levels and very large contracts. Therefore, whilst building product knowledge is not essential, the successful candidate will ideally have experience working within a similar type of business, supplying to the construction industry.

In exchange my client are willing to offer a very competitive basic salary, and an excellent benefits package including a large bonus structure, an executive company car, pension, stock option share scheme and many other company benefits.
