This successful branch is looking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced Internal Sales Executive to join their busy sales office.  

This is a very important role for our client.  We don't want an order processor!! We need a proactive, hungry sales professional ideally from the timber supplies or building supplies / builders merchants sector who will go above and beyond.

You will interact with customers over the phone, by email and face to face. Asking questions, finding about the projects the clients are working on, taking quotation enquiries, developing rapport with these people and upselling where possible. You will need to be able to think on your feet and ideally demonstrate sound timber knowledge when called upon.  

The other part of the role is working on the quotations, generating the quotes and following these up, turning them into orders.  We are looking for a confident individual with high levels of customer service. This role requires someone who is proactive and will pick up the phone and talk to customers! Confidence and attention to detail is key. 

The company deals with many large House Builders and Developers. It’s fair to say this will be the focus of the role but the job is varied and they deal with smaller firms like joinery companies too and they also target niches sectors, like garden buildings manufacturers as well. This a very well-respected and highly successful business.

You must have experience of selling timber within the builders merchants world for this role. The sales skills you have must be proven too, so it’s basically a combination that’s required including timber knowledge and relevant sales skills
