FIELD SALES ENGINEER - FABRICATED MANUFACTURING & PROCESSING EQUIPMENT
Salary : £30-45000 (OTE £60000) + Car / Allowance + Benefits
Location : Telford, Shropshire (Field Based - Home & Office Based Remit)
Our client is a privately owned engineering and fabrication business specialising in the design of all types of fabricated products for manufacturing and processing equipment, predominantly for the food sector.
It has enjoyed impressive growth to date with 2019 being particularly outstanding. As a result, and as part of their ambitious expansion plans, they now seek to appoint a Field Sales Engineer to join their client facing and design team.
Our client prides itself on its responsiveness and its ability to develop bespoke solutions to meet its customers' needs, including design and on-site installation.
It achieves its high level of customer satisfaction through the direction of the Managing Director, who frequently meets with customers to identify their requirements, conceptualise solutions, communicate with the design team and prepare quotations spending time on site where relevant to ensure a smooth execution.
Customers appreciate this level of service and attention to detail and this is reflected in the firm's profitability. Our client now wishes to leverage this high service cornerstone to further expand the business to capitalise on the increasing number of opportunities which are being presented.
As Field Sales Engineer you will act as an ambassador and force multiplier - to allow more jobs to be facilitated without a reduction in customer service, whilst at the same time fostering excellent key account relationships to create additional work for both bespoke design and value added, after care services.
The Role :
As Field Sales Engineer you will be a self-motivated, results orientated sales professional with a strong technical design engineering aptitude and excellent communication skills together with a passion and drive to succeed commercially.
You will develop new sales opportunities and will optimise existing accounts ensuring that our client is providing the ultimate service to customers.
This requires a Field Sales Engineer with a fabrication background. Someone who understands design and mechanical engineering and is able to work with CAD (Solidworks).
Essentially someone who is able to consultatively elicit a customer's requirements, decipher what needs to be done and can expertly and promptly develop and relay a solution to the customer and all stakeholders within the process from concept to manufacture to installation.
This may include, where appropriate, attendance on site during field installations. This may require unsocial hours working, which would be shared with the MD.
