National Key Accounts Manager - Sweet Dreams
Sweet Dreams, established in 1988, are bed manufacturers and furniture suppliers based in Burnley, Lancashire with a c£20m turnover. Renowned for our excellent service and 10 day delivery, we have invested heavily in premises, machinery, training and staff in recent years and are proud of our company’s achievements, including Gold Standard AIS supplier. Best known for our extensive ranges of beds and mattresses, we also supply bedroom cabinet and upholstery. Our offer is sold through retailers nationwide and through the industry buying groups.
Our Key Accounts Manager Nick Williams has been promoted to Sales Manager and we’re keen to fill the vacant position.
We’re looking for a highly experienced sales manager to help us develop opportunities with key retailers in the UK. Our product is of significant interest to the UK’s large chains, and we need a manager with drive and focus as well as experience to help us build our existing accounts and open new ones.
Other key accounts in our large retail customer base include major independents nationwide. Assistance in the management of our nationwide team of agents will also form an element of the role.
We’re looking for a salesperson with a calm, knowledgeable and confident approach and the ability to work within the friendly Sweet Dreams culture to develop and open major accounts. You should have contacts throughout the country’s furniture retail industry – in beds, bedroom cabinet or upholstery, or preferably all three.
The position will necessitate travel throughout the country so your home location is unimportant. You’ll be reporting to Jackie McGarvey, General Manager and to Nick Williams, Sales Manager. Salary will be negotiable and dependent on experience.
