Key Accounts Manager – Beds
We’re looking for an experienced sales manager to help us develop opportunities with key retailers in the UK. Our NBF-approved range is of significant interest to the UK’s large chains, and we need a manager with drive and focus to help us build our existing accounts and open new ones. Other key accounts in our large retail customer base include major independents nationwide. We’re looking for a serious player with the confidence, contacts and ability to deliver while working in a flat-management culture.
Key Accounts Manager – Upholstery Division
We’ve been developing our sofa ranges (both British-made and imported) for many years and are looking for an experienced upholstery sales manager with excellent contacts and a strong track record. We need help in developing opportunities with key retailers; building existing accounts and opening new ones with the large chains and major independents. We’re seeking a self-starter who has the motivation and, crucially, the existing contacts to make this role a success.
Assistance in the management of our nationwide team of agents will form an element of both roles.
Both positions will necessitate travel throughout the country and so your home location is not important, although northern England is preferred. You’ll be reporting to Jackie McGarvey, General Manager and to Nick Williams, Sales Manager. Salary will be negotiable and dependent on experience.
