Do you have experience in the construction industry, either in field sales, or possibly in joinery, estimating or internal sales and have a desire to grow your career with a genuine market leader in fenestration? Our client manufacturers Composite aluminium and Timber windows & doors and you'll be looking after, developing and winning accounts with window and door distributors and outlets in the East Midlands, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk and the North, North West and North East of England. The vacancy has come about through internal promotion. Offering £30k-£40k basic salary dependent on experience, plus £10k+ bonus potential, up to 31 days hols, plus Bank holidays and industry leading benefits. 

THE ROLE:

  • Field/Home based role covering Northamptonshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire and the North, North East and North West of England. 
  • Selling the company's manufactured range of high end Composite, aluminium and Timber windows & doors.
  • A mix of new business, account management, account development and training your customers on a territory worth over £2.5million, with big potential to grow further.
