Google what a manager does and you’ll get two main duties – they supervise employees, and they shape the strategy of a business. Ask a manager, and they don’t get the opportunity to do both. That’s where this role is different.
You’ll use your mechanical engineering background and sales experience to be the driving force behind developing the business’ sales within process engineering. How you achieve this though is up to you. You might choose to look at securing new business relationships and growing your market share. Or look at how to engage with existing or lapsed customers to get more repeat orders. Or you could start with energising the existing team of 3 and developing them. Perhaps you’ll want to do all of those things. But when you’re not strategising, day-to-day, you’ll simply be leading the sales team by example: taking responsibility for key accounts and projects, dealing with any complaints or any clients with highly technical requirements.
The workshop where products are manufactured is downstairs from the office, so you’ll be in the best place for getting up to speed with product knowledge. And with a 30 year history, there is already a well-established customer base around the world for you to build relationships with. In reward, on top of a generous salary and the opportunity to shape your workload, you’ll get a share of the company profits – typically this might be around £10,000 per year, but if you want more then you’re in control of making that happen.
