Job of the Week!

My client is the market leader in their field, offering a high quality, flexible service to a growing range of clients. As befits an organisation with a clear strategy, a recession proof offering and ambitious, yet achievable growth plans, they are constantly looking to strengthen their team. As part of their current plans, they are now seeking to recruit an ambitious graduate buyer to a new role supporting the Category Manager. Your duties will include producing reports on projects, working closely with a portfolio of clients and helping to design and implement purchasing strategies. A strong track record in a corporate purchasing environment is a necessity, backed up with an appropriate degree qualification, whether that is in pure purchasing or procurement, or a business studies degree with a purchasing element. As importantly, you must be able to demonstrate well developed analytical, interpersonal and spreadsheet skills, and be comfortable working on a project basis within small teams. If you are seeking a long term career within purchasing, without reducing the chance for further personal development, then this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

Head of Sales & Marketing, £45,000 – £50,000pa + car, bonus & benefits, West Midlands

Job of the Week!

My client is the market leader in its field with a thoroughly deserved reputation for quality, service and reliability. Having enjoyed many years of successful trading, they are now seeking to capitalise on their current market position and are looking to recruit an experienced and ambitious head of sales and marketing into a new role supporting the Managing Director and his growth plans. There are a number of key aspects to the role – developing and managing all aspects of their marketing material, from traditional brochures and media representation to trade exhibitions and e-commerce; devising and implementing a sustainable sales strategy that takes the business into new markets both in the UK and overseas whilst also developing increased sales from the current customer base; and leading the existing sales team. It is crucial that your experience covers all these areas, and also that you are keen to retain hands-on sales and customer involvement, as your credibility and rewards will be based as much on your own sales figures as those of the team; these rewards will be not just financial, but also a seat on the board of Directors in due course for someone fulfilling all aspects of the role. Given the Managing Director’s growth projections, and the potential sales channels opening up in the global marketplace, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone who sees their long term future with a British manufacturing success story.
