My client is an ambitious, expanding manufacturing company with an exclusively blue chip customer base. As part of their current expansion plans, they are now looking to recruit an experienced and confident individual to a new role working closely with the existing sales team. Your role will be to generate leads through internet and directory based research, making calls to prospective customers and arranging appointments for the external sales team. You will also be expected to get involved in all aspects of the marketing process, from identifying potential targets through to following up the campaigns. You will have a good telephone manner, and be organised and conscientious with experience of maintaining a CRM database using Salesforce. Much as this is an excellent opportunity given the quality of the business, its products and its growth plans, it is made unique by the fact that my client is looking for someone who will be primarily home based, with attendance at head office expected once a week when the rest of the sales force is there. This is genuinely the job that offers flexibility without compromising on either interest or earnings potential.

My client is an ambitious, VC backed business offering a market leading product to a receptive and expanding marketplace. Having recently launched a series of new products, and with a number of key executives recently appointed, they are now looking to strengthen their service delivery team with the recruitment of an experienced Head of Operations to implement blue chip systems, procedures and project management skills into the business. Reporting to the board and providing functional support to other areas of the business, you will be educated to at least degree level, preferably Prince2 trained and have significant experience of project delivery within a SaaS environment. The role is multi-dimensional, addressing not only internal systems and procedures, but also ensuring that service delivery to clients is maintained at its current excellent rate and that any areas of customer dis-satisfaction are dealt with in a mature, professional and above all timely way. You will be able to demonstrate a strong IT background, preferably with experience of cloud based systems, and be adept at designing and implementing a reporting structure and format that provides key management information at all levels within the organisation. This is a fantastic opportunity for a high calibre individual to join a company destined for great things at a key moment in its development.

My client is the market leader in the their chosen field, a position they have achieved not just through the quality of their products and customer service, but also because of the way they engage with their customer base to develop the next generation of products. As part of their continued desire to stay one step ahead, they are now seeking to appoint an ambitious, articulate and analytical graduate to a new role working closely with the customer base and the software developers as part of the product development team. Ideally you will have had some experience within a software business, but if not you may well be a recent graduate from a mathematics, ICT or computer science background, and have had significant post graduation experience in a customer facing role. Your function will be to gather feedback from the existing customer base (via e-mail, telephone, focus groups) on the current product portfolio, on the issues that they are likely to face moving forward or on the functionality of the product itself. Taking this information, you will then be expected both to analyse and report on it, before translating those ideas into an action plan that the software developers will be able to implement. This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious graduate with excellent communication skills, looking for a role involving a degree of travel around the UK that is certainly neither routine nor run of the mill.

My client is a dynamic expanding organisation that has achieved its current status by providing innovative solutions and the very best customer service to its client base. As part of their plans to continue to grow the business, and with one eye to the future senior management team, they are now looking to recruit an experienced, dynamic and ambitious print industry specialist to head up both the internal sales and customer service team and the field based executives. This will be an extremely varied and challenging role, with a high degree of customer interaction and staff management and motivation, but also a large element of strategy in terms of determining the future direction of the business. Much as this in itself is a challenging and rewarding role, the key element of the post is for someone to come in and prove themselves worthy of the Sales Director position, preferably as part of the proposed MBO plan within five years.
