National Distribution Sales Manager

Role: Permanent
Salary: £40,000/ANNUAL
Location: Field Based - National
Reference: 33838

Your career’s been building up to this! Come and manage, develop and optimise a mass distributor network - for a technology company that gives you the scope and freedom to really make some noise.

Klaxon is certainly a company that attracts attention. In fact, if you hear a fire alarm or siren, there’s a good chance it’s a Klaxon product. The company's reach is growing all the time, thanks to its global mass distributor network.

Cutting straight to the chase, we’re looking for the person who can take this network to the next level, by managing and building existing partnerships, while developing a highly efficient distribution strategy going forward.

You’ll be distribution sales number one, reporting to the Global Head of Sales for Klaxon and OEM. And you’ll have plenty of freedom to run the operation (with a focus on major/national accounts which offer considerable growth potential).

Responsibility for a sizeable multi £m revenue, with projected growth of 5% per year and all distribution sales revenue within the UK.

While this is very much a hands-on, on-the-road, distribution sales position, you’ll have a major voice in shaping the network for maximum impact, selecting dealers and defining the commercial strategy.

You

You’ll already be working in a distribution sales management role, possibly regionally or as national number two. A firm grasp of mass distribution concepts is vital and of course you’ll have excellent account management and development skills.

Additionally, we're looking for someone who has a clear eye for the bottom line and can ‘read between the numbers’ to see exactly where the commercial opportunities lie.

Fire market knowledge/expertise is definitely an advantage, but we would consider someone who has operated in very closely related sectors with similar mass distribution operations.

Beyond this it’s energy, ambition and commercial creativity that matter (along with a decent grasp of how to deal in technical products). 

Attractions

This a great opportunity to make your mark, not only with Klaxon, but also its parent group, Halma plc. The career horizons are wide and you’ll enjoy good support within a business that’s refreshingly free of red tape.

The benefits include car, laptop, phone, quarterly bonus and 15% profit share once the team target has been reached.
