    Additional information:

    This specific role has become available due to internal promotion; hence the area is well established and has been well served in recent years by Premiere. We maintain a strong and vibrant customer base in the area; however, Premiere’s business is changing, and developing, and a significant level of New Business prospecting, within new and under-developed business streams, activity will be required to reach objectives. The role will therefore be equally “farmer and hunter” to develop Premiere’s offering in the region.

    It is envisaged that a significant amount of daily travel will be involved, given the wide geographical territory and the rural nature of much of the territory. Those looking for a 9 to 5 should look elsewhere. Also, those looking for an easy, unchallenging role should look elsewhere. Our market place is highly competitive, our customers are highly demanding, and the role requires a consummate sales and customer management professional, equally at home demonstrating product features and negotiating potentially large deals in a boardroom environment, as being on site with sleeves rolled up, directing installations from the front.

    What we are looking for:


    Self-starter, dogged, determined and resourceful

    Highly developed interpersonal skills, written and oral communication skills

    Strong presentation skills

    IT literacy in main Microsoft functions and experience of working with an online CRM

    Highly articulate and numerate with a clear commercial focus

    Ability to work both remotely and as part of a team

    Highly organised & effective time planner

    Highly experienced in planning, selling, and delivering effective customer led solutions

    Well-developed influencing and consulting skills

    Resourceful and Self Sufficient

    Skilled in preparing and delivering succinct and effective Management Info in a timely and proactive manner

    Willingness to invest time – the role will demand regular overnight stays away from home base.

    Qualifications & Experience:

    Solid educational background, formal qualifications unimportant

    Strong demonstrable experience of B2B sales is a pre-requisite

    Preferably upwards of 5 years on-the-road B2B selling experience to decision makers

    Experience in selling and tendering to government funded organisations is a definite advantage but not essential

    Experience in broadly construction-based industries is a definite advantage but not essential

    Full driving licence held for over 5 years essential

    What we can offer you:

    A strong package is on offer including good basic salary, company car, pension, laptop & tablet, mobile phone, together with all the usual fringe benefits of a successful family company.

    Bonus Structure for this role is open ended and entirely based on results, giving a highly competitive realistic earnings potential.

    To apply for this role, please send a CV and covering letter to HRadmin@markeygroup.co.uk.
