Job Description

Sales Director My client, recently acquired by a Private Equity group and a leading retail supplier/wholesaler of seasonal impulse gifting items, is looking for an ambitious Sales Director to head up the UK sales team. You will be required to lead a team of dedicated and experienced Senior National Account Managers and will own the sales and new business strategy going forward. You will also be responsible for: * Spearheading the development and definition of the sales strategy to Retail & Grocery clients. * The ownership of the Business Plan and P&L. * The reporting of all activities to a very demanding Private Equity group. * Implementing an ambitious growth plan in line with board expectations. To be successful in this role, you will be an experienced Commercial Sales Leader, from a Non-food, gifting or FMCG background, have a keen eye for developing sales strategy within Retail and Grocery sectors, and be a natural influencer and leader. You will also be: * Educated to a high level. * An entrepreneurial self-starter. * Highly numerate and incredibly disciplined. * Passionate and dedicated in order to deliver on stretch targets. * A driven and natural business leader. In return for your hard work and tireless dedication, you will be rewarded with a basic salary of between £80-£120k, dependent on experience, and a very lucrative benefits package and bonus scheme. There is also the possibility of equity share upon Private Equity exit, but this will depend on results. If you feel that this is you, please apply immediately, using an up-to-date CV. We request that candidates send their CV as a Microsoft Word document where possible. Quest Search and Selection is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
