This is an excellent opportunity for a commercially strong, experienced Sales or Business Development Manager to join a highly regarded, award winning, independent inks and coatings business which has enjoyed sustained and profitable growth. From its North Manchester base and through a growing European network, the company has ambitious plans, which will be realised through increased turnover, innovation, improved productivity, and continuous professional development. Privately-owned, our client manufactures and markets a range of technically advanced solvent and water based flexographic and gravure printing inks and coatings, which require detailed and effective commercial leadership to ensure that the company remains at the forefront of its chosen sectors, exceeds its customer’s expectations, and to enable the company’s business growth plans to be delivered.
Reporting to the Managing Director, the appointee will be responsible for all commercial aspects of the company which in addition to the building and delivery of the sales pipeline through establishing strong relationships with existing, new, and potential clients across the marketplace, will also carry responsibility for the promotional and marketing of the business into both existing and new markets. With full accountability, the appointee will be given substantial autonomy to develop, manage and deliver commercial strategies that meet the key growth goals of the overall business and focus on revenue and profit growth. Future sustainability is of key importance to the business, as is personnel development and the advancement of data driven KPIs to measure success, all of which will underpin company growth. This new role will develop into a senior and influential voice and the right individual will enjoy the opportunity to contribute to the overall long-term development of the wider company. As such, cultural fit will be of paramount importance, as will an entrepreneurial and collaborative approach to develop and support delivery of the company’s aspirations.
Candidates, ideally qualified to degree level or equivalent in a relevant discipline, will have demonstrable and successful track record in the development and leadership of commercial activity, along with strategic thinking, strong teamwork, a high level of integrity and a desire to build strong relationships both internally and externally. The successful candidate will be a skilled people person who can inspire others and allow them to thrive. Experienced in small business scale-up, along with the development and successful closure of new business opportunities, the appointee will demonstrate drive, tenacity, ‘presence’, maturity, confidence, humility, and strong financial awareness coupled with exemplary communication & presentation skills. Listening, influencing and negotiation will all be key competencies along with a positive, enthusiastic outlook which will engage others to deliver exceptional results.
