A Sales Office Manager is required to join a global manufacturing organisation at their European facility in South Kent.
Reporting into the Sales Director, the incoming candidate will be accountable for the daily leadership of a small internal team of Sales Co-ordinators; individuals who are the front-line customer interaction (sales order processing, account management), but who also support a team of external field sales representatives.
To support the business with the export of product, the post holder will be responsible for overseeing the export processes to include export documentation, duties and tariffs. Therefore, experience within export would be essential.
Moreover, the Sales Office Manager will be responsible for coordinating of the tactical marketing activities including coordinating European trade events, working in conjunction with the US Marketing team. The role by no means warrants a marketing specialist - it is more to take responsibility for the effective communication of marketing campaigns via the sales team.
Expert written and spoken communication skills are required - you will be able to confidently build rapport with all stakeholders, ensuring the communication and information exchange between sales processes and operations is upheld and enhanced; demonstrable experience of personnel management is required. The successful applicant will be a proactive individual with a track record of delivering success. Proven office managerial skills within a commercial setting will be required - attention to detail, establishing robust procedures along with strong commercial and financial awareness.
Owing to the location of the firm, it would be advisable that candidates drive and have access to their own transport.
