What is exciting about this role?

This truly Global Organisation requires top graduates to join its UK based office, training, progression and a genuine opportunity to develop your career within the commercial sales environment.

What do we do?

It’s easy to think of our business as simply delivering all the things needed to keep places clean. But the true measure of a company such as ours does not lie in how many gallons of floor finish or window cleaner we provide. Often, the best solutions don’t come in a bottle at all. Instead, our real value lies in our ability to solve our customers’ problems and to simplify their lives.

So where do you come in?

An exciting career opportunity for determined individuals to join our Institutional Sales Force and help drive this fast-growing sector of the business onward and upward. This challenging, field-based role requires excellent communication skills, as you obtain and forge relationships with new customers, and build and enhance those of our existing client base, across a broad range of sectors (Healthcare, Food Service, Contract Catering, Building Service Contractors, Retail, Lodging, Government and Education).

What can we give you?

You will have immediate responsibility, as your placements are real jobs from day one. These placements will take you around the organisation providing a wide view of the business where you will have the opportunity to make an impact from your very first day.

Both on and off the job training is provided for all management trainees in skills, knowledge and competency development. You will learn about our strategy, our products and systems, get first hand experience of working with our customers and get international experience working outside of the UK in another Operating Company. As well as developing a broad business perspective you will also develop expertise in your chosen function by leading projects in your own functional area and, where appropriate, studying for professional qualifications, fully supported by the company

What you need to demonstrate?

Your dedication to a career in sales is paramount; you will have a hunger to succeed in the commercial sector.

You will demonstrate where you have led and influenced others in the past with a position of responsibility.

Your strong academic background will be of importance, coupled with your flexibility to travel or relocate when the role demands.

You must be eligible to work in the UK and have a driving licence.


Discovery is one of the leading consultancies in Graduate Sales Recruitment. We know the needs and desires of graduates aspiring to be some of the UK’s top sales people. A career in sales can be very challenging and rewarding. All our positions will provide you with a good basic salary and in many cases, the opportunity to earn substantial bonuses, company cars and other benefits including healthcare and in some case all expenses paid trips abroad.

Location: East England, East Midlands, West Midlands
