EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

We are an agricultural supply business based primarily in Wales, the North West, the Midlands and Yorkshire. We supply a wide range of products to the farming community, such as feeds and specialised machinery. As a growing business, we are now seeking an ambitious individual from an agricultural background to join us as a Trainee Sales Specialist. This is an exciting and varied role where you will be dealing with customers face to face across your territory.

The purpose of this role is to manage and increase our client base within the Denbighshire region. This will involve visiting existing customers on site (i.e. their farms) in order to ensure they have the supplies they need but also to seek out new opportunities to maximise sales. This may involve referring the customer to another member of the team who specialises in one particular area.

Other duties will include:

  • To grow and develop sales of feed and related products. On an ongoing basis, this will involve achieving or exceeding various targets relating to sales, volumes and margins as agreed with the Sales Manager.
  • To win new business from within own designated area by identifying and seeking potential new business and new markets, while maintaining your existing customer base.
  • To provide technical product support to customers within own designated area, in line with the company standards.
  • To build and maintain constructive relationships with other key sales channels, including the Stores, working closely with staff from Sales and other divisions within the company, to maximise returns from group trading activities.
  • To roll-out marketing and product management campaigns within own designated area.

This role requires a high level of autonomy and travel; therefore individuals will need to be self-motivating and able to manage their own time effectively.

As part of this role, the successful applicant will receive full sales training.

This is a hands on role which will suit someone who is confident in communicating and dealing with a wide range of individuals.

The successful applicant will either have some experience of working on a farm or a background in agriculture and is keen to pursue a career within this area.

A full clean European Driving License is also essential for this role.

Discovery Graduates are the retained managing consultants.  All applications will be processed through Discovery.  We regret due to the high volume of applications we receive; only those successful on application will be contacted for interviews.  In the event that you are unsuccessful for this opportunity, we may still be able to help you and we will retain your application and consider you for other opportunities.

Location: North Wales, North West England, West Midlands
