This is a sales role, taking over a warm but dormant patch. Selling B2B to engineering and manufacturing businesses across Northamptonshire and surrounding areas. The Area Sales Manager will contact larger manufacturing and engineering businesses, offer the service, and create sales proposal opportunities for the business.

Salary & Package: £35-37,000
This job will suit:
- A person with an upbeat approach to making telephone calls to targeted customers in engineering and manufacturing, networking to build up contacts in large customers, and keeping in touch.

- A person with the ability to understand customer needs, and refer more advanced questions to colleagues.
