A global business specialising in industrial multi-material packaging solutions is seeking additional members to join their team.

  • Develop new relationships in an effort to grow business and help company expand
  • Think critically when planning to assure project success
  • Maintain regular contact with existing client base to develop on going accounts, emphasising the areas of growth based on small, medium to large sized customers
  • Attend face to face meetings with customers in order to gain business
  • Identify and develop a prospect list of potential customers and or market sectors for new business generation
  • Focus on new prospects and new customer business in terms of sector, industry type and geographical areas
  • Provide customers with exceptional pre and after sales support to ensure optimum service levels
  • Write and submit periodic reports based on customer activity against budget
  • Credit management to determine credit limits and other terms for commercial activity, particularly in the pursuit and management of service agreements
  • Keep up to date with current market trends within areas of interest that effect the business or customers


You must have a proven track record within business development management and have the following:

  • A full UK driving licence
  • Working for a packaging business/industrial business is preferred
  • Experience of selling in to the following industries: aerospace, automotive, construction, electronic, engineering, food, industrial, manufacturing, medical/pharmaceutical, oil/gas, retail and storage
  • Be well presented and have excellent communication skills.
  • You must also have the drive and desire to want to progress, grow and succeed in the role.
