Why should I apply?

· You'll travel to our manufacturing sites in Italy a few times a year with customers. Get to know them in a "non-work" setting and build relationships
· We're an OEM and our robotics / automation kit is fantastic! Selling 'best on the market' in its class separates you from other sales people
· You will get to shadow our UK Sales Manager and learn our products, our clients and our sector. You will become an expert and a specialist sales professional in the PPMA / Packaging Machinery industry

JOB DESCRIPTION: Sales Manager / Business Development Manager : Weighing & Bagging Packaging Machinery / PPMA / Food Manufacturer

Brand new role based at our UK site in Nottingham.

You'll be working alongside and shadowing the experienced UK Sales Manager, supporting the sales process, following up leads, contacting existing and lapsed customers from our database.

You'll take initial site visits with these customers - across the UK - to establish requirements and organise quotes from head office. On larger deals, the UK Sales Manager will support the closing of new business, whilst you maintain the relationship and account manage.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: Sales Manager / Business Development Manager : Weighing & Bagging Packaging Machinery / PPMA / Food Manufacturer

· Primarily an account management role - supporting the sales process and developing client relationships
· Follow leads and enquiries to open lines of communication and maintain existing contacts
· Take customers abroad to manufacturing sites in Italy to present machinery / equipment and act as host for the visit. This will be half a dozen times a year for a couple of days at a time

PERSON SPECIFICATION: Sales Manager / Business Development Manager : Weighing & Bagging Packaging Machinery / PPMA / Food Manufacturer

· You've got a track record of success selling a technical product or service - ideally capital equipment or other big ticket sales. Definitely dealing with larger order values.
· You'll be used to managing longer sales cycles (6-18 months)

You've most probably got a technical qualification - HNC / ONC + in something relevant. Good experience of sales management of a technical product supersedes any piece of paper, though.


We're the partner of a prestigious Italian manufacturer of weighing and bagging packaging machinery. These are high quality, top-of-the-line machines and we have a broad range of high profile manufacturers in the food, pet food and bulk packaging industries.

It is highly likely you will have worked in any of the following roles and/or markets, and worked with the following products and/or services: Sales Manager / Sales Executive / Key Account Manager / Sales Account Manager / Business Development Manager : PPMA / Packaging Machinery / Process Machinery / Capital Equipment / Food Manufacture / Industrial Capital Equipment / Robotics / Automation
