Our client is one of the world’s largest providers of workplace solutions, offering the widest range of business products and services that allow individuals and companies to work however, wherever, and whenever they need to. Our client is a hugely successful and well known brand showing year on year growth ensuring their solutions are absolutely in line with the changing market trends and up to the minute market requirements.

Now, with further aggressive growth plans our client is looking for high calibre Area Sales Directors / Area Sales Managers to have responsibility for all sales and commercial results within a region. This is a senior role where the successful candidates will be responsible for their own P&L.

This Company offers a fast paced and dynamic culture with excellent career opportunities both in the UK and internationally.


Key responsibilities of the Area Sales Directors / Area Sales Managers:


  • Hold overall responsibility of profit and loss for the area with the clear focus of driving revenue growth in all client products and services

  • Responsible for growing the number of new business leads generated by the sales team both through direct and indirect channels
  • Responsible for renewals and maintenance of existing business
