Export Sales Manager - Lancashire

Sales Manager / Export Sales Manager / Business Development Manager / Sales and Marketing

Rochdale - LancashireFollowing their recent acquisition by a large, American corporation, our client is seeking to further the growth of their business through the addition of key players in the sales division. This includes an Export Sales Manager to facilitate the growth of the company's market share in the European chemicals industry. Primarily this business operates in livestock farming; current emphasis on dairy but with a longer term plan to increase their secondary markets in pig, poultry and more. They specialise in the manufacture of biosecurity and disinfectant products for their specialist markets, including both bulk chemical solutions and final specific, special purpose items.

As the Export Sales Manager, you will be tasked with the growth of their European region. By building and maintaining relationships with distributors, corporate level clients and even end user farming communities you will sell specialised solutions and improve the overall marketing and image of the business throughout Europe. Your role will involve setting up and managing distributor agreements, with a strong grip on the regulatory implications of selling into each different country in the EU market.

The ideal candidate for this role will be intimately familiar with the biocides/biosecurity industry, particularly it's applications for the livestock farming market. Specific knowledge of international sales, particularly into the EU market, would be advantageous and, to this end, bilingual candidates (European languages) would also be desirable, though not an absolute must. The successful candidate will travel extensively (approximately 60% of your time), visiting business partners and prospective clients across the European region. That said, their home office will be in Rochdale, Lancashire, where the company is based.

We are ideally looking for someone degree qualified for this role, and a scientist would be particularly suitable. Veterinary science, chemistry and microbiology qualifications are particularly attractive. This is a fantastic opportunity to help further the growth of an already established business. If it's the kind of challenge you feel you're looking for please do get in touch. You can apply online or reach out to me directly to discuss the role and your current situation in detail.
