Eleven are working with an established fuels and lubricants company, who are looking to enhance their sales team with the appointment of a Business Development/Sales Manager.


The role

There will be training on the specifics around the products, processes and clients, but we are looking for candidates with experience within the fuels and lubricants industry, as this will be an autonomous/field based position.

The role will initially be 100% remote, due to the current situation, so we're looking for someone that is willing and able to work from home, and has the drive and determination to exceed doing this. Moving forward there will be the opportunity to work from the main site, with travel to customer sites for new business and account management meetings.

The role covers the Midlands area, so willingness and ability to travel is a must. You must have a full valid UK driving licence.

The company pay a competitive salary based on your background and proven experience, plus mobile, laptop and company car/allowance, as well as performance related bonuses, holidays and pension.

You will:

  • Identify and qualify sales opportunities through a multi-channel approach

  • Implement focused business development strategies to capitalise on leads

  • Understand and utilise value selling methodology

  • Implement best practice and appropriate technical advice to customers

  • Manage account and client retention activities

You must have/be:

  • Technical knowledge of fuels/lubricants industries

  • Proven track record of sales ability, and commercial acumen

  • Highly organised with the ability to work independently as well as part of a team

  • Strong in relationship building and communication skills
