Full Time

A world leading heavy catering equipment manufacturer has an opening in its sales team for the North West region.

Have you taken your culinary skills to the next level? Have you created a business, selling your Chef services to offer a unique and sought after experience? Do you want to enjoy a career where your efforts and working hours directly affect your earning potential? If you've answered yes, than a role with our client could be perfect.

Due to an internal promotion, the opportunity to join one of the world's market-leading businesses within heavy catering equipment is now available. Our client seeks a skilled and experienced Chef who has the personality, tenacity and genuine ambition to thrive in a sales capacity covering the North West. Specifically; Cheshire, Liverpool, North Wales and bordering Shropshire and Staffordshire.

The role sees you partnering with equipment dealers in generating sales for commercial kitchens. Through one-to-one consultation and then equipment demonstrations to a prospected audience, you are an integral piece of the complete sales process. An ability to organise your time effectively, communicate with a variety of decision makers and the delegation of actions will be second nature to you. Along with a strong knowledge of the regional restaurant, hotel and contract catering scene, you will have a proactive and committed attitude to all tasks, tackling problems as opportunities.

This position will not suit an ex-Chef looking for shorter hours or an easy route to earning a commission. You have to want to carve out a career within sales, using your broad range of culinary experiences. If you have already managed a commercial operation or held a position within a sales function then this opportunity could be final piece to a glittering career so far.

Due to the nature of this work you have to have a full UK driving license and be prepared to re-prioritise your schedule in order to accommodate a number of eventualities you can be faced with from customers and suppliers alike.

To assist you searching for a role by location - we have added a generic postcode, when uploading the advert, that designates the centre of the county in which this job is found. You may not see this on certain job boards.
