Regional Sales Manager, Heavy Catering Equipment
Retirement might be a long way off yet, but does the kitchen seem the likely place to spend your time between now and then?
It's not unusual for highly experienced and credible Chefs to get to a stage in their careers and consider what the future has in store. Not everyone is destined to manage others as Executive Chefs, or to own their own award-winning restaurant. The majority of Chefs won't lose their passion and desire to work with food right up to pension day, but some might well consider how to use their talents in a different way. This is one of those options.
We have a position in the South Yorkshire region that demands not just Chef skills, but also commercial acumen. Regional Sales Manager for a global brand that has been innovating and breaking down barriers for decades has a rare opportunity to add to its team.
Have you ever ran a cost centre, or managed a business where your service offering was essential to its success? If you have a desire to be in front of customers and represent a business that demands not just culinary credibility, but also an unwavering work ethic and a desire to beat the competition, this Regional Sales Manager career option could be ideal.
Needless to say, a sales position will require confidence, an understanding of the product, services and knowledge of the region for the relevant target market. Above all, you would need to have a tenacious attitude in building relationships and managing the network of customers and equipment dealers in your region.
This role is extremely rewarding for any Chef that has an ability to think commercially and manage their time in order to maximise the opportunities in front of them. After discovering sales leads within your new relationships, alongside an existing customer base, you can demonstrate the equipment to an engaged prospective audience. And this is your route to a happy and profitable career right through to picking up that bus pass!
If interested or simply intrigued, with the skills to take your Chef knowledge into a sales arena get in touch immediately.
