Our Jewson teams in the Orpington area are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated Sales Executive to proactively develop new customer relationships and ensure our existing customers receive a fantastic level of service. This is a field-based role covering Orpington and the surrounding area, so regular travel and therefore a valid UK driving license are essential requirements.

  • Ensure existing customers have all the right products at the right time.
  • Identify potential customers to sell our services to and forge new relationships.
  • Manage a growth customer portfolio to ensure budgets/targets are achieved and to maximise all sales and new customer opportunities for Jewson.

First and foremost, we always want to recruit talented people that align well with our values and way of working; we innovate, we collaborate, we’re agile, we act with entrepreneurial spirit, and we’re supportive of and close to our customers.

So if you…

  • Have relevant knowledge of the construction materials/merchanting sector - highly desirable.
  • Have experience within customer facing roles and know what great service looks, sounds and feels like.
  • Can demonstrate strong sales experience, with a track record of achieving and exceeding budgeted KPIs.
  • Are articulate, numerate, well presented and able to negotiate at all levels, from site manager to senior buyer.
  • Are a self-starter who requires the minimum of supervision, has a persuasive manner and who thrives on a challenge.
  • Have a full UK driving licence - essential, as the role requires regular travel.

…we may just be the right fit for each other! Does this sound like you?

We also offer some fantastic benefits, including:

  • Competitive Salary.
