Who are we ?

Due to consistent growth, we are opening a brand new Jewson Civils Branch based in Oldham alongside our existing Minster brand onsite. As a result, we have a fantastic opportunity for a Branch Sales Manager to come into a growing business and really take a commercial lead. As a Branch Sales Manager with Jewson Civils, you will set high standards of customer experience and build successful working relationships with customers, staff and suppliers to deliver sustainable profitable sales growth and gain market share within the marketplace.

With managerial responsibility for a small team of three, you will drive forward all sales activity and thrive on delivering exceptional levels of customer service to existing and newly targeted customers alike. The ideal candidate will have strong leadership and management capabilities alongside an understanding of the North West market in both Civils and Utilities.

How will I utilise my skills and experience in the role?

As a Branch Sales Manager with Jewson Civils, you will: 

  • Develop and manage the branch customer portfolio, building effective supplier relationships in order to maximise customer sales opportunities.
  • Achieve and proactively drive through the team the Key Performance Indicators to agreed standards, incorporating sales growth, sales & margin targets, customer base growth and customer spend targets, and customer service initiatives.
  • Build close and trusted working relationships with operational colleagues to ensure excellent levels of customer service and satisfaction are delivered to customers and achieve company goals.

  • Work with the Area Sales Manager and Sales Director to define and implement Regional sales plans.

What skills are you looking for?

First and foremost, we always want to recruit talented people that align well with our values and way of working. This role demands someone who is extremely proactive in their approach and who not only enjoys building new client relationships, but nurturing existing ones too. Whilst product and industry knowledge is desirable, this can potentially be provided through training. What is most important is that you can demonstrate commercial acumen and a proven background in sales and customer service.

To be suitable for the Branch Sales Manager, role you will have: 

  • Proven experience in customer facing business and a proactive sales/customer focused environment.
  • Strong leadership skills and commercial focus.
  • The ability to communicate and influence at all levels, working both within a team locally and nationally.

  • Proficiencies in MS Office packages (Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc.).
  • A clean driving license (essential).

The world of work is changing, and at Saint-Gobain we are open to new ways of working in order to attract talented people to our business. We understand that everyone has different needs and commitments. Therefore, we are very open to discuss any flexible requirement or need that you may have for this role. We can’t guarantee to meet all requests for flexibility when we are recruiting. But, we promise to listen
