Hey there, automotive industry… it isn't all doom and gloom out there…

I'm looking for a Sales leader, ideally with experience of automotive body in white, who's ready to kick their career up a notch.

The successful Sales Director will join the board of a successful and highly ambitious business at a significant time in its development. Having delivered consistent growth for a number of years, and invested heavily in facilities and capital equipment, the business now needs the right Sales leader to deliver structure and strategy to the commercial function in order to spearhead continued growth.

The Sales Director will lead a small and highly focused team of Key Account Managers who are experts in their industry and highly self-motivated. You will be required to manage their continued development, bringing the best of your previous experience in order to create a high-functioning sales team.

You will be a proven Sales Manager, Sales Director or Key Account Director with experience managing the sales team within a first-tier automotive manufacturer, ideally with an understanding of body in white or presswork. You will run a structured and organised function but will demonstrate a growth mindset and an entrepreneurial style.

The successful candidate will receive a salary of up to £100,000 plus benefits including car allowance and a significant performance-related bonus opportunity. There is a clear desire for the business to attain succession planning through this critical hire, so the right candidate will have the opportunity to compete to become Managing Director.
