Due to increasing demand, an outstanding opportunity has become available for a confident, well-organised and professional individual to join the UK’s market leaders for re-upholstery and loose furniture covers.
Backed by a team of support staff at our Head Office in Preston, you will be responsible for our Southern manufacturing region. The current structure consists of circa 60 independent enterprises that manufacture goods on our behalf. You will be required to build a strong working relationship with all parties and monitor, motivate, and develop their activities accordingly so to ensure production targets are achieved and high levels of customer satisfaction are delivered.
In order to meet increasing consumer demand, you will be instrumental in enhancing our production network. You will be comfortable and confident visiting and presenting to prospective manufacturers, explaining our procedures, detailing what we require from them and assessing whether each prospect can offer an excellent service and a quality product.
To meet the area’s requirements, business leads will be supplied, however, you will use your own initiative to also self-generate leads in order to meet demand, therefore,
self-motivation is essential in this role.
You will possess the ability to build a successful working relationship with the Sales Team and Regional Sales Managers, being a fountain of production knowledge, a pro-active problem solver and an ambassador for effective communication between the two departments. The need to present effectively at annual regional meetings to both Sales and Production personnel will be a requirement.
Reporting directly to the National Manager, you will be accountable for maintaining and developing the manufacturing base, quality of service and product as well as the overall regional performance. Some customer visits may also be required, so a positive customer facing character will be required.
Experience within the soft furnishing industry would be a distinct advantage but not essential. More importantly, is the ability to inspire and influence those around you.
You should possess good IT skills and be a confident presenter, coming from a background of field visits/sales and B2B interface. You must also possess a full, clean driving licence.
If you believe that you have the skills and qualities to fulfil this role please contact Alan Taylor – HR Manager, Plumbs Limited, Brookhouse Mill, Old Lancaster Lane, Preston, PR1 7PZ or email email@example.com with your covering letter and CV.
