Job description

Kuehne + Nagel is one of the worlds largest logistics companies and is a certified TEI Top Employer and we're looking to make a new addition to our high performing sales team in Liverpool. We're looking to bring in a tenacious, driven and resilient Sales Account Manager. This is a tremendous opportunity with genuine development opportunities for someone who is looking for a career, rather than a job. You don't need industry experience, but you will need to be willing to learn, to be able to deliver great results, and to always be striving to hit that next milestone.

Your Role

You'll receive 2 months of excellent training to provide you with a solid foundation to your career at Kuehne + Nagel, then when you're ready to go you’ll be responsible for building a client base from scratch, winning new business using excellent product knowledge and sales acumen, but most importantly, by displaying an unmatched level of drive and tenacity. You’ll also be responsible for managing the accounts you win. That means building and maintaining relationships with your customers, providing a tailored service, and growing your accounts to achieve maximum profitability to help you hit (and smash) your targets. This role will require you to be based at our office in Liverpool, reporting to the Assistant Sales Manager and working alongside the existing team of Account Managers, as well a team of Customer Service Specialists, where we provide a dynamic environment where colleagues are able to bounce ideas off each other, as well as take part in a bit of friendly competition too!

Your Responsibilities

  • Win new business via telesales and cold calling
  • Attending appointments with customers in the local region
  • Consistently grow the gross profit and achieve revenue targets
  • Maximise revenue opportunities from existing customers by pursuing undeveloped areas
  • Process consignments and enter telesales information on to the internal database
  • Monitor consignments, ensuring that the highest levels of service are carried out at every stage
  • Provide customers with accurate and cost effective quotations
  • Prepare weekly/monthly figures of sales activity

Your Skills and Experiences

  • Ability to drive in the UK
  • Excellent customer service skills
  • Demonstrate an ability to negotiate and influence others
  • Have a strong attention to detail and accuracy
  • Have proven experience of stakeholder management and networking to achieve results
  • Experience of working to targets and deadlines
  • Experience of working in a proactive sales role either on the phone or face-to-face

Good Reasons to Join

There's definitely no standing still in this role, it's all about growth and development. You'll need to deliver great results, and in return we'll help you to develop new skills and you'll be well rewarded for your efforts. We offer a basic salary of £25,400 p/a, with typical first year earnings between £28,000 and £32,000, but with our uncapped commission scheme, there's no limit to what you can earn, and with our Account Manager Scheme, you'll be rewarded for your fantastic performance with regular increases to your basic salary, rising to £50,000 eventually. In your first week, you'll also receive a company car and a fuel card which can be used for your own personal use too (a tremendous benefit given how expensive it is to run a car these days!). On top of all of this, we also offer 34 days of annual leave (including Bank Holidays) and Private Medical and Dental Insurance, meaning you can get a GP or Dentist appointment within hours should you need it.

Make every future a success.
