Sales Executive Role
2tech is a 10-year-old wholesale/distribution company which imports and sells design-led gifts, homewares and gadgets to large retailers and online resellers. We specialise in developing new markets and introducing new product categories. We supply several big name high street retailers and 2tech is expanding our small team to include a sales account executive to develop new sales and help manage these accounts.
Joining a small company means involvement at all levels, helping to shape the direction of the business and share in its success. This role in a busy office will suit a self-starter who enjoys learning new skills and isn’t afraid to get stuck in. Reporting to the Sales Manager, the bulk of the role will involve developing new accounts of all sizes and building a relationship with the buyers of these retailers.
There will be an element of creating new sales accounts through sales by telephone, email and face to face meetings to manage the smaller accounts and regenerate old leads. We have a large active database of clients who love our products and all sales efforts are assisted by in-house database and web marketing like newsletters, and media & PR coverage.
This role has room to grow in a direction in which you excel, and is fast moving, exciting and very rewarding. Do not apply if you are a 9-5er who doesn’t want to become challenged by, or involved with their job. 2013 offers 2tech some amazing opportunities to grow and increase profits exponentially – we’re looking for the right person to help get us there and build on our success story.
