Alexander James Recruiting is currently working with a well-established material handling company looking to recruit a new Business Development Manager to sell their range of electrical equipment. With excellent, uncapped commission opportunities and scope for growth, this is a great opportunity for either an experienced forklift sales professional or a sales professional from a related industry in capital equipment to develop their career.

* Focusing on electric products such as electric pallets, stackers and order pickers
* Generate new business by visiting customers on site, conducting site surveys and providing customer quotes for forklift hire
* Managing exiting accounts and upsell electric products
* Providing a consultative sales approach in order to win new business in the hire and sale of material handling and related equipment
* Provide product demonstrations


You will ideally have worked in a sales role within material handling before, with a proven track record in the industry. You will be proactive in your approach to selling and will have a solid understanding of warehouse equipment. As an alternative to forklift sales experience, the company are willing to consider candidates from other industries within capital equipment as long as candidates have experience of providing a consultative sell and ideally have experience of conducting site surveys. In terms of location, the company can be flexible but need someone within commutable distance of their office on the edge of Northamptonshire to the West. Candidates from Oxfordshire, Northampton, Milton Keynes and Leicestershire would therefore work well and this is also where the majority of business would come from.


* Competitive salary dependent on experience (Up to £35,000 depending on experience)
* Excellent uncapped Commission potential (OTE £40,000-£50,000 achievable)
* Company Car
* Pension Scheme
