The job:

Based at our local office and reporting to the Depot Manager, the role is targeted on developing and sustaining new business clients as well as servicing the requirements of the existing customer base through promoting the sale of all of the company's services.

Additionally, you will support Depot Managers in achieving budget sales targets and assist in the management of the sales where required.
