Sales Manager - London + South east
Salary: £35,000 - £60,000 OTE + Car allowance
Job posted: 13/10/2020
Sales and fitness actually have a lot in common.
Persistence, dedication and self-discipline allow you to achieve the best results. Which makes a Sales Manager position for a health and fitness company a great combo.
You will be covering the London and the South East – so an extremely diverse and expansive territory. But this wont phase you. Logistically, it’s probably going to make sense that you live in an accessible area.
Having knowledge of sports and fitness equipment is going to make your life a lot easier, as this is what you will be talking about, day in, day out. There is of course fantastic training and support – but a core knowledge would be great.
Let’s make no bones about it, your primary objective is to generate revenue and attain your targets. If you’re someone who shies away from targets, high achievement and building relationships, this role probably isn’t for you.
This does not mean you are expected to hard sell. This is a solution-based sales process, which you will be involved throughout.
You are going to be generating leads. Making appointments. Pitching to potential clients. You are going to be creating floor plans and getting buy in from decision making stakeholders. It’s not all new business hunting though, you will be working with an existing portfolio of commercial fitness outlets (gyms) helping them grow and improve their offering.
Creating and maintaining a dynamic culture is challenging, but it can and is being done with these guys. They have a speak up employment survey, with year on year improvements. It’s the kind of place I would like to work!
You will get a basic salary of £35k, with commission on top. If you’re really putting in the effort, you will be looking at upward of 55k. You will get a car allowance of £450 a month, with your travel costs reimbursed.
Let’s have a chat.
You can send me a connection and a message on LinkedIn (Will Grashoff) or you can send me your CV through the portal if you’ve got one (I know not everyone does). If you’re a talker, my number is on our website.
Every applicant will receive a response.
