Competitive salary + bonus earning potential + company car + group benefits
As part of Britain’s foremost watch distribution business, SEKONDA is the UK’s number one watch brand, a distinction it has proudly held for the past 30 consecutive years. TV Advertising support has emphasised its distinct brand ethos of providing high quality, desirable watches at affordable prices. In 2004 the fashion face of the SEKONDA brand was born, and today SEKSY embodies every aspect of style, glamour, and elegance in wrist wear. A partnership with ITV as headline sponsor of several high-profile programmes, has ensured growing recognition for this forward-thinking, fashion-conscious brand.
There has now arisen a rare and exciting opportunity to join the SEKONDA national field sales team, responsible for trade sales and marketing to independently owned Retail Jewellers.
Calling regularly on your established account base of High Street Retail Jewellers, you will support their sales endeavour in every possible way. You will showcase the full range of branded merchandise you represent and ensure maximum stock turn of ‘bestsellers’ for the advantage of all parties. New products are frequently released, which you will enthusiastically pitch at every opportunity, emphasising the additional trading potential that each new listing could deliver.
Your watchful eye is always monitoring in-store standards; part of your total account management remit is the skilful merchandising of your brand(s) to ensure maximum impact. Cascading brand news to all within today’s retail arena is hugely important; whether that be observed consumer trends, lines shortly to gain national advertising support, or even sharing basic selling tips to help build the store salesperson’s confidence in front of the consumer.
Building sales turnover with your existing account clientele is your priority, followed also by the acquisition of new brand doors wherever appropriate brand coverage within your region is not yet in place. Even when representing the best, there is no room for complacency, and there is still significant opportunity for you to make your mark and build your future sales career with this much-admired watch industry market leader.
Ideally you will already have enjoyed several years’ FMCG sales experience within a proven blue-chip company recognised for its training and operational standards. Equally welcome, however, will be applications from Field Sales Merchandisers or Retail Store Managers with an awareness of the watch and jewellery sector, now looking for a field-based sales challenge.
Whatever your background, you will possess a good basic GCSE-level education, as well as sound administrative and organisational skills, and a full, clean driving licence.
Reporting to a respected Field Sales Manager, your structured, professional approach to your work will pay dividends, and you will be supported with all the best tools to do the job to an exemplary standard.
To apply, please forward your CV at once to the team at JML. Interviews will be held locally, and very soon.
