A BIT ABOUT SALES GEEK
At Sales Geek, we live and breathe sales. We’re proud of being sales people and we want to change the way that the world perceives this wonderful industry. As a business, we offer Sales Training, Part Time Sales Director Services, Consultancy, Professional Development, Coaching and Online Training to organisations all across the UK.
After an unbelievable year of growth, Sales Geek are now recruiting for an individual to help us build the sales department and help us get to the next level. Working alongside the Group Sales Director and with some of the best sales talent in the UK, you’ll have the opportunity to recruit, develop and grow a team around you.
A BIT MORE ABOUT THE ROLE
In this brand new role, Sales Geek are looking for an individual that can come in and help us lead and build our sales team. We’re great believers that you can’t lead a department until you’ve worked in that department and understand it, so you’ll be doing the sales job yourself and working alongside the Group Sales Director for 3-6 months to learn the ropes, before looking to recruit your team that will report to you.
This really is the heart of sales and you’ll be surrounded by people and businesses that live and breathe this wonderful industry! The leadership team have worked incredibly hard to develop and nurture a culture that will allow individuals to succeed, thrive and grow.
We have some incredibly ambitious plans over the next few years and need an individual that wants to grow and potentially develop into our future Head of Sales Department.
