This is a fantastic opportunity for you to be a part of this highly successful company in providing ‘solution based selling’ techniques to the wood industry. You will be dealing with a range of stakeholders both external and internal and you must have a proven technical sales background, strong communication skills, resilience and self-motivation.
Your energetic and proactive approach to problem solving and your keenness to further upskill and adapt to change will align you brilliantly for this role.

- Having a proven track record in business to business sales
- Having the technical skills to pick up Arch Wood Protection’s product range to be able to provide best suited solutions for their clientele
