Business Manager

Business Manager
Based Bristol, covering surrounding area
Basic salary up to 50k + Bonus/OTE (circa 60k)+ Excellent PLC benefits package+Car/Allowance

Are you an experienced senior manager with P&L responsibility who also enjoys being involved in driving sales? If you're seeking a balanced role that will see you retain full responsibility for site management whilst allowing you to also get 'out in the field' each week and stimulate sales growth, this could truly be your new job for the new year!..

Our client, a large market leading PLC Group company is currently seeking the appointment of a suitably experienced professional with strong sales/business development background to take charge of a key site based in the South West region.

In order to apply and be considered, you must tick all of the following boxes:-

A strong and credible hands-on new business & key account development track record
Experience of selling products (as opposed to service sector sales/intangibles)
A background within a goods distribution business/sector
Strong man-management skills (ideally including some sales management)
Current/Previous P&L responsibility
Ideally residing within a one hour commute of the Bristol area.

The role will involve on average three days on the road actively undertaking business development (supporting sales executives, closing high value deals etc.) whilst the remainder of the time will be spent ensuring the smooth running and hands on management of the site operation.

You will have full P&L and budgetary responsibilities for the site and be in charge of twenty staff, comprising of sales, procurement, warehouse and logistics. In terms of 'scale' you should be comfortable managing a site that turns over in the 15-25M annually (synergy on this point is naturally important!)

We are in fairness seeking a pretty much hand in glove fit for this appointment, so it is critical you only apply if you comfortably meet the key criteria outlined above AND that this applies to your current or most recent role. Specific industry experience is however not an issue.

Without doubt, this represents an excellent opportunity for an experienced senior sales professional who has begun the transition into a more general management role and now wishes to accelerate this progression within a large group PLC company.

Interviews will be held in the Bristol area on Wednesday 19th December, this ideally with a view to the successful applicant commencing the new role ASAP in the new year.

Please note that due to large volumes of applicants at present, only those successfully short listed will be contacted by Edge Recruits within 3 working days, so if you have not been contacted please presume you have been unsuccessful this time.
