MANAGING DIRECTOR - Outdoor Home/Garden Improvements
"Strategic managing director position helping an ambitious family business achieve greatness".
Salary: c£50000 Performance Related Pay (OTE £80000)
Commutable from Croydon, Epsom, Thornton Heath, Tolworth, Wallington, Purley, Morden, Esher, Tadworth, New Malden, Surbiton, Chessington, Kingston on Thames, Ashtead, Cobham, Oxshott, Sunbury on Thames, Leatherhead
Are you a commercially focused managing director with knowledge of the outdoor home improvement industry?
Our client is an established, successful and thriving family business on the cusp of greatness. But they need your help to get there.
As an experienced managing director, you'll know what it takes to grow a business. Of course, it isn't always easy, but when that business has an excellent reputation for supplying and installing high-quality products, it's an awful lot easier.
The family have built their business by putting the customer at the centre. And it's worked well. They have a growing customer base within the M25 region and are keen to expand it further.
That's where you come in. Having worked in the outdoor home improvement industry, you'll be familiar with their process. The directors envisage your background, including the outdoor home improvements industry, possibly involving decking, artificial grass, hot tubs, landscape gardening, or external workspace pods.
They tailor everything to their client's requirements, so no two jobs are the same, and the opportunities for upselling are considerable. In addition, they have a strong operations team who know exactly what they're doing, so your focus as MD will be on the commercial and strategic development of the business.
While they have a core product and focus for the business, they inevitably become involved in supplying other related services that fall outside of their current scope. For example, they sub-contract landscaping and are keen to develop their in-house team to supply that service. As the MD, you'll be able to flex your strategic muscles by developing and implementing those types of plans.
Their projects and customers vary considerably from private, domestic clients to large venues, such as the O2 Arena, so there are plenty of options for you to explore as the directors are keen to diversify into other areas. They see possible opportunities to create a franchise model for their business, so they will draw on your experience in building successful franchises.
As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss, so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 808386
Sales Managers – Fast Track Career Development Programme
“A rare chance for established Sales Executives to join a successful asset finance business and develop their sales management skills to the next level”.
Base Salary £50-70000 OTE £150,00 -200,000 + (Year 1-3) & Fantastic Benefits
Bedfordshire, East Midlands UK
Are you a Sales Executive at the top of your game?
Maybe you’ve left college or university, taken a job in sales and reached a high level of achievement in your industry.
Life is good. You’re earning decent money.
But perhaps you’re wondering what’s next? Have you reached a ceiling but have the ambition and drive to go further?
Our client is looking for someone like you. They work in the commercial finance industry and want a rising star to develop into a superstar through their fast-track sales management programme.
You’ll be working alongside the Managing Director, Operations Director, and Sales Director, who will all give you first-hand training of their business to help you develop into a Sales Manager in 18 months. As part of that training, our client will support and pay for you to obtain your LIBF Diploma in Asset Finance (DipAF), if you wish.
Currently, you may be working in a role such as prestige car sales, high-end property sales, or capital equipment, or other B2B or B2C sales and you’ll have learned the art of consultative selling. You’ll have developed your communication skills to work with companies of all shapes and sizes. And that variety is one of the key features of this role. For example, you could go from talking to a small wine-bar owner about finance for new fridges to the FD of a £10m business wanting finance to purchase a fleet of commercial vehicles.
Your day-to-day role will combine generating new business from warm leads, which you’ll aim to convert into long-term accounts for you to manage. Getting to know your clients’ businesses will be critical to your success as you’ll be able to identify further opportunities to provide financial solutions to help them grow and thrive.
Our client’s industry works at a fast pace, and you will have multiple deals in progress at any one time (perhaps 30-40), which can go from initial contact to funds in the bank in a matter of days. As such, you’ll be able to flex your time-management muscles and enjoy your sales commission being paid shortly after the client is onboard.
As you rise through the business, you’ll then mentor, train and lead other sales executives to bring through the next generation of brokers in the business. And to top it all you will also benefit from an override commission on earnings generated by the team, as well as many other market-leading benefits.

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGER - EMEA
"Experienced FMCG Inventory Supply Planning and Demand Forecasting Specialist required to manage imported Inventory ensuring optimum On Shelf Availability and On Time in Full Order Fulfilment."
Oxfordshire (Hybrid Office and Working from Home)
£40-45000 (Dependent On Experience) Excellent Benefits
Managing inventory requirements isn't easy at the best of times. As someone experienced in demand planning and inventory forecasting, you'll know that feeling well.
However, when there are the combined effects of a pandemic, container ships getting stuck in the Suez Canal, and the UK has a whole new world of international trade procedures to work out, it all becomes that bit more challenging.
But maybe you're the kind of person who's secretly enjoyed those challenges?
Perhaps you've been working as part of a demand planning team and feel that now's the right time to move into a role where you can be the subject matter expert? Or, possibly, you're an experienced supply chain manager who loves the analytical part of the job and could bring your knowledge to a new company.
Your background will include working in an FMCG environment, supplying goods to retail/wholesale/e-commerce. You'll need excellent supply planning and demand forecasting capabilities and be used to dealing with large data sets and modelling scenarios in Excel to ensure adequate supply to fulfil orders/promotions.
Our client needs someone like you to take responsibility for their inventory purchasing and availability forecasting function. They're based in the UK and supply domestic consumer products to an impressive portfolio of well-known retailers and sell directly to the end customer.
All their products are manufactured in the Far East, and the United States, so you'll be able to bring your prior knowledge of working with manufacturers in those countries. Our client doesn't export, so all the focus of this role is around importing and inbound product management.
They currently know their demand planning and availability forecasting needs to be more robust as they struggle for availability, so that's your first challenge to overcome. As a minimum, you'll need to be an advanced Excel user or, ideally, have experience of using BI software such as Qlikview or Tableau.
But it's not only about making sure that the factories produce enough products to cover your requirements. You'll also need to work closely with the warehousing and distribution team to factor in warehouse capacity and resources when creating your plans. As such, you'll need to be a confident communicator with all departments and levels of the business.
The role is based out the head office in South Oxfordshire for three days per week with the other two home-based. There will be the occasional need for you to visit the distribution centre a couple of hours away in the midlands.
To apply for this role, please send your CV quoting reference LX 799567.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR - EUROPE
"Sales Hunter/New Business Development role for Consultative Solutions Professional with strong consistent and recent track record of Sales within the Employee Incentivisation, Rewards, Benefits & Performance Management Sector."
£/€ Competitive Six Figure Base Salary + Bonus + Blue Chip Benefits
Location: Flexible Pan European Field and Home based - UK or Germany or France or Switzerland or Netherlands
If you had a business with 20,000 employees or more, how would you incentivise them? You might need to be a bit more creative than arranging a night out at a bowling alley or having Pizza Friday.
That's what our client does. They create bespoke incentivisation, rewards, or performance management solutions for large, Fortune 500-type companies.
And now they need a hunter. A new business hunter to search out the big deals.
Someone who loves landing multi-million dollar deals and has the patience to nurture these long-gestation contracts.
As an experienced business development director, you'll have already realised that this isn't about brochure-based selling. It's a consultative solution sell, involving careful planning and consideration of the key people to target within a prospective client.
As a graduate-calibre sales professional, you'll need to use your top-level strategic sales skills to identify and map the prospective organisation to establish the stakeholders involved and plot a route through to the board-level decision-makers, who are your ultimate target.
As for your background, because of the nature of our client's contracts, they're keen to see longevity in your previous roles. Their contracts can take up to a couple of years to develop from prospecting through to sign-off, so you'll need to demonstrate your stamina for working on those types of £multi-million deals.
Your previous industry experience might include selling large, bespoke HR, payroll, pension, compensations and benefits systems or rewards and sales incentivisation systems. Whatever your background, you'll need to show your abilities for constructing bespoke, consultative sales solutions for large multi-national companies.
This role covers the whole of Europe, so you'll also need to be based in one of the central hubs in Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, or the UK.
As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss, so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 773226
What's the view from your workplace? Bet it's not as good as this…
You know those annoying friends on social media? The ones with the jobs that take them to fantastic locations so they can post "This is the view from my workplace..." type posts.
How would you like to compete with that annoying friend?
Whatever their current view, it's unlikely to match the absolute beauty of the Isle of Skye - particularly if you're about 100m in the air working on a wind turbine.
That's where this role is based.
We're looking for Electrical Technicians to join our wind turbine team, based on Skye. It's a shift-based role working 8 days on, 6 off, 4 days on, 3 off. So, you'll also have plenty of opportunities to explore this unique part of the UK.
As a time-served electrical technician with a minimum of a level 3 qualification, you'll be maintaining, fault-finding, and repairing wind turbines. Occasionally, you may be required to assist with installing and commissioning new turbines in other parts of the UK. But you'll be based out of Skye for the main part.
Along with the electrical qualifications, you can probably imagine that a sense of adventure and a head for heights will be essential for this role. Along with a sturdy set of underwear! Some of our turbines are 125m tall, so you'll need to be physically fit and comfortable working at height.
Prior experience with wind turbines would be a great feature, but we know it's unlikely, so we will provide the training you need to work on our market-leading machinery.
On top of the basic salary of £27,966, we pay working pattern allowances, overtime, training, and travel allowances. Our standard day is 07:30 to 18:30 with a 30 min lunch break (10.5 hours total).
So, if you're already based on Skye or would relish the life-changing opportunity to live and work there, apply now.
Oh, and don't forget your camera. Those social media posts won't write themselves.
