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.

VP Transportation – APAC
US/£/€Very Competitive Six Figure Base Salary + Bonus + Blue Chip Benefits + Relocation Assistance
South East Asia
You may think you’re a big hitter in transportation and logistics but are you ready to up your game?
Can you build on your success in your current territory and take it to an emerging market? Would you like to impart your knowledge of best practice and develop a large, complex third-party contract logistics operation in a different country?
What if there was an opportunity to head up a 3PL operation in South East Asia? And be relocated as well?
Enough of the questions. As an experienced VP/Senior Director of Transportation with an outstanding career in 3PL and in-house, you may be the person they need.
Ideally, you’ll be degree qualified in a relevant discipline, and your background will be from retail, grocery, or FMCG. Importantly, you’ll be able to demonstrate the effective management of complex 3PL or in-house operations of at least 1000 vehicles across multiple sites.
Suppose you’ve worked in Europe, the US, or the APAC region. In that case, you’ll be used to operating across multiple areas with different borders and infrastructures, and that’s important as our client needs someone who can quickly adapt to different cultures and procedures.
If you’ve previously headed up a 3PL operation and then moved to an in-house role with a large, multi-national operation, that could work as well. The nature of the cluster means a broad scope of supply, covering retail, fmcg, eCommerce, pharma, technology network, from the major cities and conurbations all the way through to the tourist hubs around the region. As such, the operations are complex, and there are significant strategic and operational challenges in coordinating all these varied activities.
As you can imagine, this certainly isn’t a generic role, and there’s plenty of detail we’ll need to discuss, so start the ball rolling by sending your CV to email@example.com quoting reference LX 703438
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR – EUROPE
"Sales Hunter/New Business Development role for Consultative Solutions Professional with strong consistent and recent track record of sales to HR, Sales and Marketing functions.
£/€Competitive Six Figure Base Salary + Bonus + Blue Chip Benefits
Location: Flexible Pan European Field and Home based – UK, Germany, Switzerland or Benelux
If you had a business with 20,000 employees or more, how would you motivate 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 Benelux, 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
