Trainee Accounts Manager



Salary: £25,000 + uncapped commission (£6000 year 1 OTE)

Location: Blackburn

Sector: Manufacturing and Trading (retail)

Start date: April 2023

This is an amazing opportunity to join a family run, retail traders, who have been supplying good to retail stores across the UK and Europe for over 15 years!

The Company:

Founded in 2006, my client has been growing and developing ever since, on a mission to become the number 1 supplier to retail stores around Europe.

They supply toys, games, homeware, stationery, books and so much more…

Their office is located in Blackburn, where you'll be working alongside the Head of Sales, directly!

However, after the first few months of settling in, you’ll be out on the road (or in the air), meeting clients F2F to present and showcase the products you can offer, or trying to grow your list of accounts at tradeshows.

This is a family run business, so they want someone who wants to paint their own path and has that entrepreneurial mindset. Your future in this company, can very easily be directed depending on the areas you’re thriving in/enjoying.

Benefits/What You Get:

  • Basic salary of £25,000...which is well above average for similar roles
  • Average commission in year one is £31,000, but this is uncapped and there is no reason why you shouldn’t make more
  • Direct onboarding and training from the Head of Sales, who will be working directly with 1-2-1 every single day
  • Training on the job is widely encouraged, however their will be an element of ‘classroom’ based training when you join

The Role:

  • Attain a thorough knowledge of the business itself, the industry and their clients – become a market expert
  • Create a pipeline of business through proactively calling, or ideally meeting your clients F2F to sell to them
  • Attend tradeshows in the UK and around the world (this year they’re going to Dubai, Vienna, Holland and LA)
  • Build rapport with key decision makers to give the ultimate experience
  • Update the company database and be 100% compliant

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Educated to degree level
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Ambitious and driven – the want to hit targets and progress
  • Confident - they want outgoing personalities, not robots!
  • The want to become a super successful sales professional
