Field Sales Executive

We’ll give you over 10,000 reasons to make customers smile :-)

If you are in sales, you’ll love making customers smile and making them happy day-in and day-out has been instrumental to Lyreco becoming the benchmark in the Office and Workplace solution industry, with quality products (over 10,000 of them) and unparalleled service. How many companies can you name that deliver 99.4% of products to customers within 24 hours?

If you thought the world of Office and Workplace solution selling was promoting paper and pens think again. Whatever consumables or Workplace solutions a customer needs, we can provide. From furniture to files; coffee to calculators; lamps to laminators; and napkins to notebooks, along with an extensive range of specialised products such as Personal Protection Equipment, Hygiene and Catering products through to shredding services and bespoke products that can be branded to specific customer needs, we are indeed the one stop shop for all our customers’ needs in the work place.

Meeting and exceeding customers expectations is a core Lyreco value which means that we are looking for talented sales people who can not only develop customers sales and profitability, but who go the extra mile, time after time. Our customers recognise the difference between an average sales person and an exceptional one – and so do we.

We consider applicants who have the ability to exceed in a sales environment, therefore do consider people without direct sales experience; because our training is second to none we have the confidence that we can develop people into becoming a successful Field Sales Executive. In addition, we also look for natural sales people who exude confidence and can demonstrate tenacity and an impressive record of hitting sales goals – not necessarily in B2B. Of more importance will be your ability to just go out and do it - open doors and hunt down new business whilst closing doors of existing customers to our competitors. Happy customers don’t tend to leave the Lyreco fold.

We’ve got a successful formula of managing and developing customers and you should be comfortable with following our sales guidelines. That does not mean your role will be prescriptive. Far from it. You will have considerable autonomy over how you manage your territory and your day, and how you strike deals, achieve margins, introduce new customers, etc. But you’ll need to be organised – well organised – to manage a hectic schedule and to delight your customers.

Ideally as our Field Sales Executive, you should live locally to your sales territory of Hailsham, Bexhill and Hastings in areas such as Eastbourne, Ninfield, East Hoathly, Normans Bay,  Hooe and surrounding areas.

The benefits of working with Lyreco are world class and include an attractive basic, an uncapped monthly bonus plus a quarterly bonus scheme (top performers earn bonuses in excess of £1k per month), company car, private health care, pension and regular big ticket prizes such as fully expensed luxury holidays.

The training is also legendary – products / skills / techniques – residential / on the job / refresher. Our very best sales people are always learning. And with success and regular target achievement comes regular salary progression and promotion. You do the business and we’ll recognise your achievements like no other company you have ever worked for.

If you like the idea of working in a sales environment where you can delight customers every day Monday to Friday with the very best products and services in the sector, please click apply today for our Field Sales Executive.
