Do you thrive working with customers to make their ideas a reality? If so and you’re experienced in LED lighting sales, this role provides the perfect career opportunity for you to apply your exemplary relationship building skills and reap the rewards from your results, as part of a reputable and growing business.

Who will I be working with?

MJ Lighting is part of an award-winning Group providing electronic manufacturing services and specialist LED lighting. The company is innovative and ambitious, supporting one-off bespoke projects as well as large scale high volume roll outs. The business scope covers from initial concept and design through to complete LED lighting solution, with technical advice and service available throughout the entire process. The small yet highly trained teams of lighting experts provide the familiar and friendly service of a smaller company but with the ability to conduct projects of a much larger scale.

MJ Lighting has undertaken numerous projects in both the retail and architectural arenas, including providing industry-acclaimed lighting for well-known names such as Nike and The Science Museum. Continued expansion has seen the company recently re-locate to the high growth facilities at Thornton Science Park, at the heart of Cheshire’s hi-tech science corridor.

As a Sales Account Manager, you will deliver exceptional customer service to clients in order to build strong lasting relationships.
