Jobs

Head of Sales


This is not your typical Head of Sales role, we are not a typical company.
 
We are growing at an extremely fast pace, we have recently improved our production capabilities and capacity and invested in our brand, you will be the next cog in the wheel to ensure our sales continue to grow and we maximise the commercial benefit.
 
You will be driven, determined and experienced in leading a sales team.  You will have had sales responsibility for turnovers in excess of £30m and have the desire and knowledge to shape our future sales strategy.
 
It is not a completely blank sheet of paper, because we have some great colleagues who have helped us grow our sales by over 50% in the last year who will be instrumental in us continuing our growth at a similar rate.
 
You will need to be a team player, solutions focused, adaptable and most importantly someone who can manage the opportunities and deliver sustainable growth. Someone who can operate in the ‘here and now’ but have the vision for the future.
 
We believe in ‘Discovering Better’, it’s at the heart of what we do, so you will need to be comfortable in constantly raising the bar and adapting as we grow and opportunities emerge.
 
You should relish constant challenges and changes to improve the business. We are a fast-growing business so we are far from perfect, but we are honest!
 
What makes us different is our collaborative approach to business, where we all take responsibility for our actions, ensuring we all move in the same direction.
