Salesperson wanted / Elvstrøm Sails UK
Experience from sales / Flair for customer service / Passion for sailing
Here is your chance to join a well-established leading company with a proud heritage and brand, Elvstrøm Sails. We are busy at Elvstrøm Sails and growing our market presence worldwide. To strengthen our sales team in Port Hamble, Southampton we are looking for a sales person to join the team. You are most probably already working in the boating and sailing industry, but eager to try out new challenges within an international growth company.
- where selling meets sailing
You will be referring directly to our manager of Elvstrøm Sails UK, Jeremy White and be part of a small flexible team in the UK, whilst also being part of the entire Elvstrøm Sails Group with back-up and close cooperation with your colleagues in Denmark. You will be close to the customer and work with hands-on technical advice to guide the customer to the right solution. It is a big plus if you are a sail maker, but if not we will train you. What really matters is that you are motivated, eager to learn, contribute and can make a difference. Selling sails has so many aspects – from understanding your customer, acknowledging the adventure, sport or leisure time that is so precious and understanding the technical parameters in rigging, sail-set up and sail handling. It takes a technically gifted person to build that bridge between the optimal sail solution and the optimal sailing experience.
With your outgoing and positive attitude you will be able to make a big difference. The vision and goals for the UK loft are ambitious with strong focus on delivering results and satisfying our customers’ needs. At Elvstrøm Sails excellent service is as paramount as high quality, of course!
We take for granted that you are service minded with an eye to detail. You acknowledge the importance of going the extra mile, and pro-active sales and customer contact comes quite natural for you. Personal drive is one of your characteristics, and with a structured and hard-working attitude you are capable of keeping many balls in the air. You thrive working independently, but is also a team player who helps out your colleagues when needed.
In terms of IT you need to be able to quickly adapt to new IT systems and platforms.
We are a passionate team with a proud brand, and this is your chance to be part of a small independent team – yet at the same time part of a big knowledgeable group. We offer training in UK as well as in Denmark at the Headquarters, within our product range, our systems and IT platforms. After a period of training we expect you to be able to service and develop your customer segment.
Since we are busy, we are looking for a colleague as soon as possible. You will be working at the loft in Southampton, but should expect some travelling within the UK as well as some international travel days. We offer a salary package that corresponds to qualifications and responsibility.
Please send your application along with your C.V. to Elvstrøm Sails UK, Unit 2 HYS, Port Hamble, SO31 4NN Southampton to the attention of Jeremy White. Feel free to call Jeremy at +44 (0)2380 450430 for further information.
