If you’re keen to succeed in sales and are confident and self-motivated, with fantastic people skills, how about working for one of the UK’s top-performing private companies? As Sales Executive at our Beenham office, near Reading, there are fantastic opportunities to progress and develop. You’ll join us on a permanent full-time contract and earn a competitive salary, uncapped commission and great benefits, including:

- Company car (you must have a full UK driving licence and live within, or be willing to relocate to, within a 40-mile radius of Beenham)
- Pension scheme – auto-enrolment on your first day with us. You contribute 5% of pay (true cost is less due to Income Tax and NI relief) and Grundon matches this

The Sales Executive role
In this job, every day is different; you meet new people and manage your own time and diary. As our Sales Executive, you will be part of a wider friendly and close-knit team where everyone works together and helps each other out. You will:

- Create and retain your own account base of customers, ensuring they have waste solutions that meet their needs.
- Manage existing accounts and convert queries into sales.
- Make your own appointments to visit clients face to face, but also undertake cold calling – essential to build up your database.

The opportunities to progress are one of the best in the industry. We're growing and developing new waste innovations and solutions that can help our customers – from shops and schools to restaurants and manufacturers – achieve their ‘green’ aspirations. You only have to visit our Energy from Waste facility on the outskirts of London – one of the most modern facilities of its type in the UK – to realise that a career with us is far from boring!

What we’re looking for in our Sales Executive
- Waste industry or sales experience would be a bonus.
- Proactive and highly self-motivated; a persuasive ‘people person’ with great communication skills.
- You’re good at organising your time and meeting deadlines.
- Ideally, familiarity with your territory:  Reading, Basingstoke, Andover, Alton, Newbury, Hungerford, Swindon and the area surrounding the depot.

What are the working hours?
9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, although flexibility is required.
