If you're keen to succeed in sales and have worked in the waste industry in some capacity (e.g. customer service), how about a new role with fantastic opportunities to progress and develop, working for Grundon - one of the UK's top-performing private companies? As Sales Executive, you'll join a small team at our Gatwick office, near Redhill, Surrey, on a permanent full-time contract and earn a competitive salary, uncapped commission and some great benefits, including:

- Company car (you must live or be willing to relocate to within 40 miles of our Gatwick office).

About 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 close-knit team where everyone works together and helps each other out. You will:
- Create and retain your own account base of customer, 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.

Grow with Grundon
The opportunities to progress are one of the best in the industry because 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 modern Energy from Waste facility on the outskirts of London to realise that a career with us is far from boring.

What we're looking for in our Sales Executive
- Waste industry knowledge and experience.
- You're proactive and highly self-motivated; a persuasive 'people person' with great communication skills.
- You're good at organising your time and meeting deadlines.
